    Hey guys
    So,
    We print lot of books with 100pages sometimes less sometimes more.
    we need to cut the book sides after we staple or put glue.
    We cut the books with guillotine polar.
    The thing is that the books are torn apart at the sides while we cut *include photos*
    I cut 1 book at the time. The books are with laminate. also without it is the same result.
    Do you have any advice what i can do? thank you.

    Gal.

    There are two fundamental things which must be observed when cutting bound material. When performing
    a top and bottom cut it is essential that the cut is always performed against the spine. If this is not
    observed the paper will tear in the spine area. If it is observed, the material is able to well support itself
    and the spine will only fray marginally.
