In today’s digital print market the final finish of the book is often compromised by cutting on a paper guillotine. This not only increases the wear of the guillotine but takes up valuable time on the machine as the book must be turned 3 times! Further, the narrow clamp of the guillotine is not kind to the newly bound square spine of the book, often crushing it unless the pressure is greatly reduced losing control of the pile. The three knife trimmer has a whole surface clamp firmly holding the book or pile in position throughout the cutting process where the two sides and foredge are cut almost simultaneously. It is the correct tool for the job!
