VR Cut is Here!

VRCut Software

TWO MODULES, ONE INTEGRATED WORKFLOW:

The VRCut solution consists of two modules that work together. The Impose module creates PDF documents formatted specifically to work with the VRCut Controller module. The Controller module connects directly to the Triumph cutter moving the back gauge and visually guiding operators through the cutting sequence.

VRCUT IMPOSE

The VRCut Impose module is a standalone imposition software that transforms your artwork into PDFs laid out specifically for optimized cutting on the VRCut enabled Triumph cutter. The software places a template barcode and innovative visual markers that enable an automated cutting process. Consolidate your workflows by taking advantage of the software’s data merge feature.

VRCUT CONTROLLER

The VRCut Controller module connects directly to your Triumph cutter for automatic back gauge movement and provides a step-by-step visual interface. The operator simply scans the document barcode to load the corresponding template and artwork to start the job. The software gives the operator visual indication of paper orientation, paper rotation between cuts, when to discard scraps, and how to process cut sheets. This first of its kind software simplifies the task of cutting, which allows operators with all levels of experience to cut with confidence!

DB side3 LOW Web

The STERLING DIGIBINDER has created a new standard for on demand perfect binders. Never has a perfect binding machine been able to create books of such quality with automatic set up at such an affordable price. It has set the bar high for all perfect binders to follow.

The DIGIBINDER is a completely self-adjusting perfect binder. The pneumatic clamp and nipper adjust automatically. A compressor is included. Bind a thin book, then a thick book, without any adjustments whatsoever. Bind two sheets to two and a quarter inches thick. The unique, heavy duty roughing blade allows for the binding of offset stock, coated stock, and stock with oil based or wax based inks.

Twin glue rollers ensure an even glue application as does a third, metering roller to smooth out the glue. The machine side glues for hinge covers and even creates a light hinge due to the nipper pressure, which is adjustable. Bind perfectly square backed books or pads with our glue binders.
