About Ideal Guillotine 4705

The IDEAL 4705 is a powerful manual guillotine designed for office use. But with the durability and quality to match many power guillotines. It incorporates the IDEAL safety cutting system known as SCS. Including transparent hoods over the front and rear tables. A safety lock on the cutting lever and a safe blade changeover.

Ergonomically designed for ease of use, this powerful manually operated guillotine is capable of cutting sheet sizes up to SRA3 in both landscape and portrait orientation. This extra size of cut matches that of the Ideal 48 series of guillotines and allows for printed materials with edge bleed to be cut accurately enabling edge to edge professional-quality prints.

Accuracy of cut is assured thanks to a clear optic scale located on the front table operated in tandem with the calibrated hand crank on the front of the machine. The Spindle Drive Clamping System, matching the clamp method on the larger Ideal 4815 series, offers perfect clamping pressure across the full cut width whilst also offering infinitely adjustable clamping pressure. The larger 70mm cut capacity of the Ideal 4705 over the smaller Ideal 4305 completes the package offering a significant improvement on productivity over the smaller guillotines.

The Ideal 4705 Guillotine is the perfect solution for a Small Printer or Home Crafter looking for a professional sized guillotine.
