Ideal 4860 guillotine

The IDEAL 4860 guillotine is the high-end model in the compact IDEAL range of Paper Guillotines.  The IDEAL 4860 builds on the popular IDEAL 4855 Guillotine with the incorporation of Infra-Red (IR) safety curtains to improve productivity by 20% over the standard transparent guarded IDEAL 4855.  With a cut range from 475mm (SRA3) cutting length to 30mm and a maximum 80 mm cutting height.

The IDEAL 4860 offers electro-mechanical drive of the cutting blade and automatic clamping with the added benefit of fully programmable back gauge positioning via the integrated touch screen display.  All features included into a simple to operate guillotine that comes complete with stand and storage space.

LED cut indication lights provide a clear view of the cut line where the blade will strike.  Ideal for customers wishing to use registration marks as their guide when completing digital projects.
IDEAL’S safety cutting system (SCS) is employed to ensure absolute reliability and safety in cutting. Side lays make sure that even the smallest piles are positioned exactly for accurate cutting.

Why Buy the IDEAL 4860 Guillotine?

The IDEAL 4860 being the flagship model in the compact range is a feature rich and highly productive small format guillotine that is packed with professional features.   The IDEAL 4860 guillotine is accurate with both an optical cut line indicator and an electronically controlled back gauge with infinitely variable back gauge control wheel.

Safety is enhanced with the new Easy-Cut Paddle Activation Bars with true two-handed operation and the addition of the IR curtain increases productivity by 20% over the traditional guarded models.

If space is limited the IDEAL 4860 only requires one square meter of floor space and is the quickest machine in its class. Its ergonomic design makes it easy to use for longer periods as everything is within easy reach, whilst operation is incredibly quiet for such a powerful guillotine. The inclusion of a 99 Program memory with repeat cut function and auto eject makes lists of sizes and numbers a thing of the past. You can now recall a job in seconds and finish the entire cut sequence within minutes.
