All Sheet Feeders Booklet Makers Perfect Binders Trimmers Accessories Pneumatic Systems

The CMT-130TC is a hydraulic single-knife book trimmer with robotized book rotation that provides the same functionality as a three-knife trimmer but at lower cost and with consistent product quality.

This fully automated three-side book trimmer finishing solution is designed for on-demand and short-run digitally printed perfect-bound books. It is capable of fulfilling a combination of both Off-Line and In-Line feeding systems with the Bourg Binder 3x02 family. 

The CMT-130TC has been upgraded with five other new features: (1) a 26.7 cm (10.5 in) color touchscreen display; (2) an integrated barcode reading system; (3) a precise knife depth control; (4) an automatic size detection of untrimmed books ; (5) and a live graphical display of each book.

All new benefits in details

  • Integrated In-Line and Off-Line feeding systems with the Bourg Binder BB3x02 family. With the proper configuration of feeding components, the CMT-130TC is capable of automatically switching, as needed, between feeding books directly from an In-Line Bourg B3x02 perfect binder OR from a manually loaded Off-Line book pile feeder system.  If one system is waiting for its next book, the other system can feed the trimmer to maximize production throughput.   
  • Intuitive 10.5” (26,7 cm) color touchscreen display provides a clear & easy-to-read image of the trimming system. Automatic starting book size detection simplifies the required job parameters making job entry quick and easy.
  • Integrated barcode reading system’s 1D/2D enables true fully-automated book-of-one production by automating job set-up.
  • Precision knife depth control assures consistent and complete control of knife stroke depth and reduces wear to cut sticks as well as the need for continued knife adjustments. 
  • Automatic size detection of pre-trimmed books means only three dimensions are required for job programming.
  • Live graphical display of each book as it travels through the system.
