Overview

Perfect for quick-print and on-demand workflow levels, the Spartan 185SA semi-automatic paper cutter by Challenge Machinery combines a number of features to offer the highest production speeds, easy set-ups and safe use. A speed averaging about 2.6 seconds per cut makes this electric paper cutter fast and efficient enough to meet the strict demands of your client's jobs, as well as internal jobs. The 185SA cutter has unique "floating fingers" that prevent any paper from being trapped beneath the back gauge, eliminating the hassle of jams. It also features maintenance-free knife bar gibs that require no lubrication and are extremely wear resistant, virtually eliminating the replacement of expensive knife holders. A very bright red LED cutting line indicates exactly where the blade will hit your paper, offering you a precise and clear view of the final cut location. The knife height can be adjusted for different jobs without taking apart the machine with a simple adjustment knob and allen key. The rear table is covered with a permanent clear safety shield while the front safety shield will prevent the machine from running while open, and will automatically pop-up after each cut, eliminating that previously manual step. The paper clamp is controlled by the wheel on the top of the machine, so you can choose the best pressure for even sensitive paper types. The wheel on the front of the machine controls the back gauge, while a digital read-out screen provides measurements so you can set the machine easily to your exact specifications. Cutting is only possible when both cut buttons are pressed at the same time, offering even further safety for your users. With the capability to cut paper up to 17 ½" wide, and stacks up to 3" thick, the 185SA Spartan cutter is a great choice to buy online. Included with your purchase is a stand with rolling castors, two high speed steel knifes, three cutting sticks, one jogging block aid, a tool kit and a knife change safety holder.

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.
