The key to improving cutting machine efficiency is simple. Create a single cut program which covers all lifts of a run, rather than a shorter program that is repeated for each lift. This not only increases speed and accuracy, it allows for Scissor Hands unique ability to keep all part of an order together. No more playing match game or cross shipping!
Scissor Hands removes training barriers which make cutting traditionally a journeyman’s job. The instructive, touch-screen animations and the elimination of programming reduce training for new operators from months (i.e. how to make and use cut programs) to hours (i.e. an overview of safety features and SOP). New operators can see which direction to load and rotate the lift by watching the animations.
With Scissor Hands advanced cutting optimization, there are less blade cycles for each job. This means less touching and moving the work with jobs finished in less time. Scissor Hands pattern matching algorithms also mean that jobs and sections of jobs actually get ganged together to be cut faster together. These are just some of the ways that Scissor Hands increases throughput.
Cloud-based software maximizes print production without losing floor space. Scissor Hands is headache free. Simple to install and even simpler to run. Scissor Hands also has management reporting to allow analysis of cutting by machine, operator or job.
