Buyer's Guide: Choosing A Corner Rounder

Buyer's Guide: Choosing A Corner Rounder
Choosing a Conner Rounder can be tough... there are so many choices! In deciding what corner rounder to purchase, there are several factors to consider regarding your particular application needs. Before purchasing a corner rounder, ask yourself the following questions to help guide you to the correct corner rounding machine.

  • What is my volume?: The size of your jobs is an important factor because some corner rounders are easier to use than others. There are both manual and electric corner rounders. The manual units take more physical effort while the electric require only the press of a foot pedal. In addition, certain models are capable of cutting through thicker stacks of product than others.

  • What material will I be cutting?: The majority of desktop and floor standing corner rounders cut through paper as well as thin plastic such as laminate. However, only specific models can cut through materials including aluminum, leather, PVC, Polypropylene, etc. For example, the CR-60 is designed specifically for the sign industry. It is able to cut half hard aluminum up to .080. The Diamond 5 Corner Rounder is capable of cutting through leather and PVC as well as other products. Make sure the unit you decide on is capable of handling your application.

  • How many sheets do I want to punch at one time?: Corner Rounders are not all made alike. Different models will cut through different amounts of product. Corner rounder capabilities range from cutting 1 sheet at a time up to 2" stacks. Be careful with this one. Higher prices do not always equal higher capacities.
