    S Class 3 roll cutters feature first-class engineering and advanced cutting technology. The new S Class 3 series is crafted to cater to the needs of true professionals who demand nothing short of top-notch performance, pinpoint precision, and unparalleled versatility in their work. With its advanced technology, intuitive software GoSign, durable construction, and time-saving features, they surpass even the most demanding user expectations.

    True Tangential Cutting Technology

    The highly-engineered tangential cutting heads on the S Class 3T Series have a unique motorized knife, allowing the cutters to achieve unparalleled accuracy and precision down to the smallest details. Our True Tangential cutting technology even handles heavy sandblasts, paint masks, and reflective materials.

    Performance head functionality

    The S Class 3 TC models are the most advanced cutters of the S3 Series. Their high-precision cutting head can now carry two tools at once. This allows you to cut and crease or cut and draw without changing tools. 

    Smart object sorting and paneling

    The Smart Object Sorting feature is designed to select the most optimal starting point for cutting objects, every single time. In addition, the unique Smart Paneling function improves cutting accuracy and simplifies post-processing. When paneling is, e.g., set to 18in, all objects within this range are cut at once. 

    OPOS alignment for smart production

    The Optical Positioning System is an automated contour alignment system. The OPOS X sensor technology senses 4 to 128 marks on a wide range of materials. Now, the camera on the S Class 3 Series is more performant with even faster recognition abilities.

    Larger media roll

    The media roll on the cutter can now handle a diameter of 7.8in and supports a roll weight of at least 100 lbs. This improvement is highly beneficial for print and cut applications, including laminated vinyl.

    Ease of use

    Discover improved ease of use with a blue, green, and red-lighted status bar. Additionally, swiftly identify adjustable components by their blue color. This is complemented by a strategically placed tool tray at the back for efficient operation. The S Class 3 is also designed with a focus on ergonomics and simplicity in usage.

    Increased yield with G-performance

    With G-Performance, you can boost the production on the S Class 3 roll cutters by up to 40%. Its impact is especially noticeable on a faster reading of the registration marks and when cutting wider substrates. 

    GoSign cutting software

    The user-friendly software GoSign is your first choice cutting software, allowing you to manage your preferred workflow with great flexibility. Settings and action sets can be created and tailored according to your specific cutting jobs at any given time.


    The S Class 3 TC models are equipped with the most advanced cutting head in the S Class Series. The high-precision cutting head with True Tangential Technology can now carry two tools at once, allowing you to cut and crease or cut and draw without changing tools. 


    On top of that, the TC models feature an even more performant camera. Thanks to automatic data processing in the cutter instead of external software, the registration of marks is faster than ever before. Combined with our powerful True Tangential Cutting Technology and knife pressure of up to 1000 gr, these models are designed to deliver true cutting excellence.
