The Fotoba XLA170 offers automation, helping to increase productivity and reduce labor costs.

Bar Code Reader:

A bar code is printed on the sheet outside of the image, then the bar code reader interprets the cut data, and the vertical rotary slitters are set to the cut position automatically.

Slitter Automation: 

The XLA170 features six double rotary slitters with the ability to cut up to five equal size prints, side by side. If there are less than five print sizes, side by side, the rotary slitters move out of the way automatically.

In the past, different image sizes in the same media roll required the operator to stop the cutter, reposition the vertical slitters, and restart the cutter for each image change. The new Fotoba XLA170 does this operation automatically.


The Fotoba XLA170 automatic digital cutter, combined with the Colorado 16XX and other roll to roll printers, opens a wide range of graphic applications for the print service provider. The Fotoba XLA170, can cut a wide variety of materials that include and are not limited to; wall coverings, floor graphics, paper, posters, SAV (decal material), stickers, banner, window graphics, signs, and canvas.


The XLA utilizes technology for high precision cutting applications such as butt joint wallpaper installation applications. The XLA affords the opportunity to eliminate wallpaper overlap for a smooth continuous look for wallpaper décor.
