Whitaker Brothers Visits the MBM/IDEAL Factory to Investigate New Line of Triumph Cutters

By Shopify API March 26, 2019

Triumph LogoWhitaker Brothers heard that Triumph was coming out with a new line of cutters, and we just couldn't wait any longer to find out more. Invited by MBM and the Krug & Priester Factory, Whitaker Brothers' Sales Manager, John Brown, traveled all the way to the rolling hills of Balingen, Germany to learn more of MBM's products and the Krug & Priester Factory. There, he gained first hand experience in their newly released Triumph cutters, and boy were we impressed! Starting from the first stage of production, this is the only manufacturer that produces 100% of its’ products. The fully integrated production assures seamless quality and precise cutters, which creates powerful results.

Made in Balingen

The strong, beautiful country, known for its rich cultural heritage and plush landscapes is home to the world renowned Krug & Priester factory in the countryside of Balingen, Germany. Balingen features the imperial 14-Burg-HohenzollernHohenzollern Castle, which is situated amongst lush, rolling hills and engulfed in an awe-inspiring, brisk sky. The castle is illuminated with majestic architecture and creates an overwhelming chill of wonder. While first walking into the Krug & Priester factory, one notices the extremely efficient, clean, sleek design of the building. Each employee radiates a mixture of honor and prestige when speaking of their role in the process of developing such high-quality, “Made in Balingen” machines. John Brown describes the facility as a “refined and efficient factory with each employee taking pride in the specific part they created.” John was astounded by the way the manufacturer was able to “make the tools, to make the parts, that make the cutters.” These are characteristics that create a truly flawless product, and with the new line of Triumph Cutters, expectations were once again exceeded. Let’s take a look at the innovative features added to the already popular Triumph Paper Cutters.

Even More User-Friendly

First, let’s discuss ease of use. The new Triumph 5255 (formerly the Triumph 4850 EP) features an improved control module, previously a keypad, that is now an electronic touch screen. Convenient and user-friendly, this touch pad controls and re-positions the power back gauge. The touch pad allows for up to 99 programs with up to 99 steps for each program to be stored into memory. As a bonus, the touch pad is multilingual, making it perfect for anyone to operate. The touch screen control panel also includes useful pre-programmed standard paper sizes and automatic memory for repeat cuts for increased efficiency. Once your measurements are entered and the back gauge is positioned properly, you are ready to cut. The Triumph 5255 now features a larger 20 ⅜” cutter (previously a smaller 18 ⅝” cutter) that enables the popular 13”x19” paper to be cut with more precision. Previous models offered push button, true two-hand operation to activate the cutting process. The new patented easy cut blade activating bars were placed in the Triumph 4815 (formerly the 4810 model) and the Triumph 4850 (formerly the 4850 D model) for independent activation of the clamp and blade. The two-step blade activating bars offer separate trigger points for the blade and the clamp. This means that the clamp can apply pressure before proceeding with the cut. These bars also require two-hand operation for maximum user safety. Two-hand operation ensures that the user’s hands are nowhere near the blade when the cutting process is activated.


Safety First

As you may know, Triumph cutters are known for their superior Safety Cutting System (SCS). In addition to two-hand operation, the IR Light Beam Safety Curtain likewise guards the user from potential harm. Located on the front table, should anything (hands, clothing, etc.) pass this light beam during cutting action, the cutter will instantly halt operation. Further safety is provided by the transparent cover on the rear table. Head over to the MBM Corporation to learn more about the Safety Cutting System in detail.

Increased Precision


Not everyone works with large format pieces that require cutting. Some applications require accurate cutting for small format pieces. The two side lays, each on the front and rear tables, help to improve accuracy while cutting. The precise backgauge also allows for exact positioning of your stacks, regardless of the size. Speaking of accuracy, bright LEDs display an optical cutting line to show exactly where the cut will be performed. If the cutting mark is inaccurate, simply realign to achieve a precise cut. The electronic hand wheel is available for those who’d prefer to manually adjust the backgauge. This hand wheel offers infinitely variable speed control, for slow or fast control and re-positioning.


Efficient Maintenance

The cutting blade and cutting sticks can be changed from the outside of these units, without the hassle of removing machine covers. The Solingen steel blade requires the use of the blade changing tool, which covers the cutting edge of the blade for user protection. However, this vital tool can easily be lost in any print shop, warehouse, or production area. Triumph has this answer to this vanishing act. A practical hook-in tool holder is positioned on the back table and keeps all necessary tools for blade change and service jobs within reach. Never lose the knife changing tool again!

Quality Cutters

Starting from the first stages of production, these powerful machines are constructed with the highest quality materials by employees who take immense pride in each task to develop a high class cutter. The German engineered hardware coupled with the innovative  technology creates a truly flawless product that only gets better and better. From the employee culture to the highly efficient and effective machines, the new Triumph cutters prove to undoubtedly be cutting edge. In addition, MBM developed a new suffix system for when searching for your new cutter. Review the visual below to get a grasp on what each new suffix means.
