Keencut Evolution3 SmartFold wins top award

Keencut is proud to announce that its Evolution3 SmartFold benchtop manual cutter has received a coveted PRINTING United Alliance 2021 Pinnacle Product Award. The Evolution3 won in the category for Lasers/Routers/Cutters (4’x8’ or larger).

The 2021 Pinnacle Product Award winners are a “who’s who” of the industry, and the competition was fierce – tenths of a point separated some entries. The competition is open to all new products of PRINTING United Alliance supplier members. A highly qualified panel of judges from across the printing industry evaluated the annual contest’s 160+ entries in more than 58 categories. “The Pinnacle Product Award competition represents the best of the best among commercial hardware, software, consumables, and industrial and screen equipment,” said Ray Weiss, Director of Digital Print Programs, PRINTING United Alliance.

Everyone at Keencut is absolutely delighted with the award and the recognition it gives to the design innovation and manufacturing quality of the Evolution3 SmartFold.

The Evolution3™ SmartFold is the most advanced horizontal manual cutter for high volume wide format print shops. With faster production, less wastage and improved finish quality, it increases the performance and profitability of the user. The Evolution3 cuts everything from 13mm ( ½”) foamboard to tissue paper and features Keencut’s unique Lift-and-Hover technology for accurate, fast single-handed material alignment. Accuracy is guaranteed within 0.2mm (0.008″) of straight line for the full length of cut.

Paul Moxon, chairman of Keencut, said, “This is an outstanding achievement. The Evolution3 revolutionises manual cutting offering technical developments not found on any other range of benchtop cutters. The award is a fitting accolade for all those who have worked on the development, manufacturing, and sales of this product”
