Product Features

  • Innovative Three-Side Trimmer - Three-side trimmer trims three sides of a book with a single knife. a pressure clamp holds and rotates the books for sequential top, fore-edge, and bottom trimming.
  • Robotic Trimming - The operator simply inputs untrimmed and trimmed book size at the touch-screen. The HT-30 then performs all necessary setups automatically, and transports and trims each book.
  • Highly Accurate Finishing - Precise servo motors are employed for knife positioning to insure high quality trimming. The servo controlled hydraulic unit adjusts pressure automatically for markless trimming.
  • Nonstop Trimming - If the book dimensions are the same, the HT-30 can trim books of different thickness continuously. Maximum trim thickness is 51 mm (2.0").
  • Powerful Trimming - Knife operation and book clamping are hydraulic controlled for safe and powerful trimming.
  • Safety Operation - The trimming section, feed table, and stacker are all interlocked and safety covered for maximum operator safety.
  • Easy Maintenance - Single knife trimming system reduces knife replacement time to 1/3 of normal three-knife trimmer. The HT-30 is equipped with a tungsten-carbide tipped trim knife for longer life.
