Books produced


Production lines



Growing market competitiveness and price pressure is pushing digital printers and binders towards solutions capable of increasing efficiency and productivity while at the same time reducing costs.

How can we be successful in a market that sees print runs progressively decline?

The answer to all these challenges is AUTOMATION, the game-changer and the key to optimize production processes.

Come and talk to us about it

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.

Process Integration

Process Integration

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 signatures.

Automatic Gathering and Sewing Line

Process Integration


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.
