Different types of guillotines: chose your favourite one!

 

A Guillotine is very useful and sometimes indispensable in graphic works. Being such a useful tool, today there are many Italians who want to take it home. It can be used at work, even in small offices, or at home (to obtain photographs, participation cards, invitations). Here is some information that may be useful in choosing the cutter.

Guillotines’ features

Before finding out how to choose a cutter, it is time to understand exactly what it looks like and how it works. In reality, its simple image would be enough to make you understand immediately which instrument you are talking about. Having said that, however, it will be interesting to understand how it is structured and how it works. We begin, therefore, from its definition: this device provides you with the possibility to make a multitude of geometric and non-geometric cuts, and to do it with millimeter precision and in complete safety. In aesthetic terms the cutter resembles a tray, equipped with a ruler for taking measurements and a blade for making the cut. In reality, however, there are different types.

It may be useful for a wide range of paper cutting operations. You could, for example, use this machinery to define a certain graphic project that you have in the pipeline, or simply use it to shape a poster, an illustration or a flyer. From the information brochures, up to any other paper material, the potential offered by a machine of this type is truly infinite. On the other hand, as we said above, it is good to choose it keeping in mind the importance not only of its precision in cutting, but also of its safety.

An example?

The choice of a product always depends on the purpose you have, and therefore on the use you want to make of it. Meanwhile, there are different types of blades, some of which have been designed for specific sized sheets.
