    Hi, there are so many machines and it all hangs on how big your projects are. Most machines now days handle 12"x12" card stock so you can put multiple objects on the page for cutting at one time. I know of no machines that can work like a printer cutting page after page but they may be out there for business purposes but they would cost a lot more then a mere hobby machine. Zing is the one many would recommend but I use a Silhouette and also have the Force. Best I can do at the moment - I'm sure others will have different opinions - a little more information on how big your projects are likely to be might get a more concise answer. Best of luck.

    First, to best answer your question is a lot more detail on what you are trying to do and what you mean by "mass production" is needed to best start to answer your question. Further, are you citing lots of different things and items or just a lot of a couple of things? Then you need to understand that the cutters generally in discussion here are drag blade cutters that require a user to manually place single layers of paper onto a cutting mat for cutting. As a result, there are so,e limitations as to how ,ice one can cut due to the "manual" work involved. Some machines discussed here are more "hobby" level machines, others are used in more of a production environment, but what you are wanting to do, how many at a time, etc. will dictate whether even those machines can satisfactorily meet YOUR needs. To best help you answer that, we need more details from you.
    Go Vols!

    Hi, 

    Thank you for your support. Right now I'm using circuit cutting machine which consumes lot of time (placing cardstock on cutting mat & cutting process) for party supplies.

    I would like to get different things in larger numbers for party supply.Wanna cut card stock as per my required shapes in larger quantity (lesser time- production environment).

    The KNK Maxx Air is ideal for your application because it has a 24" wide cutting range.  You can order custom mats, as well, to increase how much sheets you're cutting at one time. Plus the speed is much faster than the Cricut, even the Explore Air 2.   You can read more about it here: http://knkusa.com/product/klic-n-kut-maxx-air/

    Hi Sandy,

    Thank you for your help. I would like to setup small scale industry & recruit the people to support mass production for handmade party supplies.
    Will this works for it? (For example:  want  larger numbers of head shape ,  letters to assemble it).
    Is there any simple way to produce in large quantity (die cut card stock)

    would having custom steel rule dies made and using a machine similar to a accucut machine might be and option if you going to produce very large amounts of the same items

    I agree... if you are mass producing the same exact design with employees, it would make more sense to use steel rule dies and at least something like this:  http://www.accucutcraft.com/grandemark-2-die-cutting-machine.html

    We have an Accucut Grandemark we use for cutting greek letter appliques.  It's much faster/cleaner when we have to make a large number of the same items. We can usually cut 4 layers of fabric or twill at a time... That being said, the dies are not cheap and they do eventually wear out, at least cutting twill fabric.  We have a Zing we use for cutting backed fabric and small quantities or things and a Roland GX24 we use for most t-shirt vinyl and twill fabrics.
