looking at a Graphic Whizard PT 8336SCC Slitter, Cutter, Creaser for digital post print bindery
Was wondering if anyone has a GW or a slitter/cut/creaser and is it worthwhile - we have a programmable cutter but this looks more efficient
just asking

We have the MBM AeroCut Prime slitter/cutter/creaser. I've also worked with the Duplo line. Both work great. Haven't had a chance to use the GW line. Either way, a slitter/cutter/creaser (SCC) is definitely a worthwhile investment, especially if you do a lot of business cards. You can just load the sheets, press start, and it does all the work. Also, having a job creased and cut in the same pass is a huge time saver. We'll setup a job and walk away to do other stuff and just check back every so often...that's where the real productivity comes in to play. Keep in mind that any SCC on the market is not ideal for lighter weight stock. It will just wrap up in the rollers. Anything less than 100# gloss text can be problematic.

All our Full bleed postcard work goes on the GW 335SCC, we load and walk away and get other jobs done. With the machine now over 5 years old it is starting to need new parts, that is getting expensive compared to a cutter, but this saves you time in labor.

Thanks for your feedback - we really need it for creasing and perfing small jobs, slitting is a bonus

We do use it for scoring when its the right job for it. We got the microperf kits for it but found them to be more of a pain then it was worth to get text paper to feed through. We use it 99% for cover stocks.
