IBIS Smart-binder options - Corner hole punch module CHP-100 for Smart-binder trimmer

The hole punch (system CHP-100) may be installed in the Smart-binder trimmer to punch a hole in the right corner of each booklet (looking in direction of book flow). It is installed in a location such that the hole is punched at the same time as the book front edge is trimmed. The punch is driven by the downward motion of the upper trimmer knives and this drive may be easily inhibited by a quick manual adjustment of the drive arm. The punch is spring driven back up out of the book as the knives move back up to their top position. The system includes a set of new additional pneumatic-driven side joggers, which ensure that each book is correctly side registered before the hole is punched.
