Our bindery boasts some industry standard-setting equipment, e.g. systems manufactured by the Swiss Müller Martini and Hunkeler, Italian Meccanotecnica and Japanese Horizon.
Müller Martini Alegro A7Our 19-clamp Müller Martini Alegro line for perfect binding and hybrid production (perfect/thread-sewn binding) with the Motion Control system that controls the individual drives using servo motors enables us to complete jobs in record time while achieving the highest quality. Alegro enables production across an extremely broad spectrum of sizes: starting with the very smallest through to the A3 size. Additionally, the line includes the integrated Granit three-knife trimmer and a stacker.
Müller Martini Diamant 35 MCPoland’s first automated combined hardback binding line ideal for low- and high-volume production due to the short time required for changeovers, which is possible due to the use of servo motors. Müller Martini is a perfect binder for a broad range of sizes. Once the book block is cased-in, it is given its final and durable shape in the joint forming and pressing machine. The patented and unique joint forming and book block pressing method guarantees ideal book shape.
Horizon BQ-270 with a three-knife trimmerThis is a single clamp binder with fully automated operation for perfect binding using hot melt glue. It includes a nipping station, a side-gluing system and a fume extractor. It enables the binding of books and catalogues of varied thickness and uncompromising quality and durability.
Hunkeler Book SolutionSpecialized system for the folding and cutting of paper rolls printed beforehand on the roll machinery. This is the first machine of this type in Central Europe launched in 2015. The system is configured to work at a maximum speed of up to 200 metres per minute where the paper roll thickness is up to 558 mm. The system produces faultlessly cut and bound book blocks that are then effortlessly further processed on the Müller Martini Alegro perfect binder line.
Meccanotecnica Universe Sewing book sewing machinesWe produce thread-sewn book blocks using the Universe Sewing book sewing machines manufactured by the Italian Meccanotecnica and designed especially for thread-sewing of digitally printed media. The machine’s work is highly automated. It eliminates the traditionally laborious and time-consuming process of sheet folding and collating and additionally enables the thread-sewing of small volumes of books.
Using the Xerox FreeFlow Core software we prepare imposition output layouts with the correct sequence of sheets. A stack of printed sheets is fed to the machine automatically by a vacuum feeder. The barcodes printed on the sheets contain all the information relating to the book. The machine reads the codes, folds, collates and thread-sews the sheets within the book in the required sequence. The finished book blocks are automatically separated and the loose thread ends are shortened to a length of approximately 10 mm. We are presented at the output with perfectly sewn book blocks ready for further binding processes.
StitchLiner MARK III by Horizon featuring a digital printing feeder and a three-knife trimmer for block cuttingThe first machine to be installed in Poland. A fully automated bookbinding system designed for digital printing that provides high productivity and above-standard quality of binding. StitchLiner Mark III is equipped with a unique feeder for digitally printed sheets with an installed reader to verify the completeness of the sets. The collected sheets are jogged (and scored if necessary) to achieve outstanding precision, previously unattainable with this type of devices. The sheets are then conveyed to the stitching unit, where they are stitched on the so-called “saddle”. The booklet is then transported to the three-knife trimmer for three-side trimming.
