Pro Great for production runs
There are two main things you need in large production runs: speed and repeatability. This machine has a good maximum cutting speed of 35-inches/s, which is more than enough for home business applications. An automatic paneling feature takes he repeatability to a whole new level. It allows the machine to separate multiple long jobs into smaller blocks and cut them individually. This feature highly improves accuracy and media tracking.
