Canon UK & Ireland has added a third-party inline finishing solution to its portfolio, the SDD PTM7006 Press Trim Module booklet trimmer, in order to improve production efficiency for its cut-sheet toner press users.

Exclusive to Canon, the SDD PTM7006 can be attached inline to a Canon ImagePress C910 or VarioPrint 140 Series printer, allowing production of brochures and manuals in one operation without additional handling or finishing steps. Trimming the long edge of booklets up to 6mm thick, the module also flattens the spine to give a ‘superior, professional appearance’ and makes packing and stacking for distribution easier. There are also two further options to enhance booklet quality – a two-side trimmer for full-bleed applications and a square fold module to achieve a completely square spine.

Joseph Courts, head of product marketing for Canon UK & Ireland, commented, ‘For print businesses, the pandemic has put fresh emphasis on the importance of automation and of adding value for customers. Finishing is key to both and we’re committed to offering the broadest possible choice of solutions, helping print producers to succeed by streamlining production and branching out into new application areas. With  this new option from our finishing partner SDD, PSPs and in-house print departments working with Canon digital toner printers can add a professional edge to their products, while cutting production time and costs.’
