Keencut Ultimat Futura
Keencut Ultimat Futura builds on the unique versatility, advanced design and precision of the world leading Ultimat Gold to take manual matcutting to an ultra-high level of accurate, fast operation on all modern matboard of every type and thickness.
The Ultimat Futura matcutter features an all-new cutting head with built-in self aligning ball bearing rollers operating on twin steel tracks to deliver a sliding action that is smooth, precise and with no discernable friction under load. Maximum operator effort is transmitted to the blade to put the cutting of even 8ply mountboard within the capability of every framer.
Switchable magnetic blade holders on the Ultimat Futura make changing blades and holders for different depths of cut the simple, fast operation so necessary for the many different types of work that are processed in every busy framing workshop and the ergonomically designed cutting head is comfortable for left or right-handed operation.
Starting with the best and improving on it was a logical step and the winning features of the Ultimat Gold have been retained for the Futura including the roller 'lift and hold' system, patented micro-stops and uniquely designed baseplate to accept a range of readily available accessories. The new high performance slideway and head system has been designed in response to the latest and future mountboard developments and will not only maintain but greatly increase the Keencut world leadership in manual matcutter design.
The good news for any current owner of the original Ultimat or Ultimat Gold is that the Futura slideway, cutting head and stop system have been specifically designed to retro-fit to existing machines.
