Print finishing specialist Sydney Stone (Mississauga, Ontario), a Morgana dealer since the early 1980s, and recently recognized as the top dealer worldwide for Morgana digital finishing technology, has introduced the Morgana AutoCut Pro to Canada. Designed for digital print shops that require high-speed creasing and trimming for a wide range of products – such as business cards, promotional items and more – it features tri-suction feeding that can handle paper weights of 120 gsm to 350 gsm and sheet sizes up to 27.5 inches long (with an optional extended feed kit). The AutoCut Pro can crease up to 5,000 letter-sized sheets per hour and finish a 250 business cards in less than 2 minutes.
“There’s been a gap in the market for slit, cut and crease machines that are able to produce output at a reasonable budget,” said Michael Steele, co-owner of Sydney Stone. “This Morgana AutoCut Pro has all the speed capacity and reliability coupled with a price point that makes it very attractive.” The machine can also be easily coupled with the Morgana AutoFold Pro to provide an end-to-end slit, cut, crease and fold solution. The optional Multi Purpose Stacker can be used to collect paper from print engines to move easily to other finishing devices.
“This latest multi-function finishing unit takes automation to the next level, along with a production speed suited to the busiest of print facilities,” said Ray Hillhouse, General Manager of Morgana Systems. “Regular formats can be stored within the system for fast and accurate ‘push-button’ production.”
Sydney Stone was established in 1951 and since that time, has grown to become one of the premier Canadian distributors of print-finishing equipment and supplies throughout the world, importing and representing brands such as Morgana, MOHR, EBA, Vivid, Watkiss and Duplo, to name a few. With a focus on the short-run and medium-run print market, Sydney Stone offers solutions to the challenges found in this segment.
