Sewn book production with Meccanotecnica


This is the innovative Roll-to-Book Solution for sewing books directly from the pre-printed roll, thanks to the “touch-less” workflow and the integration of the operations. The UNIVERSE SEWING WEB-FED is ideal for web digital printers who have the need to efficiently manage from short to medium runs, avoiding non-productive steps such as: unwinding, cutting, stacking, palletizing and paper handling. This solution allows cost-effective binding of any kind of runs and guarantees the production of high quality books.
