Preview

The modular book solution for the production of glued book blocks inline or off-line for continuous digital printing systems up to a paper web width of 30“. Processing of 4, 6 or 8-page signatures with quick setups and format changes. The high-performance cross cutter CS6-HS and the new double star-wheel delivery SD7 guarantee non-stop pro- duction at 200 m/min (656 fpm) with over 450 output cycles per hour. In one stacking cycle, several book blocks are delivered. The system is characterized by modularity and flexibility coupled with simple and safe handling for further processing thanks to integrated book block gluing and perfectly flat book stacking. The book-on-demand line can be used as a flexible near-line solution or as an in-line system and is designed for the low to medium volume segment.
