Petaluma, CA, USA. Montreal, QC, Canada. June 17th, 2020. Microcut, a division of Colter & Peterson, world leader in paper cutter automation, and Ultimate TechnoGraphics, leader in imposition and finishing automation solutions, are pleased to demonstrate the seamless integration of respective finishing automation technologies through an educational webinar on Tuesday, June 23rd at 10AM EDT.
Through their strong partnership, the two vendors open the door of finishing automation to print facilities with aging guillotine paper cutters. By updating their cutting equipment with Microcut easy-to-use system, print service providers can easily integrate Ultimate Bindery® finishing automation software solution to reduce waste, minimize error, achieve faster turnaround times and move specialized labour away from repetitive tasks.
‘’Automation is key to thriving in today’s print market’’ says Julie Watson, CEO of Ultimate TechnoGraphics. “The pressure to process a wider variety of short run jobs everyday means you need to take a different approach to print production. When considering automating finishing, one can start small and start now by retrofitting your guillotine and driving it with dynamic software, and this is what this webinar will demonstrate.”
Microcut for guillotine cutters can update the back-gauge movement on any legacy paper cutter, offering increased productivity, greater accuracy, and improved reliability. The addition of microcut software will optimize the performance of any used guillotine paper cutter, easily giving it a higher level of performance for a fraction of the cost of a new machine.
“A guillotine is one of the easiest pieces of equipment to update to modern standards” says Richard Peereboom, President of Microcut. ‘’Without investing large sums of money into capital equipment, you can modernize your existing older equipment in less than a day and take advantage of converting .JDF files to program your cutter automatically in just a few seconds”.
Ultimate Bindery® is a standalone software solution designed to fill the gap between prepress and finishing. It can take any JDF imposed job and complete it with all the necessary parameters needed to automatically set up finishing equipment such as perfect binder, saddle-stitcher, cutter, slitter-creaser, 3-knife cutter, etc. Ultimate Bindery® is a unique hub of knowledge that validates jobs for finishing and eliminate make ready, making a real difference in printers’ productivity to ultimately translate in a better bottom line.
