For sign shops, print and ship centers, as well as print shops that produce marketing and promotional materials, banners are usually laid out and trimmed by hand using a box knife. This process can be time consuming and difficult and the results may not always be perfect. Martin Yale is changing that process with the BT100 Banner Trimmer. This easy to use trimmer safely and quickly trims custom or standard size banners from 4" to 43" wide and up to 144" long. The BT100 uses retractable cutting blades which are much safer than open knives or scissors. These blades can be easily replaced, and there are no expensive replacement blades since the BT100 uses standard box cutter type blades. The BT100 is easy to load and will quickly and accurately trim banners within 1/6" by simply turning the handle. Large, locking casters on one side of the unit allow for movement around the work area. The BT100 is made in the USA with the quality construction that Martin Yale is known for.
