PowerSquare Two-­Knife Trimmer

The PowerSquare Two-­Knife Trimmer (P2T) is a compact module that completes the booklet making process by trimming the top and bottom edges of the book. It provides a professional solution for full-­bleed printed work, especially important for colour printed applications.

Fully automated from the PowerSquare’s user interface, up to 40mm can be trimmed from each end of the book, and the trim position can be offset to match the image position. All trimmings are transported outside the machine to a high capacity external waste box, allowing continuous operation.
