Product Description


The Challenge Spartan 150SA Semi-Automatic Electric Paper Cutter is a sleek and strong 15" table-top cutter that is perfect for any professional office, copy center, or other on-demand printing environment. Holding true to the Challenge tradition, the Spartan 150-SA cutting machine is engineered and manufactured with safety standards to keep your operators protected; safety shields cover the front and rear tables while the front and side cut buttons require two hands to simultaneously activate the cut cycle. 

Tough power cutting offers a 1/2 HP gear drive motor to power through up to a 1-1/2" stack of paper. Safety covers over the front table (the cutting area) and rear table will pop up after the cutting cycle ends, eliminating the need for the operator to manually do this, increasing productivity and ease-of-use. The manual clamping hand-wheel design results in a higher quality cut by creating a much higher clamping force than the lever design used by competitive brands. The Spartan 150SA is made of a heavy duty steel, cast iron, and cast aluminum construction for a long life. Hardened steel components and bronze bearings on most wear surfaces increase the life of the cutter. 

This Challenge Machinery Spartan cutter features virtually maintenance free knife bar gibs. Gibs are devices used to control the knife position during a cut cycle assuring a consistent and accurate cut. Traditionally, these surfaces require routine lubrication because of the continuous surface friction they have with the moving knife bar. The Spartan 150 SA gibs however, are made of an advanced material called UHMW that is both strong and self-lubricating, resulting in virtually maintenance free durability.
