    26 October 2018

    The Trimfast 430mm manual paper guillotine is ideal for schools, colleges, offices, craft centres, mailrooms or small printers. It can cut up to A3 size paper and a 20mm stack height. Used for cutting paper or card down to size required.

    The guillotine is very easy and safe to use with transparent front and rear covers. The back gauge scale is in both mm and inches.

  4. Guillotine Blade / Knife Sharpening
    29 August 2018

    Here at Chilvers Reprographics we are often asked what's one of the biggest mistakes we see made in guillotine cutting operations?

    We find ourselves repeating the same thing over again when servicing paper guillotines, "You're not replacing your dull knife/blade often enough". Many owners and operators of guillotines do not truly understand how the condition of the knife/blade affects the quality of the cut.

    Its amazing how many times we service a guillotine that isn’t cutting well and all we have to do is install a sharp blade/knife for it to be in perfect working order again. Most operators will continue to cut until they experience problems and only then decide its time to change the knife/blade which is probably way past the point it needed changing. Power guillotines today are extremely strong and will cut through a stack of paper with a very dull knife. What operators don’t realize is how much wear and tear this puts on the guillotine. With repeated use of dull knives/blades you cause a lot of premature and expensive damage to the machine and obviously the cut quality also suffers. This could all be avoided by keeping a sharp knife in the guillotine.

    A customer, who was using their guillotine everyday, with stock that included everything from plain paper to card to digital stock was unsure why they were having problems as they had put a sharp knife/blade in the guillotine the month before. You have to consider not only how often and how much the guillotine is in use but also the stock you are cutting, for example if you are cutting grey board then the knife/blade may well need changing daily.

    If your guillotine struggles to cut a 1mm off-cut cleanly and the off-cuts are clumping together in 2’s, 3’s, 4’s then the knife/blade is not cutting cleanly through the paper stack, this is a sure sign of a dull knife/blade that needs replacing or sharpening.

    Guillotine knives/blades can be re-sharpened many times over.  Re-sharpening is cheap so it’s a false economy when compared to the cost of replacing the guillotine.

    In summary, the simple practice of keeping  a sharp blade/knife in your guillotine will keep it running smoothly and remember to always keep a spare sharp blade at hand for when its needed. Book a blade re-sharpen here

    Don't forget the cutting sticks will also need changing regularly.  We stock a wide range of guillotine blades and cutting sticks, in stock ready for same day dispatch when ordered before 4pm.

  5. New Range of Laminators
    1 August 2018

    Introducing a new range of two compact desktop digital laminating machines, the Multi-Lam Foil FX and Multi-Lam Burst. This new range incorporates many features normally found on far larger and costly semi-automated laminating systems in a compact desktop design, offering very high quality laminating with either foiling effects or sheet separation/burst.

    Both variants include the high quality, high pressure Chrome Impact Laminating Roller with 1,400 Watt Infra-Red Heater and accurate integrated thermal measuring probe which ensures perfect temperature control at all times. These machines offer high performance, high speed single & double sided laminating with integrated 18 stage Anti-Curl bar at speeds up to 4.8 metres per minute. Traditional encapsulation is also possible if required for sheets up to 330 mm wide and films up to 250 Micron.

    Operators are assured control of the Multi-Lam series with the integrated table sensor, this Infrared Sensor is located directly before the Chrome Impact roller and will stop the machine if a sheet is not present at the input, this simple mechanism ensures that you cannot run the machine without material passing through. The importance of this mechanism becomes clear on single sided applications as without media in the machine the film exposes to the lower roller and wraps around creating a costly and awkward to remove jam on the machine. Standard desktop machines do not have this mechanism which makes them more difficult to use and much slower to ensure that sheets can be fed reliably to avoid errors.

    The Multi-Lam Burst offers a semi-automated single or double sided laminating solution with the ability to burst or split each sheet as they exit the machine, this creates a finished lay flat sheet ready for guillotining. An integrated Perforation device on both the top and bottom roller punctures the film as it is unwound and fed into the machine, the burst tool is positioned between the front and rear pull rollers and simply splits the sheet using an impact roller before neatly delivering the materials into the catch tray.

