The three-knife trimmer recieves the books one by one from the delivery chain, then piles them up in required number of book blocks  (up to 100mm of height), and then performs three sides cutting.
The pre-stacking of the books greatly increases productivity.
The characteristics of the Vip Tris:

  • min size 80x100mm

  • motorized format changeover

  • double cut function which consists in making for the first time three sides cut, then, after reducing the size automatically by a few mm, making the second three sides cut. This function is very important to achieve a high-quality product.

  • the possibility to use the machine in semi-automatic way

  • the ability to cut and return the book block to the operator (for the quality control and changing format )

The VIP Stacker offers a large variety of applications in the book industry and thanks to its versatility guarantees high performances on different types of products. The reliable compensating turning cage provides gentle handling and stacking of products such as book blocks, paperbacks and hardcover books. This operation eliminates any friction on the surface of books and prevents any risk of damage even in the presence of delicate materials such as small sizes, valuable endpapers and dust jackets. When required by the pre-set program (e.g. every two or three cycles), the cage turns 180 degrees to allow the opposite of the spines. When the stacking of the programmed number of products has been achieved, the pile is automatically transferred to a delivery conveyor for either removal or further processing.
