The Canvey Island-based firm’s two existing guillotines had both started to display problems at the same time, leading it to buy a new machine from a competitor, which broke down after one month’s use. The clutch then went on a second replacement machine and both devices then failed again after fixing.
Design4Print managing director Rod Hall approached Morgana, which recommended the Mohr range to the business.
“We have worked with Morgana for many years and so a call to them was placed. We needed a quality guillotine that wouldn’t let us down,” he said.
Installed in December, the Mohr D66 is a hydraulic guillotine that provides cutting widths of 670mm.
Frequently used cutting sequences can be stored in the machine's memory, which can hold up to 198 separate programs that can be adapted at any time. The feeding depth of the unit is 670mm while the pile height is up to 80mm.
“This is a well built, solid looking, proper guillotine. Morgana were able to deliver and install the unit inside a week, and we couldn’t be happier with the results,” added Hall.
The KB2000S perfect binder was installed at the same time as the guillotine to assist the company with its NCR work.
“We had been using one of these for some 15 years. It was beginning to show signs of age. We use it mostly for NCR sets. It saves a lot of handwork,” said Hall.
