Next Level Automation was the motto of this year's Hunkeler Innovationdays

More than 6500 visitors attended the Innovationdays in Lucerne. Two halls and premium exhibitors welcomed customers and prospects from all over the world. This year's event had an international scope, with customers coming not only from continental Europe but from all the continents.

Meccanotecnica showcased the most important piece of the line for hard-cover book preparation: the automatic book sewing machine Universe Web.

“These Innovationdays have been incredible. Observing how Hunkeler's partners best interpret automation and innovation is interesting. Both printers and finishing companies brought their best solutions, and we could finally interact with our customers and prospects. We are looking forward to the next Innovationdays in 2025,” says Giulia Sinatra, Marketing Specialist of Meccanotecnica.

Universe Web is the automatic book sewing machine for digital print finishing which integrates the processes of unwinding and cutting and allows cost-effective production of thread-sewn books directly from the roll.


During the event, we demonstrated the production of photo books in partnership with a major printing-equipment vendor, which showed how to combine high-quality printing with high-quality finishing.

We also collaborated with one of our Italian customers, LEGODIGIT, to demonstrate the production of three different jobs printed on the same roll. The result was a seamless production of books, which was enabled by smart barcode technology. This working mode consistently frees-up operator time and allows the efficient production of books in short runs.
