Affordable Stack Paper Cutter Alternatives

If you print, manufacture or handle hundreds to thousands of sheets of paper per day, chances are you’re going to need a pretty nice paper cutter. There are several highly reputable manufacturers out there that make some top-notch cutters. Brands include MBM Triumph by Ideal, Dahle and many others. One you may not be aware of, or perhaps may have considered, is Intelli-Cut (found here).

Intelli-Cut stack paper cutters are designed for cutting hundreds of sheets of paper in a single pass. They use a specially designed handle, tough gears and a razor-sharp guillotine-like blade to slice through paper. Many of these cutters are even capable of cutting an entire ream of paper. Intelli-Cut stack paper cutters range from manually operated to electric powered designs. We have had customers use these cutters to cut chipboard, card stock, standard paper and much more.

While there are currently about 16 different Intelli-Cut cutters out there, I would like to highlight two of our customer favorites.

Intelli-Cut 530D Stack Paper CutterIntelli-Cut 530D (found here) – This paper cutter is extremely popular because of its price and capabilities. Using this cutter is fairly easy. First off you need to adjust the backstop, which is manually adjusted. This is done by turning the hand crank located on the front of the machine. Clockwise brings the backstop closer and counterclockwise takes it back. You can tell where the backstop is located thanks to a digital display located on the front of the machine. If you need your paper to be 5″ long, set the backstop to 5″. It’s that easy.

Once you have made your adjustments, you can place your paper inside the cutter. Bring down the clear Plexiglas safety cover, pull the chrome-plated clamp lever down, flip the cutting safety lever and bring down the cutting arm. While this may seem like a lot of steps, the process is remarkably easy to do and will probably only take you a few minutes. This cutter has a 17″ wide cutting width and can cut up to 1 ½” of paper at a time. It also features an optical cutting line that makes it easy to determine exactly where the blade will make its cut. This cutter is very similar in operation to the Tamerica GuilloMax Plus and the MBM Triumph 4305.

Intelli-Cut 550MS Electric Stack Paper CutterIntelli-Cut 550MS (found here)– This stack cutter is a semi-automatic machine. While the clamping mechanism and the clamp are electric powered, the backstop is still manually adjusted. Simply adjust the backstop to where you want the cut to occur and insert your paper. Once the paper is in place, press a button to bring down the clamp and blade. In just seconds you will cut through 1 ½” of paper. This cutter features durable metal construction, an optical cutting line and a safety blade change tool. This cutter is perfect for print shops, copy centers and other businesses that need to cut paper.

One thing all of our Intelli-Cut paper cutters have in common is safety. These cutters feature clear plastic guards that protect you from harm. Electric cutters feature safety keys and buttons while manual cutters require a safety switch be flipped before the blade can be brought down. Stands are available for each of these cutters and are an optional accessory.

As mentioned earlier, we offer about 16 different Intelli-Cut models (found here). Please stop by and check them out. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call one of our Paper Cutter Specialists at 1-800-658-8788.
