Rotary Blade Trimmers

Lassco Wizer Score II™ Perfing & Scoring Machine – 19-1/2″

The most accurate cuts will always be made with rotary cutters. Trim paper, thin plastic and other materials with precision. Rotary trimmers offer a longer cut length than straight blade cutters. Available in a wide variety of lengths and sizes, these cutters are also some of the safest manual cutters as the blade isn’t exposed like it is on most tabletop cutters.

Guillotine Cutters

Cut-True 15M Manual 17″ Paper Cutter

Just as the name suggests, a guillotine-style paper cutter cuts paper using an “overhead” blade that drops through a stack of paper. Guillotine paper cutters are commonly found in offices. They’re sharp, can cut through multiple sheets with ease, and there are some great measurement guides on the working surface. There are even some that are fully programmable and make automatic cuts through inches of paper. Lloyd’s carries everything from tabletop models to high-volume, fully-automatic, programmable, hydraulic operated production machines.
