Fotoba cutter matches Xerox Memjet printer

Fotoba has worked with Xerox to customise its FHS42 Cutter so that it can work inline with the Xerox IPJ2000 wide format printer. This printer uses Memjet printheads to produce wide format graphics at great speed but needs a trimming system that can keep up with it. The FHS42 can synchronise with the printer at a speed of 420 sqm/hr. It works with the same range of media that the printer takes, including matte coated, photo gloss, satin, blueback and backlit/stoplight films.

The Fotoba cutter has one horizontal and up to four vertical trimming blades for 1-, 2-, or 3-up full-bleed finishing. The system reads embedded crop marks on each print to align and continuously adjust its cutting blocks to deliver cuts accurate to 1 millimeter. It uses self-sharpening blades for minimal maintenance.

It’s available through the Xerox sales channel, as an option for new printers and a retrofit for existing models.

I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
