- What is a cut mark?
The mark automatically corrects the cut start position of each sheet once the sensor detects a print deviation in longer side direction of the A4 sheet.
Even when there is no mark, it can be cut by manually adjusting the width of tip margin.
- How difficult is it to replace the slitter unit?
There are no tools required to replace the slitter unit, it can be replaced easily with a single knob screw.
- What is the durability of the blade?
The durability of the blade differs by upward and downward depending on various factors such as paper type, paper thickness, paper size, surface finish, toner density, cut mode, machine installation environment, and so on.
As one guideline, there is a record of cutting cutter: 5 million cut (single cut) with 100% pulp, fine pulp, fine quality, blank paper, Y eye, 165 g / m 2 test paper. Durability will be shortened if you cut a printed thick mount.
Durability of the slitter thin round blade is about 1.5 times the number of mounts that can be cut with the cutter blade.
There is no endurance guarantee of the blade.
- Can laminated paper or tack seal sheet be cut?
This is out of scope of specifications as there are cases where the glue or the material sticks to the blade and the blade becomes blunt.
There are some types of media that can be cut, but it cannot be verified and guaranteed by the manufacturer.
- Can colored sheets be cut?
It is equipped with a paper detection sensor that can be widely used for the cutting of dark-colored sheets such as black and semi-transparent paper. (Not all colors can be supported. We recommend a good pre-validation.) You can also correct the position with white toner mark on black paper for auto-correction of the cut position (cut mark function).

It corresponds to A4 size (297 mm × 210 mm), SR - A 4 size (320 mm × 225 mm),
EU postcard 4 - pack mount (148 mm × 105mm) .
- Can the cut marks printed by an inkjet printer be read?
Although the inkjet cut marks can be read, the durability of the blade may decrease due to the effect of the solvent coated on the inkjet sheet.
- Single cut and double cut will mistake cutting mode switching. Can not be unified with imposition of double cut (mode 3)?
The single cut (mode 1) has the following merit compared with double cut (mode 3).
- The number of cuts is about 1/2.
(The running cost can be halved.)
- Electrostatic trouble (paper jam due to horizontal margin sticking) becomes almost zero, and the occurrence of waste paper is suppressed.
- The cutting speed increases and work efficiency increases.
Basically use cut mode 1, please use cut mode 3 only when design is necessary for cosmetic cutting.
- The number of cuts is about 1/2.
- Please tell me how to solve the gap of cuts in printing.
Please refer to "Troubleshooting measures for gap of cuts" in the trouble shooting room.
