Safety Operation Precautions
WARNING for Operation
This machine must be operated by just one person at a time.
Various safety devices are installed on this machine. If any of these are bypassed or
removed, this may cause severe accident and personal injury.
Each operator should be familiar with the safety instructions, be aware of the potential
dangers, and have sufficient knowledge of how to manage an accident. Anyone who
does not have this training should not operate the machine.
Before starting the machine, be sure to perform the checks described in Chapter 2:
Safety Checks. When loading the sheets on the table and setting the sheet position, get
your foot off from the foot pedal.
CAUTION for Operation
Do not cut anything besides paper. This may damage the machine.
If you turn the power switch Off, wait 10 seconds or more before turning it On again.
Do not get on, or step on the foot pedal with great force. The machine may be damaged.
CAUTION for Maintenance
Do not apply too much grease. Filled grease may stain the paper.
III
CAUTION for Installation
Make sure to connect the ground wire.
Ground Terminal
Make sure to connect
the accessory ground
wire.
If the ground wire is
not connected, the letters on the guide window may not appear
correctly.
Space Required for Installation
As the electrical parts are installed on the lower left of the machine, repair work may be done from the
right side. Allow about 600 to 700 mm (23.7 to 27.6") on the left side of the machine if it is possible.
In addition, when you adjust the knife angle, you need to insert the tool into the machine from the left
side. Allow about 200 mm (7.9”) on the left side.
Allow about 100 to 200 mm (4 to 7.9”) on the right side and the rear.
Antivibration Cushion
If you use the antivibration cushions, place the cushions under the four corners of the machine. In addition, place the supplied wedges under the machine to keep the machine in a horizontal position.

In the following steps, if the machine does not
operate as explained “the machine is OK”,
stop the check immediately.
Press both cutting buttons continuously.
- The cutting process is as follows:
1. The clamp lowers.
Turn on the power switch.
2. The knife lowers.
- When the initialization is completed, the current position value (=400.0) appears.
3. The knife lifts.

after the cutting process.
Cutting Buttons
Press only left cutting button continuously.
- If the clamp and the knife do not move, the
machine is OK.
Press only right cutting button continuously.
- If the clamp and the knife do not move, the
machine is OK.
Press left cutting button first and
then press right cutting button more
than 0.5 seconds later.
- If the clamp and the knife do not move, the
machine is OK.
- When the cutting process is completed, the
clamp and the knife stop at the upper limit
and do not move. If the machine does not
start the next cutting process, the machine is
OK.
Press both cutting buttons, and
then release one of them when the
cutting process starts.
- If the clamp and the knife stop when releasing
one of your hands, the machine is OK.
- Also check by releasing another hand.
- Press both cutting buttons again. The clamp
and the knife will return to the starting position.
If the knife is at the lower limit, the
machine does not stop even if releasing
one of your hands.
Instead, the knife lifts and then the
clamp lifts.
If the knife is not at the upper limit (=
the knife is in the middle position), the
motor reverses when one of the cutting
buttons are pressed and another one is
pressed more than 0.5 seconds later.
- Also press the cutting buttons in the reverse
order and if the clamp and the knife do not
move, the machine is OK.

Check the Cutting Buttons
- If the clamp and the knife move in this order,
the machine is OK.
2-3 Check the Beam Light Sensors
Turn on the power switch.
Press both cutting buttons.
- When the initialization is completed, the current position value (=400.0) appears.
- Continue to press the cutting buttons while the

2-5 Check the Foot Pedal
In the following steps, if the machine does not
operate as explained “the machine is OK”,
stop the check immediately.
The foot pedal is used for the following purpose.
1. To check the cutting position
The cutting position can be checked before
actual cut by stepping on the foot pedal and
lowering the clamp.
2. Sheet Press
Swelled or curled sheets can be cut more
accurately by stepping on the foot pedal and
pressing them by the clamp. (The sheets can
be cut by pressing the cutting buttons while
stepping on the foot pedal.)
Step on the foot pedal slowly.
- If the clamp lowers smoothly, the machine is
OK.
CAUTION
Do not get on, or step on the foot
pedal with great force. The machine
may be damaged.
Release the foot pedal.
- If the clamp lifts to the upper limit, the machine
is OK.

Operation Procedures
This chapter explains four cutting operation procedures, compression
operation, program and how to indicate the counter.
3-1 Cutting Operation on the Cutting Line
Align the desired cutting position
with the cutting line.
Press both cutting buttons at the
same time and keep pressing them.
- Align the desired cutting position with the cutting line by pressing the backgauge forward
button.
- The cutting operation starts.
- Release your hands from the cutting buttons
when the knife returns to the upper limit.
Align the cutting position by moving the
backgauge forward.
If the backgauge is moved backward, the
sheets should be aligned with the backgauge every time.
Cutting Buttons
The cutting position can be checked also
by stepping on the foot pedal and lowering the clamp.

Place the sheets.
- The maximum cutting height is 60 mm (2.36”).
- Arrange the sheets by aligning them with the
backgauge and side guide.
Do not pile the narrow sheets high.
Place the sheets on the other side so that
the clamp does not incline widely.
- Press both cutting buttons at the
same time. If they are not pressed
within 0.5 seconds, the machine does
not operate.
- If your hand is released from one of
the cutting buttons while the knife is
lowering toward the lower limit, the
knife stops at that position.
- Release your hands from the cutting
buttons when the cutting operation is
completed. The secondary cutting
operation dose not start even if pressing them continuously after the cutting process.
The clamp and the knife move as follows
during the cutting operation.

moves backward for positioning:
(Example)
If the sheet is cut to 200.0 mm (11.000”)
and next cut to 300.0 mm (14.000”),
the backgauge moves backward to the
position of 307.0 mm (14.275”) first, and
then moves forward to the position of
300.0 mm (14.000”) and stops.
The backgauge moves in this way to
ensure the accurate cutting length. The
backgauge is always positioned by moving forward.

Cutting Operation by Programmed Value
This section explains the cutting operation
performed following the programmed process.
When performing the same cutting process
repeatedly, or performing a complicated
cutting process, input each value of the
process in order beforehand, so that the
backgauge automatically moves into the
position for each step and makes the operation efficient.
Refer to “3-6 How to Program” for the programing and correcting the program.

Push-Out:
“Push-out” means to move the cut
sheets forward before the following process by moving the backgauge forward.
The push-out length of this machine is 50
mm (2”). However, if the cutting length is
smaller than 90 mm (3.575”), the backgauge pushes out the sheets to the position of 40 mm (1.575”).
