Overview

The Challenge Machinery Spartan 185A automatic paper cutter offers an extremely powerful and safe production cutting machine, all encased in a sleek design. A great addition for a quick-print shop, copy center, professional office and other on-demand facilities, the 185 Spartan cutter can power through stacks up to 17 ½" wide and 3" thick. The automatic clamp is activated after you press the dual-hand cut buttons, removing the manual step associated with most semi-automatic cutters of rotating a wheel to depress it. The overall cutting cycle with the clamp and blade takes only about 3.6 seconds, so there is little down time. In addition to automatic clamping, after the cutting cycle is completed the front safety shield will automatically open, getting you to your next cut quickly and efficiently. The machine cannot clamp or cut when the safety shield is in the "up" position and the back shield is mounted permanently closed. In addition, the two-handed activation means there is no chance an operator's hands can be on the table during the cutting cycle. Holding true to the Challenge Machinery Company name, the Spartan 185A cutter has been manufactured to these high safety standards, to help ensure there are no accidents. On the front of the machine is a wheel that controls the back gauge location, displaying the exact measurement on a screen while also indicating the precise cut location with an LED optical cutting line.In addition to safety and convenience, the 185A cutter offers a unique knife bar gib, which requires no lubrication or maintenance, but ensures a longer life for your knife holder. If you are ready to speed up production with an efficient and safe cutter, then consider buying the Challenge Spartan 185A automatic paper cutter online. When you buy this durable cutting machine, you receive a free stand with rolling castors, two high speed steel knives, three cutting sticks, one tool kit, one knife change safety holder and one jogging block tool.

Holding true to the Challenge tradition, the Spartan 185-A,is engineered and manufactured to the highest of safety standards available in the world. Safety shields cover the front and rear tables.

  • Independent Clamping Function: Allows for a "clamp only" operation
  • Manual Backgauge Control: Hand Wheel Control
  • LED Digital Backgauge Position Indicator: With ±0.01” (±0.1mm) backgauge accuracy - provides for easier operator interface, higher productivity, and easier repeatable accuracy than a hard to read indicator on a scale as is used with other brands.
  • Laser Red LED Cut Line Light: produces a bright easy to see cut line.
  • Safe: two-hand push button controls and front and rear table safety shields.
  • Auto-Releasing Front Safety Shield: automatically pops open after each cut cycle is completed. This unique benefit eliminates the need for the operator to manually lift the front shield in order to retrieve or adjust the stock after a cut providing increased productivity and operator ease-of-use.
  • Durable: Heavy-Duty steel, cast iron, and cast aluminum construction gives the cutter "Challenge" durability.
  • Maintenance Free: the LED cut-line light and UHMW Gibs result in the SPARTAN 185 being virtually maintenance-free with lifetime durability. UHMW Gibs on front and back of knife bar require zero maintenance and have lifetime durability. It also eliminates lubricant on knife bar that can spoil stock.

The Spartan 185 series Electric Cutters by Challenge Machinery are perfect for quick-print and on-demand businesses that value speed, safety, efficiency, and quality. The series includes three models to choose from: The Spartan 185S-A Semi-Automatic, the 185-A Automatic, or the 185-AEP Automatic and programmable cutter.

All three of these guillotine-style automatic cutters benefit from the following features: A “floating fingers” push bar that prevents paper from being trabbed beneath the back gauge. Exclusive maintenance-free knive bar gibs that are highly wear resistant. A bright LED cutting line that shows you exactly where the blade will hit your stack. External knife height adjustments for safe and easy modifications. A see-through enclosed rear table for operator visibility safety. And more…

The 185SA Semi-Automatic model features a manual clamping mechanism controlled by a hand wheel on the top of the machine. The back gauge control is adjusted by rotating wheels on the front of the machine. The 185A automatic model features an automatic clamp that depresses when you activate the blades, eliminating that manual step. The back gauge is still controlled with a hand wheel on the front of the machine. Both the 185SA and 185A feature an easy-to-read LCD digital displays that will show you imperial or metric measurements of the back gauge position as it moves.

The 185AEP has a digital hand wheel that allows for swift and simple maneuvering of the back gauge into position for increased productivity. It provides intuitive job programming for quick recall of common jobs, and machine diagnostics – both of which make it simple for even the most novice user to work with the machine.

The Spartan 185 Series Cutters can power through stacks up to 3” thick and 17 ½" wide, as fast as 2.6 seconds per cycle, depending on the model.

To keep your operator protected, they feature an auto-releasing tilt shield on the front table. When open, the clamp and blade cannot be activated, so it is impossible for your users’ hands to be near the mechanisms. The two-hand activation buttons also means that your operator cannot even leave a hand on the table while cutting.
