Last month at Hilltop Products we were pleased to have been able to help out the Royal Marines Shop with cutting these ribbons for their Christmas cards this year.
Cutting the ribbon is a task that the Royal Marines Service Veterans would usually help with, however, due to shielding, it just wasn't possible this year. These cards raise a lot of money for the Royal Marines charity and veterans year on year so they are an important product for the Royal Marines Shop.
Due to this, we were initially approached by the Royal Marines shop about the possibility of hiring the Auto Hot Knife Cutter so they could get this task done quickly. Upon explaining their situation to us, our management made the offer to process the ribbon here on-site free of charge instead. 
As soon as the material arrived, we started cutting the required 14,000 pcs of their ribbon, which had a lay-flat size of 95mm. Automatic machines are ideal for this high volume batch cutting, and our Automatic Hot Knife cutting machine did the job perfectly, as you can see below!
The Automatic Hot Knife Cutter works on webbings, ribbon, braided sleeving and tubings. It is built with an adjustable temperature and has an automatic job stop when the end of the material is reached, for optimal performance every time. The hot knife melts the end of the material, and so all cuttings are sealed neatly without the ends fraying. This machine is also available for hire with an option to purchase the machine after the hire period.

Of course, as a company, we are fervent supporters of all the Armed Forces, and to offer our support after the year everyone has had was a no-brainer.

Kerri was pleased with the results and said "Thank you so much for your help with this. We really are so grateful. Your kindness and willingness to help means so much at this crazy time."
