When using a guillotine, cutting with precision is imperative in order to minimize waste.
The safety of the operator is even more important! In situations where an operator is exposed to risk of injury, IDEAL guillotines are disabled temporarily from cutting.
IDEAL guillotines not only stand out for their quality but also for their unrivaled commitment to safety during operation. Not only are guillotines used for cutting paper (and cutting off heads in the old days), they are also used industrially for cutting plastic.
Our IDEAL 4305 manual office guillotine with a 430mm cutting length for formats up to A3 in size – providing for particularly high operational safety, which does not disturb or slow down the working process. IDEAL guillotines are recognized throughout the world for their superior features and longevity of operation.
By way of reference, the company FLIPFILE have recently purchased ten IDEAL 4305 guillotines for their production of plastic sleeve books, known as Flipfiles. The finishing process that requires trimming of hundreds of these books daily requires precision and ease of use. The IDEAL 4305 machine enhances operational safety, and offers exceptional reliability and durability.
The all metal construction of the IDEAL 4305 guillotine gives the machine its strength; its blade width is made from German Solingen steel which cuts sheets of paper in stacks up to 40mm. Designed as a table top machine, a stand for an the IDEAL 4305 guillotine is optionally available. The blade changing device with a covered cutting edge allows for safe and convenient blade change from the front without removing the machine covers. Even the cutting stick can be turned or replaced easily from the outside of the machine.
With a narrow cut of 34mm and table depth of 435mm the adjustable blade guides, made of hardened steel come with side lay measuring scales in mm and inches. The back-gauge comes with fine adjustments of measurement that are done with a calibrated scale on the spindle guide operated on the hand crank.
The IDEAL 4305 guillotine has dimensions of 400mm height, and width and depth of 880mm. It is the perfect hand operated guillotine for your office or factory cutting requirements.
IDEAL guillotines have been imported and distributed throughout Southern Africa by Maynards Office Technology for the last sixty years.
