C.P. Bourg Challenge CMT-130 Book Trimmer
Short-run perfect binding has made great strides within our industry in recent years. Trimming duties have been carried out by traditional guillotines for many years, but this process is very time-consuming and less than ideal for the dynamic digital book publishers of today.
The sturdy steel and cast-iron design of the CMT 130 ensures years of trouble-free operation. Hydraulic clamping and cutting action provides strength to cut through up to 2" (50.8mm) thick books without hesitation. Standard features such as UHMW gib surfaces, composite bushings, and stepper motor technology require virtually zero maintenance.
Compressed Air Requirements for CMT-130:
The CMT-130 requires 80-90 PSI regulated, dry, non-lubricated compressed air at a minimum of 5 cubic feet per minute (at 80-90 PSI). The required minimum air quality rating is ISO 8573.1 Class 2.4.2 (solids < 1 micron, pressure dew point < 38°F at 100psig, and oil content < .08 ppm).
The following 2 compressor systems are commonly used with the CMT-130. Other equivalent systems may be used also. The compressor system must include an air dryer capable of ISO Class 4 or better (pressure dew point < 38°F at 100psig). Failure to use dry, non-lubricated compressed air that meets or exceeds the above requirements may cause damage to the machine and will result in the warranty being voided.
System 1: Traditional piston type compressor. Powerex AS0203 - 2 hp climate control compressor with built-in refrigerated dryer, electronic auto drain and starter.
System 2: Rotary scroll type compressor. The advantage to this type is minimum maintenance and very quiet operation (49-51db). Powerex SES0308-208v with ACO100010 factory installed refrigerated dryer and auto drain.
