Valiani Astra 120 Manual Mount Cutter
The Astra 120 is available in cutting capabilities of 1250mm (49”) and cuts mats of varying thickness. The machine, as standard, is supplied with magnetic stops, measuring stops, easy to use blade holder and an extension arm.
Innovative Italian Design
The cutting head slides on four ball bearings which glide on two sturdy durable tempered steel tracks that are constantly cleaned by two small brushes. This reduces wear and helps keep the cutting motion smooth and straight – even with heavy use. The magnetic stop is a revolutionary Valiani feature, making routine cutting quicker and more consistent. The cutting head stop scale eliminates the necessity of resetting the start of cut dimension stop for each side, since the stop guide automatically references to the external mat size and maintains the same border size. The magnetic stop will allow you to increase production rates – without over or undercutting.
Fully Loaded – Right out of the box
The Astra is fully accessorized in its standard version – supplied with precision magnetic stops, integrated clamp lifting lever, precision blade-holding cartridges, and a right-side extension arm for board sizing. Don’t pay extra for the features you need most!
The most-copied manual mat cutter, ever.
The Valiani Astra 120/150 mat cutter has several features that have been copied by other manufacturers over the years, but never duplicated as a complete system. A classic, simple and supremely reliable machine, the Astra was among the first machines to use a warp-free aluminium base, and introduced the industry’s first magnetic stops
Micro-adjustable Blade Cartridges
Another industry first – the bevel and straight (90°) blade holders are manufactured using high precision machining technology. The rigid, pointed-tip blade is precisely positioned in the cartridge, with a simple micro-adjustable depth adjustment screw to reduce or increase depth and ensure a perfectly straight “hook-free” cut at all times. The Astra allows you to quickly and consistently set blade depth for mats of varying thicknesses; from the thinnest foil mat on up to 8-ply (3.5mm) thick rag board.
