That which cuts off or shortens, as a nearer passage or road.
The valve gearing or mechanism by which steam is cut off from entering the cylinder of a steam engine after a definite point in a stroke, so as to allow the remainder of the stroke to be made by the expansive force of the steam already let in. See Expansion gear, under Expansion.
A term used in webpress printing to describe the point at which a sheet of paper is cut from the roll; usually this dimension is equal to the circumference of the cylinder.
1) The knives in the folder which cut the web into segments of uniform length during the folding process. 2) The length from the lead edge to the tail edge of a piece of product after the web has been cut in the folder. The cut-off varies from press to press and corresponds to the size of the printing cylinders.
A straight channel dredged through a bend in a winding waterway (usually a river), thus straightening and shortening the route for navigating the waterway; navigation of the bend so cut off from the former course of the waterway may or may not be possible after construction of the cut-off.
In web printing this means the cut or print length of a project. For instance, the web press at BOPI has 11, 11-1/2, 14, 22, and 23" cut-offs which allow sheets to be cut from the web roll as it comes off the press.
Circumference of the impression cylinder of a web press, therefore also the length of the printed sheet that the press cuts from the roll of paper.
May refer to the cut or print length.
The minimum OP or QTAC selection rank required for entry to a course in a particular year. Cut-offs are not predetermined and vary from year to year.
The cut or print length relating to the circumference of the plate cylinder on a rotary press.
the full column depth of a page, including the margins. Different newspaper printing presses use slightly different sizes, webs, or reels of paper ateline the line at the beginning of a news story that says where and when the story comes from
The date or time at which files will be removed from the current Files Area. The purpose of cutting off files is to remove them from the current files area as soon as possible and transfer them to a low-cost storage area or archive. The cut-off is usually July 1 of each year.
In web offset printing, the cut length of a single revolution of the printing cylinder. Conventional long grain presses have a 620 to 630mm cut-off, whereas short grain presses typically have 560 to 600mm cut-off.
In web printing, the cut or print length that corresponds to the circumference of the plate cylinder.
In web printing, the cut or print length corresponding to the circumference of the plate cylinder and/or die cutter; repeat length.
Usually quoted as a percentage, this is the point in a piston stroke at which the supply of steam to the cylinder is cut off by the closing of the valves. Maximum cut-off (typically 75%) is used for starting a train and is reduced as the train accelerates and less effort is required. The amount of cut-off used is controlled by the driver via the screw reverser or the reversing lever in later designs. This process is also referred to as 'notching up'.
A railway line built to shorten an important route or to avoid particularly busy lines or junctions. LNWR examples were: the Trent Valley line, from Rugby to Stafford, avoiding Birmingham; the Winwick cut-off (1861), which allowed trains between Warrington and the north to avoid the L&M line and Earlestown and Parkside junctions; and the Runcorn line (1869), from Weaver Junction (near Hartford) to Ditton Junction (Widnes), more direct from Crewe to Liverpool than the route via Earlestown.
The line where the two halves of a compression mould come together; also called Flash Groove or Pinch-off.
