Simple to use, the Azco test strip cutter operates at a high-cycle rate.  The system consists of two cutting stations that have rotary shear cut blades driven by digital motors.  The first station cuts the diagnostic sheet into 10 individual cards.  The second station cuts the cards into 50 strips, each 6 mm in size.  The cut strips are then fed onto an out-feed tray.  The shear cut blades provide clean cuts and long life.  An optic eye registration sensor allows for +/- .006-in. accuracy.

A color touch screen makes it easy for the operator to use. On each screen there is a help button, which acts as a user manual for the operator. Every function can be controlled through the touch screen.   In addition, remote support is available, anywhere in the world, plugging the USB port cable into the unit so that the company can take over the machine’s settings.  Future software upgrades or other changes can be done remotely.  Also, a webcam is supplied for even more technical support.
