About the Grafcut Guillotine G73

The Grafcut G73H is the flagship of the Grafcut range. A fully configured professional guillotine, capable of handling all types of work up to B2 in format. Full hydraulically powered operation of both the knife and clamp ensure effortless cutting performance. Even on the most difficult stock, whilst the adjustable clamping pressures ensure even delicate media is handled without fuss. A programmable Air Table eases the movement of the stack into position by blowing air through the stainless steel bed. Optional side tables allow stacks to be positioned to increase throughput. Open framework with raised IR Safety Curtains allow for easy removal of paper waste into a waste hopper or recycle bin.

An Integrated 175mm Colour Touch Screen Controller incorporating operator prompts and a pop-up qwerty keyboard makes for easy and smooth operation. The servo-driven, high speed, fully programmable back gauge moves between cut positions in seconds, optical cutting indication via a clear RED Laser Emitter and electronically controlled paper push function with manual fine positioning, all make the Grafcut G73H an exceptionally highly productive package.

Safety is assured thanks to the IR Safety Curtain technology from SICK and true two handed operation via a SICK Safety Controller. Error messaging, adjustable side lay guides and the market leading safety functions further enhance the guillotines appeal as a production machine.

Why Grafcut?

Grafcut Guillotines integrate cutting edge technology with state of the art electronic componentry with the incorporation of Delta PLC Controllers, SICK Safety Systems & Omron Electronics, all of which are compliant to the very latest developments in EN Standards and CE Compliance.

All models incorporate an intuitive colour touch screen display with pop-up qwerty keyboard for descriptive naming of stored work, a self-diagnostic system to pin points any faults, eject functions, pre-clamping modes and adjustable clamping pressures to offer an efficient and accurate operation ensuring that the guillotine is not a business bottleneck.

This is all backed up by a Market Leading 2 Year Manufacturer Warranty.
