Plowfolder Book Solution inline

Outstanding features of the Plowfolder book solution are the on-demand production of book blocks with variable page count and format lengths (when using the DynaCut function) as well as perfectly glued book blocks for reliable finishing in the perfect binder. In addition to processing 4-, 6- and 8-page signatures into glued book blocks, it is also possible to produce loose stacks for thread-sewn books. The Plowfolder book solution can be used offline as well as inline at a printer or perfect binder.
