Colter & Peterson (C&P, Booth 4013), the largest independent distributor of paper cutting and paper handling equipment, will feature three new products at Print 17 September 10-14 at McCormick Place in Chicago. C&P will introduce the new E-Cut series (a 45-inch Saber Paper cutting system with automated knife adjustment), and a 31” Prism paper cutter. The last two machines represent the company’s premier brand lines and will be showcased with the Microcut electronics package “that can increase production by as much as 50%.” The E-Cut series is a new economy line of paper cutters “that will be the least expensive machine in the marketplace, depending on the size.” With state-of-the-art design, it offers steady and reliable performance with a simple controller. The automated knife adjustment follows in the footsteps of other C&P equipment that promotes ease-of-use and greater productivity.
The new 31-inch Prism Paper Cutting System “has earned its reputation for the precision and accuracy of its high-speed steel knives as well as its rugged durability.” Both cutters will be demonstrated with the time-saving 15” Microcut Plus Cutter Control System. The system offers a wide-format programmable touchscreen and new software with enhanced graphics for converted JDF files. The added graphics program is colour coordinated, allowing the operator to see exactly what’s being cut, making it easier to determine what to keep and what to throw away. Other benefits include money-saving features where programs are uploaded from the network connection with a USB device using CIP3 and CIP4 files – no additional hardware or software is needed.
