FEATURES

Innovative Three-side Trimmer

The new HT-30 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 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.
