Akiles vs Lassco Corner Rounders

Corner Rounders from ABC OfficeAre you shopping around for a corner rounder? If so, you have probably come across models by Akiles and Lassco. Both of these brands are the kings of the commercial corner rounding world. So which of these two brands is best?

We currently offer about 10 different models of corner rounders, with 4 being especially popular with our customers. These corner rounders are:

  1. Lassco CR-20
  2. Lassco CR-50B
  3. Akiles Diamond-1
  4. Akiles Diamond-5

For a direct comparison, I would consider the Lassco CR-20 and Akile Diamond-1 to be on the same level. They both cut about ½”, with the Diamond-1 cutting just a few less sheets at a time. They are both of a similar build quality and both are very popular with our customers.

I would have to say that the CR-20 has a slight leg up simply because I personally think the cutting dies on the CR-20 are slightly easier to change out. Ultimately, I think they are both great corner rounders.

The CR-50B is very similar to the CR-20, simply with a larger table area for larger documents and a slightly more elongated handle than the CR-20.

As far as electric corner rounders are concerned, you aren’t going to find anything better than the Akiles Diamond 5 corner rounder. That thing is a beast and is perfect for high-volume corner rounding.

So in answer to my original question, “which of the two brands is best?” I would have to say it is a dead heat. Both Akiles and Lassco make high quality stuff and equipment from both companies should last for years.
