I read a post here several months ago, about die cutting machines.
This is what I understood:
The Accucut roller sistem (Mark IV and GrandeMark) is better than the Ellison lever system (Ellison Prestige Pro) because the die may move during the process of applying pressure, and in the roller system, pressure is compensated and die does not move.
And this is important in this machine if you use it to cut illustrated materials, because those machines are not intended to be used in boardgame exclusively, but in any other not illustrated materials where precission is not so important.
But recently I have found a third desktop machine and a different system. There is a tray that moves under the roller.
I wondered if this is even better than the other machines, because this one is more expensive and is used to make the protos for the big machines and test the dies.
The company is called Paperfox, and the machine is called H500A. Is the desktop model. The other ones come with legs.
This is the machine:
It cuts up to A4 size. I have received an offer to buy one for over 700€ in my country with free shipping.
The Grande Mark machine is about 600$ and must ship from USA to Spain (must add to price). And I am not sure if I can cut an A4 with it with total precission.
And more, I have seen that the Accucut web sells pressure roller replacement. ¿How often must the pressure roller be replaced?
Any opinion about the paperfox system precission?
Anyone have tried the H500A?
Thanks for your answers. Any opinion would be helpful.
