About Ideal Guillotine 4315

The IDEAL 4315 is an entry-level power guillotine. Retaining the manual flick action clamp positioning from the manually operated machines to avoid unnecessary complexity. Designed to offer accurate and reliable cutting of a full range of materials in sizes up to A3. This simple yet powerful guillotine ensures effortless performance with instant on/off clamping functions. Ideal for the short run, low volume user. The Ideal 4315 and Ideal 4350 are our most popular guillotines for the Education Sector with many High Schools and Colleges utilising these models every day.

Ergonomically designed, the easy cut system with twin hand activation ensures the operator remains comfortable. Even over sustained periods of use. The manually activated flick-action clamp is applied and removed in seconds and yet applies perfect pressure across the materials to ensure an accurate trouble-free cutting process. A clear RED Led produces a visible cutting line while hand positioning of the back gauge is controlled through a precision digital scale and spindle drive.

The Ideal Safety Cutting System (SCS) is employed to ensure absolute reliability in cutting and includes an interlocking transparent safety guard at the front while a fixed steel cover protects the rear of the guillotine.
