High Performance

Industrial Bookbinding Machines

The Meccanotecnica Group is the world leader in the design and manufacturing of automatic book-sewing machines and gathering and sewing lines for the industrial production of books.

Meccanotecnica has been producing machines for industrial bookbinding since 1964, specializing in automatic book-sewing machines known all over the world with the ASTER brand, which has become synonymous with reliability and a high level of performance.

The advent of digital printing has led to the development of new solutions for bookbinding, able to produce books in short runs and with rapid changeovers, and to cover the entire book production process: from the binding of the block to the three-side cutting.

UNIVERSE is the brand that encompasses the automatic book-sewing machines for digital printing, both sheet-fed and web-fed, that can reach unmatched levels of productivity and reliability. The back gluer INLINE automates the preparation of books for the casing process and the fully automatic three-knife trimmer TRIMMING processes short runs down to one book even with flaps. These machines complete the portfolio for digital book finishing and offer to printers and binders a cost-effective solution to automate high-quality book production.




Meccanotecnica Group is the world's leading manufacturer of automatic book-sewing machines and lines both for offset and digital printing for the industrial production of books.
