Hunkeler will take over the complete sales and service business for the DocuTrim sheet finishing system from Müller.
Thorsten Piel, director at, Müller, says, “This agreement represents a consistent step in the expansion of Müller’s global activities. Müller will benefit from Hunkeler’s worldwide sales and service network, whereas Hunkeler will be gaining a first-class product in the DocuTrim.”
Hunkeler will initially take charge of the business across Europe, following which it will take it over in other markets. DocuTrim, developed by Müller, has already been on the market for some time.

The DocuTrim perfectly complements our Generation 8, POPP6 and 7 continuous-feed product lines.”

It enables the cutting of formats in various finishes such as position-independent slit cuts and cut-outs as well as dynamic perforation and creasing with horizontal and vertical lines.
