The HT-30C three-side trimmer features automated job set-ups and quick changeovers to meet the requirements of the short-run print-on-demand book market.

Up to 12 inches of books can be loaded into the in-feed hopper, where books are automatically fed for unattended operation. The HT-30C stores up to 40 different book jobs in memory.


Advantages at a glance

  • Innovative Three-side Trimmer – The HT-30C 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 color touchscreen. The HT-30C then performs all necessary set-ups 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-30C can trim books of different thickness continuously. Maximum trim thickness is 2”.
  • 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.
  • Manage your Bindery with pXnet – The optional pXnet bindery control system makes job scheduling and tracking for the HT-30C super efficient, or accept JDF set-up data from an upstream workflow.
