The new Zip-21 cutter/slitter is faster and more accurate than the original model. It is the SRA3 version of the popular Zip-10M. Both are unique machines designed to cut business cards & other multiple-up products which are produced from a range of different printing methods.

The Zip-21 cross cuts the sheet with a guillotine and then, with an easily adjustable blade cassette, will slit and/or score the sheet immediately before it exits to the delivery tray. This clever combination of two cutting systems allows a multitude of common products (like 21 or 24-up business cards) to be accurately processed in a single pass.

The new model Zip21 can register from either the lead edge of the sheet, or from a printed registration mark at the top of the job, thereby reducing the problems of mis-feeding or image drift which are so common with today’s printers.

The cut points are entered via a keypad which allows a straight cut or a variable size gutter to be removed between the individual cards. A fixed 6mm gutter is removed from between each column of cards and the sheet sides are removed by slitting wheels.

The card width can be quickly and easily adjusted to any size by moving the slitting wheels mechanically. For regular jobs or special set-ups additional blade cassettes can be purchased.

The machine is fitted with a two sheet detector as standard thereby eliminating any problems that may occur with troublesome stocks!

Combined with a laser or ink jet printer, the Zip-21 allows volume business cards and other multi-up products to be produced with ease. This latest model is now even faster and will produce up to 166 finished business cards per minute (10,000 per hour).
