microcut can be installed on any type of guillotine paper cutter that uses a leadscrew for backgauge movement. Other methods of backgauge movement, such as chain or cable drive, cannot assure the accuracy or positioning speed. In these cases it is suggested that either a leadscrew kit be installed or that the machine be replaced.
Important safety note microcut backguage control systems are not intended to control the knife or the clamp on the paper cutter. Anything dealing with the clamp or knife is not to be tampered with or adjusted during the installation or operation of microcut control systems with the exception of a unit installed with a B-65 system. Any alteration to the knife or clamp safeties, circuits, or operation, or any installation technique that compromises the safety of anyone working on or around the machine is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN. Guarding may need to be altered or added to offer proper protection when microcut parts and assemblies are added to the machine. Never operate the machine until all guarding is complete. All moving parts and hazards must be covered in such a way as to prevent accidental contact of any sort. Any nip, draw-in, crush, or shearing hazard must be evaluated and eliminated.
