First, take a look at the different complexity of the three one-ups. It's fairly obvious that JobA is the simplest and fastest to cut, followed by JobC and then JobB. So it's no surprise they graph up to show that. But wait, why is JobB faster on Cutter1 when Cutter2 was faster on both less complicated jobs? You're not seeing things! It turns out that JobB contains perforation cuts and Cutter2 is not equipped with a perforation wheel so it has to crease each perforation line and follow with a "sewing machine" cut which takes quite a bit longer.
Acceleration of 3 cutters
We hear some owners say, "I bought the fastest machine on the market for the kind of cutting I need to do." That's probably true but if you take a look at the acceleration curves below you will realize a key factor in actual machine productivity.
The equipment you purchased will perform to its advertised capabilities as long as your operators are using the machine per the training and exact methods they are supposed to. This graph shows us that different machines can reach their peak speeds faster than others. The leading brands often will cut more objects faster - in general. That because they get up to full speed in a shorter amount of distance than the less expensive machines. What can we learn from this? The mix of things you typically cut and your team's ability to run your machine at maximum performance are the two biggest contributors to your ability to run at full capacity on any machine.
