Titan 230 Programmable Paper Cutter Product Overview

The Titan series of paper cutters continue the Challenge tradition of innovation, delivering large cutter features and sophisticated yet easy to use controls in convenient smaller format sizes. The Titan 230 features a 23”/58.4 cm cutting width.

As the most experienced manufacturer of paper cutters in the world (since 1887), Challenge is well known for building machines that last. The Titan’s solid cast iron and steel construction provides years of quality cutting. The solid one inch thick metal tables provide a strong work surface necessary in a production environment.

Challenge cutters are made to the highest safety standards in the market. Standard safety features include a light curtain system and a dedicated push-out button to move stock forward from under the clamp and knife to prevent exposure in the cutting area. The fully enclosed rear table and a table slot cover guard against potential pinch points. All Titan cutters ar e UL and cUL listed and meet CE and ANSI r equirements.

The fully programmable Titans are accurate to within +/- 0.002” (0.05mm). For manual adjustments, the line-light indicator projects onto the stock to quickly allow for visual alignment. A low-pressure foot pedal clamping system provides safe control of the clamp when pre-cut clamping is needed, such as holding slick stock in place or verifying cut position.
