Automatic three-knife trimmer for the finishing of books printed in digital
A new Challenge
There is a new challenge, however, one that seems to be coming faster
than most had anticipated: the lack of qualified labour to run
printing and binding plants.
How can we address this issue and remain competitive and profitable?
The answer is not easy. Still, new strategies can help printers run
the bindery with fewer operators thanks to the integration of the
production processes or a transition towards digital printing and the
adoption of new business models.
The integration of the finishing processes brought by the Uniplex and
Multiplex lines addresses this challenge increasing productivity,
reducing the workforce, and lowering the unitary cost of the book.
These automatic gathering and sewing lines provide the most efficient
way of producing books, eliminating intermediate handling and
non-productive processes such as storage and transport of pre-gathered

DIGITAL PRODUCTION OF BOOKS
In the digital production of books, the choice between sheet-fed or
web-fed finishing is based primarily on the production workflow and
the variety of formats and substrates to be handled; factors such as
average run length, size variability between titles, paper types, and
weights, and overall production volumes are all elements to be
considered and evaluated.
The automatic book sewing machines for digital printing of the
UNIVERSE SERIES allow book manufacturers to precisely find the correct
version for their business model, helping them open new market
opportunities, increase efficiency, and reduce costs.
The combination of UNIVERSE, automatic book sewing machine, the back
gluer PROXIMA for hardcover book preparation and the three-knife
trimmer positions itself as an effi¬cient and cost-effective solution
for the production of high-quality books in short-runs.
