To cut a material precisely might seem a simple task. But if you are tasked to do it several hundred times on rough materials then this would pose as a great challenge for you. Thankfully, a cut machine has been invented in order to help you with the task. There are different types of cut machine and one of these is the paper cut machine.
When handling a cut machine, it is important to bear in mind the following five basic guides in cutting:
- Ensure your safety first.
- Maintain your tools and equipments in good working condition.
- Practice with the machinery and keep your place tidy.
- Be careful to read all the instructions and follow then thoroughly.
- For your repetitive operations, you must be able to create a pattern or a standard in order to maintain pace and order.
When given the material to cut, you need to figure out how many sheets you will be making. You can do this by simple division and multiplication. Once you get the total sheet, you need now to determine the number of spoilage.
After the operator has made the necessary calculations and paper works, he may now proceed in cutting. To prevent friction between the cutter bed and the paper itself, you need to clean the cutter bed regularly, coat it with wax and polish it. Be reminded not to jog against the back gauge. You may need to adjust the back gauge and you can do this by moving it towards the operator. When you will be making several cuts with the same dimension and material, be sure to lock the back gauge using the locking handle.
The operator should have an organized procedure in cutting the materials in order to be efficient. Speed is crucial when operating therefore getting organized should be a priority for operators. The important steps involved in paper cutting is removing the sheets from the cut machine and stacking it in a corner, ready for transfer to another receiving area. Secure tables with enough surfaces or trucks to carry the load so that you can eliminate unnecessary handling of paper sheets. Every pile of paper should be neatly stacked in a corner so that this will not capsize and fall to the floor. Label them accordingly also.
There are a lot of factors to be considered when you want your cutting to be very precise and accurate. You need to consider a very sharp knife, the clamp pressure must be right and consider the lift when done cutting so that the paper will not be strained. If you want to improve the manner of your cut, you need to be precise on the stated factors.
