Lasermax Roll Systems Announces New LX Cutter and Stacker

Press release from the issuing company

Chicago, IL (September 9, 2005) - Lasermax Roll Systems announces general availability of the new LX561 Cutter and LX566 Stacker, for cutting and stacking of output from high-speed continuous digital printers. The new combination handles forms up to 18" long, in a broad range of basis weights down to 11 pound bond (40 gsm), at speeds up to 450 feet per minute, and offers a number of features designed for system flexibility as well as ease of use. The LX566 Stacker forms stacks for near-line or off-line finishing, and also has a bypass function to allow delivery of sheets to an in-line finishing device such as a folder or stitcher, for those needing flexible print on demand configurations. A reject gate is standard on the LX566 to intelligently divert incomplete jobs and blank pages. Stacks are well spaced for crisp, clean quality and for easy removal by the operator. The LX561 Cutter and LX566 Stacker have an interactive, touch-screen display that includes the LX500 Support System. This system makes the operator manual easily available on the display, and provides error detection with step-by-step instructions to guide in operator troubleshooting. Other ease of use features improve operator access and help avoid the need for tools, and the cutter blade performs up to 22 million cuts between changes. For pinless slit-merge processing of 2-up forms, the new LX562 Cutter is also now available, bringing the same process improvements to this traditional transactional document application. Lasermax Roll Systems exhibits the LX561 Cutter and LX566 Stacker at the Print '05 Show in Chicago, September 9-15. See us in booth #3580 and in partner booths around the show floor.
