Another popular feature is the Safety Cutting System (SCS) which protect all users during cutting and routine maintenance of the triumph cutter. This safety features includes safety guards, main switch and safety lock key, two hand operation, disk brake for instant blade stop, and blade depth adjustment from outside of the machine. With all of these traits, it’s easy to see why the Triumph line hosts the top selling cutting units nationwide.
Comparing the 4850 and 5255
The Triumph 4850 and 5255 Paper Cutters are the two top selling paper cutters available today. While at first glance, they might seem visually similar, the machines both have different features that will benefit customers in different ways.
The biggest difference between the two models is the width of the cutting knives.The 4850 uses a cutting knife that is 16 ⅞ inches, while the 5255 model hosts a cutting knife measuring in at 20 ⅜ inches. The difference in width makes the 5255 the perfect choice for digital printing jobs, since the measurements of those papers are typically 13” x 19”.
Unlike the 4850, the 5255 hosts an easy to use digital touch pad that tells the user exactly where the back gauge is set. It has the ability to program up to 99 jobs. When you program a job, you have the ability to set up to 99 cuts for each job. When selecting a job, the display will show you at what measurement the cut is occurring for each step. This gives the user the ability to automate frequently used jobs quickly, saving you time.
One of the biggest perks that these two Triumph cutters have is the ability to fit through a single door. Many stores and businesses do not have a large two front door opening. The 4850 and 5255 are shipped with dimensions that make it fit through a single door, with no special accommodations needed. Another outstanding feature of these two machines is the cutting height. The machines allow for paper stacks up to 3” in height to be cut at one time. To make sure your cuts are accurate, both models also come with an LED light to show exactly where the knife will hit the paper. The 4850 and 5255 both also have the option to add on side tables if your work space requires it.
