“It was the ZM12’s moving column and very attractive price tag that convinced us,” said Trevor. “It’s much more compact in operation than the Holz-Her was and as far as safety is concerned – well, it’s in a different league.”

“Neat, precise cuts are essential for the various parts of a sign to fit together correctly. When folding, accuracy is vital for the folds to work correctly, with everything properly aligned. The Zapkut takes it all in its stride.”

“There was plenty of detail on the saws: I was able to get all the information I needed to properly assess whether a Koolkut would be right for us,” he noted. “As a company they’re open, approachable and non-pushy; really nice to deal with.”

“One of the biggest benefits is that it is saving our backs; it is so much easier to carry in a sheet and just drop it onto the saw than it ever was with a table saw and then having to move it through. We really like the fact that it cuts square and so accurately, which saves us considerable time on site when fitting the results. The optional vacuum unit has cut out the dust in the air and residual dust on the workpiece, making this process much cleaner.”

“The work is being done a lot quicker and now I am getting home in time for tea!….  indeed it has been benefits all round, and I haven’t found a downside at all;  I’m really pleased with it. Sagetech is one of the best companies I have had dealings with over the last eight years”.

As co-Managing Director, Raphael Brault, explained, the particular benefit that the Sagetech machines offer is their ability to cut quickly, easily cleanly and accurately some of the harder signmaking materials such as aluminium composites, acrylics, and polycarbonates. What Raphael particularly liked is the flexibility and comprehensiveness of Sagetech’s four ranges. He recognised that the Zapkut ZK unit, which is uniquely portable and lightweight, will appeal to small businesses where, when not in service, the machine folds up compactly and can be stored by hanging it on the wall.
