Akiles Diamond 5 Round Corner Cutter

Round Corner Machine Must Have

I am a big fan of round corner cutting machines. They are a must have tool for any print finish shop. Round cornering can be a time consuming operation which can add to your labor overhead on your project. So, we are always trying to find ways to speed up the process. So, we recommend the Akiles Diamond 5 Electric Round Corner Cutter.

The Diamond 5 is a small electric round corner cutter that packs a punch. It has a foot pedal operation which allows you to use 2 hands for rounding corners. It is small enough to sit atop any tabletop or counter top. The 5 means it can cut up to 500 sheets at a time.38corner

It has 3 sets available including:


  • 1/4”
  • 1/8”
  • 3/8”

The 1/4” die is included and the others are optional purchases.

It also has a detachable table so you can do small projects like business cards with ease, while also doing sheets of paper up to 500 at a time.

It can also work with a variety of materials including;

  • PVC18corner
  • Polyester
  • Leather
  • Paper
  • Polypropeline

It is a great tool for rounding the following items:

  • Covers
  • Pouches
  • Pictures
  • All types of IDs
  • Invitations
  • Postcards

We like the Diamond 5, but there are many others out there to consider. If you need help identifying what would work best for you, download our Round Cornering Buying Guide or check out the Round Cornering section of our website.
