July 20, 2017

Two new flatbed cutter models offer new possibilities for print service providers

MELVILLE, N.Y., July 20, 2017 - Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc. today announced that two flatbed cutter models have been added to their Colex Sharpcut product offering. The Colex® Sharpcut™ Digital Finishing System was introduced last year as an entry-level cutting solution for customers looking to help grow their business through increased application capability. With the expansion of the finishing solution developed by Colex, Canon Solutions America aims to help provide dynamic workflow possibilities for every customer.

In addition to the Sharpcut SX3216 (5’ x 10’), Canon Solutions America now has commercially available the new Sharpcut SX1616 (5’ x 5’ table size, available with or without conveyor) and the Sharpcut SX3232C (10’ ½ x 10’ ½ table size, conveyor included) for super wide applications. These products are manufactured in the United States using the same technologies as the Sharpcut SX3216. Both models serve markets requiring automatic knife cutting, creasing, and routing operations at a competitive price point. Each model includes a fixed knife, oscillating knife with an optional 3HP router upgrade, and additional tools to customize the customer’s workflow, allowing the capability for a multitude of applications.

Examples of applications

  • Displays and POPs: 3-dimensional product displays by contour cutting, trimming, routing, and creasing for both rigid and flexible media
  • Packaging: Samples for corrugated, folding carton, foam, and other packaging needs are produced easily with automatic cutting and creasing
  • Graphics: 2-dimensional signs, decals, banners, outdoor exhibits, and intricate lettering can all be cut, trimmed, or routed within minutes
  • Textile and Fabric: Cut textiles, fabrics, and other fibrous materials with the Colex Sharpcut’s motorized fabric cutter

VERSATILITY + SPEED + ACCURACY + AFFORDABLE PRICE

  • Short set-up time with multi-tool head positions and modules
  • Excellent throughput, productivity, and speed without sacrificing quality
  • The ability to produce a wide range of applications on a variety of unique materials
