Dahle 440 Rolling Trimmerautomatic-clamp-150x150

The 440 Rolling Trimmer is part of Dahle’s Premium Trimmer Series. This cutter features a finely honed, Solingen Steel blade that will cut up to 30 sheets of 20lb paper at a time. Cutting up to a maximum of 14 1/8″, this trimmer is ideal for small, professional jobs.

Cutting Ability: The Dahle 440 is  versatile. It can slice through Foil, Cardboard, Cardstock, Construction Paper, Label Stock, Laminator Film, Paper, Photo Paper, Photographic Film, Plastic Films, Specialty Papers, Vellums, Illustration Board, and  Mat Board. The sharp blade cuts in either direction and self-sharpens as it cuts. This ensures  a clean, precise cut with every use. The blade is very sharp, and is encased in plastic housing to keep fingers safe from accidents.

Automatic Paper Clamp:  Dahle 440 has an automatic paper clamp. That runs the entire length of the cutter and holds paper firmly in place. The clamp is activated by the cutting head, as you cut, the pressure of the head locks down the clamp.
