What is the Best Guillotine Cutter For Me?

Here at AfterPrint, we have been providing our clients with cutting edge paper guillotines for over 50 years. In that time, we have supplied our Print Finishing machines to a wide variety of industries. Therefore, we understand the different demands expected of our guillotine cutters and we work with our clients to discover which is the best for them. In order to help with this, the AfterPrint team have put together the following guide to get you started.

What Guillotine Cutter Can I Get?

Thanks to our industry knowledge and trusted foundations within the Print Finishing Industry, we have been able to secure exclusive UK Dealerships with a variety of market leading brands. Therefore, we are proud to offer our clients the very best cutting edge guillotine cutters from brands like Grafcut and Ideal.

Grafcut Paper Guillotines

Grafcut is a brand with over 40 years of experience designing and manufacturing print finishing machines. Their guillotine cutters are almost entirely produced in Warsaw, Poland. This includes their CNC cutting, grinding, milling and powder coating. It’s these in house processes that allow the factory to control the quality of their products from inception through to completion, ensuring that a high standard and attention to detail is fulfilled. You can also feel confident knowing that our Grafcut Guillotines meet strict EU safety requirements, forming part of the full CE Certification.

There are four options of guillotine cutter from Grafcut ranging from entry level to fully hydraulic machines. Therefore, our range can cater to everything from a university to a large digital printer.

Ideal Paper Guillotine

Ideal’s guillotine cutters are one of the most recognisable in the world and this comes with good reason. Not only is their range vast to cater for so many different industries, but they are manufactured to be of the highest quality. Whether you’re looking for a manual desktop guillotine or a commercial machine, we’ve got you covered. One of their most popular products and their flagship option is the Ideal Guillotine 7260. With hydraulic hybrid operation, an air table for easy paper maneuverability and twin trigger activation, it can comfortably and quickly cut approximately 800 sheets.

Whether you’re a digital printer in need of power or you’re an educational establishment requiring one of our compact benchtop models, Ideal can also cater for any situation.

2nd User Guillotines

If you’re not bothered about buying a brand new machine, you may be interested in checking out our 2nd user range. All of the models on sale have been fully refurbished and tested by our engineers. They are also sold with a 3 month warranty for further assurance. If you can’t find what you need today, keep checking back as our stock updates regularly.

Why Should I Invest in a Guillotine Cutter?

If your business requires you to cut reams upon reams of paper both quickly and efficiently, it may be worth investing in a guillotine cutter. Here at AfterPrint, we understand that time is money for most of our clients. That’s why our paper guillotines are designed to improve efficiency in the workplace. For example, if you’re a digital printer that needs to be cutting hundreds of sheets to a tight deadline, a hydraulic option such as our Ideal Guillotine 7260 or Grafcut Guillotine G73H could be a great fit. However, if you’re looking for a more entry level machine that can cope with slightly lower loads, our Grafcut Guillotine G52 or even our manual benchtop models such as the Ideal Guillotine 4300 could be much more suitable.

Not only can these machines improve efficiency, but with some of our models being fully programmable, the possibilities of your cutting can also become endless.

What Should I Consider Before Buying?

Whilst price is an important factor to get right, you shouldn’t make this the deciding factor. If you wish to end up with the right machine, it’s vital that you carefully consider your requirements. Having a good understanding of what you will expect the paper guillotine to do is a much more helpful base for deciding on a model.

In addition to this, you should also consider the space that you have available, and your experience operating this kind of machinery. If you’re at all unsure about which model will be right for you, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Our team prides themselves on offering their expertise to our clients in order to ensure you make the right decision.
