New Horizon at Holmesglen: students learning to programme and cut on Horizon APC-610

Victoria’s leading print training centre Holmesglen Institute has installed a new 60cm Horizon guillotine, supplied by Currie Group.

The new Horizon APC-610 Hydraulic Paper Cutter sits in the main print room of the TAFE, which also houses digital print systems and wide format printers.

Paul Ross, program manager – printing, says, “We have had a long-standing relationship with Currie Group, they have been wonderful supporters of print education in Victoria.

“Horizon equipment is very well regarded throughout the industry, and is highly popular in the field, there are lots of print companies with Horizon. When it came to our choice of a guillotine to train the students in finishing Horizon was our first choice.

“The Horizon APC-610 enables our students to gain a complete understanding of modern day cutting, it works with digital files, offers a host of pre-programmed cutting options or enables operators to create their own cutting programmes.”

Vince Pignataro of Currie Group says, “We have had a long-term relationship with Holmesglen Institute, and were happy to demonstrate the features of the Horizon APC-610. The guillotine will enable the students to get a good grasp of finishing products produced within the printing college. Students are able to store different cut combinations and recall the same job at a later stage, or recreate another cutting combination. This makes it ideal for training in the modern world of print.
