Canon Solutions America has added two new flatbed cutters to its Colex Sharpcut product line. The Colex Sharpcut Digital Finishing System was introduced last year as an entry-level cutting solution for customers looking to help grow their business through increased application capabilities. With the expansion of the finishing solution developed by Colex, Canon Solutions America “aims to help provide dynamic workflow possibilities for every customer.” In addition to the Sharpcut SX3216 (5’ x 10’), Canon Solutions America now has commercially available the new Sharpcut SX1616 (5’ x 5’ table size, available with or without conveyor) and the Sharpcut SX3232C (10 ½’ x 10 ½’ table size, conveyor included) for super-wide applications. These products are manufactured in the U.S. using the same technologies as the Sharpcut SX3216. Both models serve markets requiring automatic knife cutting, creasing and routing operations at a competitive price point. Each model includes a fixed knife, oscillating knife with an optional 3HP router upgrade, and additional tools to customize a customer’s workflow, allowing the capability for a multitude of applications.

Examples of these applications include: Displays and POPs (3-dimensional product displays by contour cutting, trimming, routing, and creasing for both rigid and flexible media); Packaging (samples for corrugated, folding carton, foam and other packaging needs are produced easily with automatic cutting and creasing); Graphics (two-dimensional signs, decals, banners, outdoor exhibits and intricate lettering can all be cut, trimmed, or routed within minutes), and Textiles and Fabrics (cut textiles, fabrics and other fibrous materials with the Colex Sharpcut’s motorized fabric cutter).
