04 Apr 2010

The resurgence in the economy has seen print companies make a prudent investment in three knife trimmers. The two models of Trident, E 20 and E 15, from the Welbound family saw innumerable installations across India.

Ana Printo Graphix has set up a full-fledged bindery to support their book print export activities in Noida. This unit has selected the heavy duty trimmer, Trident E20, with speeds of 20 cycles per minute.

HT Media Ltd, the media group who publishes Hindustan Times, Hindustan and Mint, have hand-picked Welbound to support their high-end commercial print activities. Along with the state of the art printing machines from Manroland, HT Media has chosen Welbound to bolster the bookbinding equipment. Trident E20 is a part of this. Repro India Ltd, the leading book printer in the domestic and export book market showed faith on the E20 to be the “offline trimmer” at their facility in Sachin, Surat.

The E20 can handle extra large formats up to 44 cm x 30 cm, at 20 cycles per minute. E15, the younger model, which is gaining popularity, has a smaller footprint.  It handles the most popular book formats, up to 35 X 30 cm, at speeds of 15 cycles per minute.  Both of these follow the stringent European safety standards and provide diagnostics through PLCs.



Chaman Enterprises, the Darya Ganj, Delhi-based book printer installed a E15. According to Fardeen Ikram, the focus while selecting the equipment was on quality and consistency of trim as well as operational safety.
