Champion 370 TC

The Challenge Champion 370 TC continues our well known excellence for innovation, reliability and durability. UHMW gib surfaces and composite bushings require virtually no maintenance for years of trouble-free operation. Standard features such as power soft clamp, air table, digital hand wheel, and automatic false clamp detection reduce operator fatigue and maximize productivity.

The Champion 370 TC meets the toughest safety standards in the industry today. Light safety curtains, enclosed rear table, two-hand timed non-repeat cut buttons, and a knife safety latch contribute to our UL and CE certification.

The intuitive 10.5" color touch-screen TC Controller allows variable mode data entry, automatic fraction to decimal calculation and unlimited program storage capacity. Clamp mark waste is reduced or eliminated with programmable electronic clamp pressure control per cut. Innovative advances improve the task of program creation through features such as repeat and loop commands, USP port for thumb drive program delivery, network capable hardware with an Ethernet port, label cutting and sheet division tools, and more! The TC system is the first paper cutter controller in the world to recognize common .csv format program files making offline programming simple and easy to implement at any size print operation.

Proudly manufactured in the USA, the Champion 370 continues our legacy of providing… assurance you made the right decision.
