CutStar - the Advantages of Web Offset in Sheetfed Offset.
The CutStar short-grain sheeter offers you the best of both

feeder. It allows you to process stock weights of between 40 and
300 gsm. The printing stock is unwound from the reel, cut to the
required format in CutStar and then shingled. The stream of
shingled stock is then fed into the feeder.
CutStar allows you to use inexpensive reel stock rather than
more costly sheeted stock, saving you up to 15 percent. With
special printing materials such as foils or aluminized paper, the
saving is often even greater.

one side to allow easy access to the feeder. The press can then
continue working in sheetfed mode.
