The ultimate weapon for digital printers, the MBM AeroCut Prime is the most productive and versatile digital finisher, ever. It is the top-end slitter/cutter/creaser system offering vast improvements in technology over the original Aerocut launched in 2009.
The AeroCut Prime features 2 single blade slitters to trim top & bottom margins of sheets, and 2 double blade slitters for bleed gutter cuts, deflecting off-cuts into a waste bin. All the slitter and guillotine blades are self-sharpening and will cut stocks up to 400 gsm in weight. The expandable feed tray is capable to feed stocks up to 26.75" in length, with a stacking capacity of up to 4".
The patented "Tri-suction feeding mechanism" feeds printed stocks one-by-one from the top of the ream on the feed tray. This reduces the risk of double feeds and mis-feeds drastically, therefore preventing paper jam inside and increasing you productivity. The air-suction top feeding system easily feeds coated, digital, gloss and other stocks precisely without damage. A self-correcting cut mark registration function, along with the air suction feed system ensures accurate cuts every time.
The AeroCut Prime has a user friendly, 7" color touch screen control panel, allowing operators to set job programs and run the machine intuitively and instantly. The system includes 268 preset cutting jobs and up to 150 additional custom programs can be stored in memory. The system includes the Lytrod imposition software for setting up and transferring jobs from a PC to the Prime. Job can be changed instantly and is the ideal solution for finishing digitally printed applications.
The rule & matrix creaser equipped on the AeroCut Prime, allows the machine to offer world-class creasing on digitally printed stocks. Creasing pressure can be adjusted in 5 levels instantly by shifting the lever. The AeroCut Prime "Flex Mode" allows an operator to cut multiple size cards from a page and add the desired number of creases on each sheet. This enables designers and printers to cost effectively create a wide range of applications and product offerings to their clients making them stand out from the competition. The Aerocut Prime is an ideal solution for finishing short-run applications, such as business cards, post cards, invitations, greeting cards, leaflets, tickets and more.
Built to last, the robust all-metal construction keeps top level accuracy and finishing quality on every job. Mounted on lockable heavy duty casters, it can be positioned anywhere it's needed inside the shop. The self-sharpening slitter and blade unit allows the machine to cut up to 400 gsm with no wear. Safety being important, the system will not operate with the safety cover in the open position. Maintenance is easy, the Aerocut Prime has detachable rollers, not only making cleaning easy, but gives better access to components in case of a paper jam. Designed to save time and reduce finishing costs for print shops, in-house printers, and commercial printers.
