My application will include two actions:
1) Cutting stacks of sheets of 12” x 18” paper (bond, text, and/or cover stock) into half resulting in sheets of 12” x 9”. I understand that the number of sheets that can be cut will vary with the type of paper.
2) After the above paper is cut to 12” x 9” I would print these sheets on text stock in collated sets, add a sheet of cover stock (80# cover), then fold the sets individually and staple them into booklets (either manually or with a booklet maker). Finally I would trim any uneven edges of the booklets with the cutter. I understand that 3 sides might need trimming and of course would prefer to be able to trim a stack of such booklets.
What are the realities of using a stack paper cutter to do the above?
A stack paper cutter will handle the requirements of your job. We recommend the Dahle Model 852 Premium Stack Paper Cutter. We recently had the opportunity to test this very model and it performs well with cutting projects such as yours. The thing you will like the most about the model 852 is it’s relative ease of use. Most stack cutters in this price range are a little more cumbersome to work with, but the 852 is a streamlined machine that makes light work of large cutting jobs.
The Dahle 852 stack cutter helps you save time by cutting up to 200 sheets in just one stroke. You can quickly position the stack paper for multiple trims. It also has a built-in laser beam and adjustable paper backstop to help you accurately line up each cut.
