The new Zip-21C cutter/slitter is the high speed version of the original Zip21 designed to cut business cards & other multiple-up products produced from a range of different printing methods. The Zip21C is significantly faster producing 17,000 card per hour and comes mounted on a stand which houses the extra large waste container required for such quick operating speeds.

 The Zip-21C cross cuts the sheet with a guillotine and then, with a very easily adjustable blade cassette, it 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-up or 24-up business cards) to be accurately processed in a single pass.

 It 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 image drift which are so common with digital printers. 

The horizontal cutting data is simply programmed via a touch screen. The control system allows 999 Job memories to store the data. Straight cuts or a variable size gutter can be removed between the individual cards whilst vertically a fixed 6mm gutter is removed from between each column of cards. The sides of the sheet are removed by slitting wheels which can be quickly and easily adjusted to any size. For those regular jobs or special set-ups, additional blade cassettes are available.

 When running, Batch Counting is a useful feature the touch screen allows along with the ability to vary the motor speeds for different or difficult stocks.

Combined with a digital printer, the Zip-21C allows volume business cards and other multi-up products to be produced with ease. This latest model is the fastest Zip in the range and will produce up to 283 finished business cards per minute (17,000 per hour).
