Picture framers across the world recognize the Ultimat Futura as the easiest to use precision mat board cutter. With unequaled blade control and micro-stop calibration, it offers assured accuracy. The Ultimat Futura creates perfect frames every time.
Consistent faultless mounts:
The Ultimat Futura performs perfectly on even the thickest conservation mountboard. The blade cartridge system provides accurate blade depth control and a measuring stop ensures flawless v-grooves. Everything is squared and calibrated ready for you to use straight out of the box.
No more overcuts or undercuts:
The micro stop adjusters fitted to the start of cut, end of cut and margin guide stops, allow you to dial out overcuts or undercuts in seconds. It’s so simple, any overcut is eliminated by turning the stop thumbscrew towards minus (-) and any undercut is eliminated by turning the thumbscrew towards plus (+). A rigid self-aligning margin guide ensures consistent accurate parallel borders.
Unequalled blade control and effortless cutting:
The Ultimat Futura cutting head has built-in self-adjusting ball bearing rollers operating on twin stainless-steel tracks, to deliver a sliding action that is smooth, precise and with no discernible friction. The blade holders are mounted on large thrust and radial bearings for precision blade control with zero side-play. The heavy-duty, one-piece aluminium extruded base gives absolute stability. Maximum operator effort is transmitted to the blade, to allow easy cutting of even the thickest boards.
The unique roller lift and hold system frees your hands so that you can precisely position the mountboard.
Shaped blade holders perfectly fit the hand to prevent finger strain when cutting even the toughest board. The head is comfortable to use for right or left-handed users and the cutter allows both hands to pull the blade holder when cutting.
Bevel & vertical blade holders:
The switchable, magnetic blade holders make changing the blades for different depths of cut a simple and fast process. The vertical blade may be locked in the up position for safety, down for cutting regular board and left off for multi-stroke cutting of tough board.
Quick fitting interchangeable guides:
The margin guide, squaring arm and optional board support are instantly removable for space-saving, or safety, when the machine is not in use. The instant clip-on/clip-off right squaring arm with repetition stop, is provided to accurately size all mountboards from 90cm (36”) down to 4cm (1.5”). Optional board supports are available to clip onto the base to hold large boards flat and square. The rigid T-bar margin guide is extendable up to 75cm (30”). The margin guide extension kit gives an accurate all-round location for the title box and multiple aperture cutting.

"....the best in precision mount cutting."
“The easiest and quickest manual mount cutter I have ever used, the best in precision mount cutting.”
David Wilkie GCF of Silverstone Framing (UK)
75cm extension mat guide kit:
Perfect for square, accurate position when cutting large mount boards, multiple openings, title boxes or just very wide margins.
Multi-angle cutting gauges:
Three different angled plates which clip instantly into the margin guide, giving predictable and accurate positioning for the mountboard to be marked or cut on an angle. The chosen angles were researched to provide creative scope to a framer with no need for fiddly adjustments. For special creative cutting, more than one angle plate can be located in the margin guide at one time.
60cm support arms:
Extension arms that clip on increasing the width of the base to 100cm (39”), to hold large boards flat and square by preventing sag. Use on the left with the margin guide, or on the right with the squaring arm.
Reverse bevel stop:
Add this to your cutter to produce a reversed bevel mat without over or under cuts. These mats can then accept ‘slips’ or ‘fillets’ producing a clean tight joint between the slip and the mat.
