The Challenge Machinery Company

Since Challenge first started making guillotine paper cutters in 1887, Challenge has been recognized as the leader in applying technology in innovative ways in the development of products for print finishing operations, both for traditional print processes and for digital printing applications.




Book Trimmers

Since the introduction of the Challenge CMT-330 at PRINT ’01, the CMT family of book trimmers has evolved adding additional features and models required by today’s short-run book publishers. Designed for the expanding digital print environment these machines incorporate an industry-exclusive modularity which allows you to tailor your CMT trimmer to provide exactly the level of automation your organization requires. The CMT family of book trimmers provides consistent cut quality, durability, reliability, and the ease-of-use that you have come to expect from Challenge products.



Champion 305 TC

The Challenge Champion 305 TC continues our well known excellence for innovation, reliability and durability. UHMW gib surfaces and composite bushings require virtually no maintenance for years of trouble-free operation. Standard features such as power soft clamp, air table, digital hand wheel, and automatic false clamp detection reduce operator fatigue and maximize productivity.



Paper Drills MS-10

From the time when Challenge invented and patented the first paper drill in 1930 until now, we have drawn on over 80 years of experience to offer a superior paper drill for most any need.

High production and heavy-duty drilling of up to 10 holes in a single stroke makes the MS-10 the ultimate drilling machine.
