[GreenYes] RE: [heur] [GreenYes] Re: Equipment to Remove Book Binding for Recycling


Title: [GreenYes] RE: [heur] [GreenYes] Re: Equipment to Remove Book Binding for Recycling

This is indeed a paper guillotine, used for cutting large amounts of
large sized paper to smaller sizes in the printing industry.   When I
was at Michigan State University, we inherited one from our printing
shop, and used it for cutting off the binding glue/cover.  They work
great, but a couple of cautions...1] the blades are quite brittle and
are expensive to replace, so make sure you're not cutting stapled
bindings and 2] they cut fingers as well as paper.  We found the
cost-benefit for us at the time worth the expense, and of course trained
staff on safe use.

I know some companies cut the hard covers off of books with a guillotine
type of machine.  I don't have specific information for you, but you
could try contacting this recycling company in Iowa that has such a
piece of equipment:
