L&W Sample Trimmer

Trim your paper samples to perfection

With L&W Sample Trimmer, you can cut a 300 mm wide sample strip from most paper or board samples. This sample can then be tested in L&W Autoline or L&W TSO Tester.
L&W Sample Trimmer is a precision sample cutter. In the paper mill it is the ideal solution when access to the jumbo reel is limited, thus preventing the use of the Profile Sample Cutter, code 148.

It is electrically powered and can be controlled by a foot pedal.

The sample is fed between a rubber-coated roller and a roller with a rough metal surface. The feeding roller pressure can be adjusted pneumatically. When cutting thick grades, more pressure is needed to keep the sample straight. Thinner paper requires more careful handling and lower pressure.

There is no maximum limit for the width of the raw sample before trimming; the minimum width is about 350 mm. Trimmed paper samples are reeled onto a tube with a diameter of 50 mm. Thick grades and board samples can be reeled manually, without a tube. We recommend installing L&W Sample Trimmer at the end of a table, with a length similar to the length of the profile samples.

  • Adjustable feeding roller pressure
  • Adjustable cutting speed
  • Easy to use
  • No upper limit for the raw sample's width
  • Ideal for R&D centres, institutes, and schools
