How to Purchase This Item:

The Challenge Titan 230 Paper Cutter is built with a solid cast iron and steel frame for maximum durability. The rubbing components are made of ultra high molecular weight plastics. This means the gib surfaces, composite bushings, and a one-inch-thick solid tool aluminum table require almost no maintenance for years of trouble-free operation. This is the standard edition of the Titan 230. The Challenge Titan 230 TC has the touch control screen.

The Titan 230 meets the toughest safety standards in the industry today. Category 4 light safety curtains, enclosed rear table, two-hand timed non-repeat cut buttons and a knife safety latch contribute to Challenge's UL and CE certification.

The intuitive menu-driven controller allows variable mode data entry with up to 99 jobs / 9,801 total cut position storage. Optional electronic clamp pressure control further reduces waste. Machine self-diagnostics and error indication walk the operator through any potential difficulties. 

Titan Controller Operator Screen

The basic operation panel is very functional and definitely gets the job done. Programs can be written by recording a cut cycle or entering steps manually. The operator has access to all of the standard features and error reporting without the cost of a more complex control panel. If you need a more advanced controller the Titan 230 TC is available with the full-color, touch-screen TC computer built in.
