Booklets and Books Combi-Solution

With this combined solution it becomes possible to produce saddle- stitched as well as perfect bound books end products. The centerpieces of this digital production line are the CS8 Cross Cutter and the Bypass unit. The paper web is cut into single sheets by Hunkeler‘s precision rotary cutting system. The Bypass unit allows quick and easy diverting of the output to the inline saddle-stitching system or to the conveyor belt for stacked book blocks (e.g. for transfer to a near line perfect binder).