    The Multi-Lam Foil FX also offers a semi automated single or double sided laminating solution but without the burst function. Instead, the Foil FX is designed to offer digital printers a low cost compact laminating machine which also incorporates the ability to foil, also known as dry coating. The Foil FX has a rewind on the machine exit which can be used for a number of functions, most popular is the ability for the rewind to remove the waste foil during the foiling, dry coating process. The location of the rewind enables the operator to feed laminated sheets which are then wound on to the rear roller, this automates the process and removes the need for a 2nd operator at the machine rear to split the sheets. As the roller also winds in reverse to the film webbing it also acts as an anti-curl mechanism for thinner materials, which can be split once the job is complete. The Multi-Lam Foil FX incorporates a high capacity re-winder on the machine exit which can be used to create the latest foiling effects, also known as dry coating. These effects have become the latest must have accessory for all digital printers with many of the traditional laminating manufacturers now promoting this technology at every opportunity. This technology is all about adding value, offering effects normally associated with specialist processes, now you can quickly and easily add many bespoke touches to your digital print work, requiring no special tools or training. There are many foil colours available including Gold, Silver and Holographic plus spot UV effect.  Dry coating is cost effective in comparison to more expensive traditional foiling methods. If you already have a foiling solution and just require a low to mid volume laminating solution for single or double sided laminating then the Multi-Lam Burst is the answer.

    Here at Chilvers we always have a large selection of Laminating / Encapsulating Roll Film and Foil in stock.

  6. Gemini Guillotines
    11 July 2018

    Chilvers Reprographics are pleased to announce a new range of four professional guillotines.  All models have light beam guarding as standard and are packed with features to help speed up guillotine work.

    The range starts with the Gemini 490 (490mm cutting width) with a feature rich and highly productive small format paper guillotine that is packed with professional features. The 490 guillotine is highly accurate (within 0.2mm accuracy) with a bright Red LED cut line indicator to make positioning easy. The guillotine has a large easy to use touch screen and an electronically controlled back gauge with fine adjustments. Safety is assured thanks to the 2 handed operations and Infra Red (IR) safety curtain that is fitted as standard. All this for an amazing introductory price of just £3295.00

    Moving up the next three models are all hydraulic cut and clamp, available in three cutting widths, 520mm, 560mm and 670mm. The hydraulic range is totally revolutionary and offer high-speed professional cutting power and are paired with large 270mm colour touch screens. This enables easy setup for complex cut procedures such as business cards.

    Gemini Guillotines are relatively new to the UK but have been extremely successful in Canada and the USA for nearly 10 years with the latest models now including a wide range of features that you would usually only find on much larger, more expensive equipment.

    For more information on the Gemini range of guillotines see here or give us a call on 01908 563149 to discuss your requirements. You may even be able to part exchange-trade in your old guillotine.

  15. Gower College Guillotine
    15 January 2018

    Gower College in Swansea has a very busy reprographics department  Debra the reprographics manager required a range of new machines including a Morgana FRN Numbering and perforating machine and a guillotine, Chilvers were able to supply, deliver and install the machines. Their old guillotine also needed to be stripped down before it could be removed.

    Ideal guillotines are renowned for their build quality. Their old guillotine (made in 1988) had been in position for so long that new flooring had been fitted around it!. Although it has given them years of reliable, professional performance but as the guillotine was now nearly 30 years old spare parts would become a problem.  So decided to stick with IDEAL and go for a new 5260 model, with many new features including light beam guarding, touch pad and power back fence.

    Also installed was a new Morgana FRN5 numbering and perforating machine to speed up a verity of jobs that had previously been done on slower machines. The Morgana also offered them different perforating wheel options plus auto feeding.

    For the full Ideal guillotine range, please see our website. Alternatively, if you have any questions please give us a call on 01908 563149 or email us
