WHY SCISSOR HANDS
Upgrade your cutting machines with enhanced JDF automation: Real Artificial Intelligence - Fewer Cuts Required - No Programming or Lookups - Less Product Handling - Optimized for Your Packaging - Slash Operator Time
INNOVATION IN PRINTING
The key to improving cutting machine efficiency is simple. Create a single cut program which covers all lifts of a run, rather than a shorter program that is repeated for each lift. This allows cuts to be shared among parts of multiple lifts, thus reducing the total number of cuts required to finish the run.
EASE OF USE
Scissor Hands removes training barriers which make cutting traditionally a journeyman’s job. The instructive, touch-screen animations and the elimination of programming reduce training for new operators from months (i.e. how to make and use cut programs) to hours (i.e. an overview of safety features and SOP). New operators can see which direction to load and rotate the lift by watching the animations.
Using Scissor Hands, cutter operators handle less finished product before packaging. This reduces spills and cross-ships. One case study using a layout generated by Metrix showed a Scissor Hands cut program with 50% fewer cuts when compared to traditional repeat-per-lift cut programs. Furthermore, Scissor Hands moves ganged product downstream faster by finishing parts of multiple lifts at the same time rather than partially-filling packages with each lift.
Scissor Hands allows a bindery to increase throughput without losing precious floor space to additional machines. Its automated data collection improves the accuracy and amount of data available to management. Finally, by using Scissor Hands a print provider will have less cutting burden from using complex ganging solutions, allowing them to enjoy the paper savings of ganging without the bindery bottleneck.
