Roland DGA Corp. has introduced the VersaCUT line of print trimmers engineered specifically for production graphics shops. Available in North and South America (except Brazil), the new line allows sign, screen and print-for-pay shops to easily and accurately trim finished prints. Both manual and crank assisted models are available.
“The VersaCUT trimmers are affordable and designed with features that significantly reduce errors and make the trimming process easier for both flexible and rigid graphics,” said Andrew Oransky, director of product management for Roland. “The VersaCUT CR models are the industry’s only products that bridge the gap between hand units and fully mechanized trimmers or expensive wall cutters.”
VersaCUT Manual Trimmer
Available in 44,” 68” and 100” widths, the VersaCUT manual trimmer is designed to cut flexible or rigid substrates. This model supports a wide range of media including vinyl, paper, Coroplast™ and foamboard and can cut Sintra™ in multiple passes. It transitions easily between substrates without the need for any adjustment or changes to setup.
VersaCUT is compact, lightweight and constructed almost entirely of aluminum and stainless steel for stable operation and resistance to rust and corrosion. Unlike many rotary trimmers, VersaCUT allows users to see exactly where the cut will be placed on the substrate. Blade changes are fast and easy with replacement blades priced at just $0.15 each. An optional stand includes a roll hanger to support full rolls of printed graphics.
VersaCUT CR Crank Assisted Model
Offered in 48” and 72” sizes, VersaCUT CR crank assisted trimmers are designed to cut Sintra, Gatorfoam™, Coroplast™ and other rigid substrates up to 1/2” thick without the complexity of a motorized unit and at a fraction of the cost.
VersaCUT CR can be secured to a workbench and easily repositioned to meet the needs of each individual job. By contrast, wall trimmers require users to trim at a fixed station and to position prints vertically for trimming.
VersaCUT CR requires just 35 psi of compressed air to operate. Its standard dual blade holder supports hard substrates and an optional single blade holder is available for higher speed cutting of softer materials.
The VersaCUT line is available from authorized Roland dealers. Without the special promotional offer, prices start at $699. For more information, call Roland Customer Services at (800) 542-2307 or visit www.rolanddga.com.
