Welcoming the Next Evolution in Thread Sewn Bookbinding
03 Oct 2023

Since 1964, Meccanotecnica and its family of companies worldwide have been the leader in automatic book sewing machinery.

The ASTER® brand is respected for its quality and durability. With five machines to choose from, there is a perfect fit for every need - from entry level to top of the range. By combining stand-alone units with gathering lines, book producers can reduce labor costs and eliminate human error.

Meccanotecnica / Book Automation has also continued to innovate, using their thread sewing know-how to develop the UNIVERSE® line of machines to finish digitally printed books. For those requiring complete process integration, ask about the full line of hardcover book preparation machinery, including the PROXIMA® nipper/end-sheet tipper/back-lining machine and the TRIMMING automatic three-knife trimmer.

The latest innovation from the R&D Department is the new SIRIO® perfect binder. Designed to meet the needs of the evolving bookbinding market, the small footprint and focus on low cost of operation make it the perfect upgrade for every digital book manufacturing environment.
