Canon Solutions America (Melville, New York) has added three Celero Series Digital Cutters (Series 3, 5 and 7) from MultiCam, an OEM specialist in the large-format finishing market, to its finishing solutions portfolio. The Celero Series Cutters, manufactured to specifications, provides the versatility to cut and finish a wide range of graphics in an efficient and cost-effective manner. The operator-friendly, advanced flatbed cutters are designed to support both rigid and flexible substrates. Equipped with standard features and options to benefit an entry-level to proficient-level customer base, these cutters allow printers to choose a system that will meet their exact specifications and business operations. Each model is manufactured at MultiCam’s 108,000-square-foot production facility in Dallas, Texas that, since 1989, has produced over 13,000 cutting machines. The new additions to the Celero Series Digital Cutters now offered through Canon Solutions America include:
Celero 3 Series: An entry-level cutter designed to meet the needs of small to mid-sized print providers. This system can cut both rigid and flexible substrates with its included router and knife system. The modular tooling can process a wide variety of substrates on the 60” x 120” cutting table.
Celero 5 Series: A mid-level cutting system that can be integrated with a high level of production output from a 60” x 120” table. The 5 Series high-speed option can enhance the cutting speed up to 6,000 inches per minute (IPM), making the 5 Series “one of the fastest cutting systems on the market today.” The optional Automatic Tool Changer allows the operator to change knives or router bits through an automated process, thus increasing overall productivity.
Celero 7 Series: A highly productive system designed to allow printers “unparalleled routing capabilities as well as one of the fastest knife-cutting speeds in the industry.” The 7 Series products can cut at up to 7,800 inches per minute (IPM). There are three models in the 7 Series range with a variety of cutting table sizes to help meet the demands of high-volume shops. MultiCam manufactures 60” x 120”, 127” x 78.74” and 127” x 157” table sizes, which can help reduce operator processing time. Each model of the 7 Series cutters has the option to utilize an Automatic Tool Change Systems (ATC) that can change up to 18 tools—nine knives and nine router bits. Each model’s cutters are equipped with Universal and Oscillating Knives. With the addition of these cutter models, MultiCam, will also continue to support Canon Solutions America with technical knowledge and after-sales support. This partnership will provide a high level of technical expertise for print providers, the OEMs added.
