by admin on October 8, 2012

The perfect mat cutter for professional framers is the Valiani Libra CMC which is born to assist the user with excellent performance and extreme precision. This machine is targeted at companies that have medium volume production who require a reliable and robust machine.

Cutting Heads

The Libra is equipped with 2 independent head holders and does not need to stop between different plotting processes and multiple combination cuts, which are all possible among all of the i-heads. The mat cutter can work on two different workstations or on a single oversized (1.9m) workstation which allows the user to process special or oversized materials.

With the large workstation, combined with a new button clamping system, not only provides incomparable working flexibility over a wide range of materials but also provides the user with unparalleled accuracy and flexibility to meet todays production challenges.

Dual Interchangeable Heads
There are two interchangeable heads and manual blade depth adjustment with increments of just 0.1mm, it provides much better quality control when working with various materials with different thicknesses. The maximum thickness is 5mm.

There are a range of cutting heads that can be attached to the machine such as the cord, 45˚ bevel, 40˚ bevel, embossing, plastic creasing, matboard/foamboard creasing, perforation and a pen head.

This CMC machine is about as far away from the Logan Graphics 450-1 40″ Artist Elite Mat Cutter, Straight or Bevel Cuts but you can still cut acceptable mats if you are just a hobby framer with a basic manual mat cutting tool.
