USING SMART KNIVES FOR THE FIRST TIME
SMART KNIVES ARE INCREDIBLY EASY TO USE
But people who neglect to read instructions can make mistakes.
Remove the coloured nose cap.
It is not a protective end cap, it is a critical component.
Attempt to adjust the blade protrusion.
Doing so will cause the unit to malfunction.
Blade protrusion is factory pre-set.
More blade does NOT = MORE PRESSURE
Attempt to remove or change the blade.
When blunt return the complete unit to us for exchange.
Dismantle the unit.
Doing so will cause it to malfunction.
READ THE LABEL
Ensure that cutter offset is set correctly.
AND PLEASE REMEMBER
A sharp new blade or Smart Knife will cut with less force than the one it replaces.
Start with a low force - do a test cut.
This information is for your benefit - not ours
If you are careless we get more of your money!
Just one example
of many types we manufacture
for all modern drag knife plotters
to cut all common media types
And many unusual and difficult types
HOW THEY WORK
We preset the blade protrusion to expose a few microns more than the thickness of the range of materials the unit is designed to cut.
When your plotter is cutting correctly the coloured nose cap will run very close to the media but will not normally touch it.
If the knife force/pressure is accidentally set too high or if the media lifts because it is uneven or obstructed the nose cap will contact with the media and prevent excessive blade penetration.
Excessive blade penetration can jam media by pinning it to the cutting platen.
This is a major cause of damage to blades and cutting platens that can also cause expensive damage to plotters by straining cutting heads and other fragile mechanisms.
WHEN ACCIDENTS OCCUR SMART KNIVES CAN ELIMINATE OR SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCE THE RISK OF DAMAGE
