Universe Web "Official video", automatic book sewing machine for digital printing.


Universe Web reaches remarkable performance and productivity that outpace other solutions on the market. Such productivity level is due to relentless efforts in improving and designing the transport system of the machine and to a highly efficient collating station that features two pairs of cylinders that work independently to increase feeding frequency and productivity. Moreover, the production is further increased by reducing loading time compared to a sheet-fed version.


This video illustrates the paper process during production. From the unwinding of the printed roll to the sewing of the book.


Universe Web has a compact design and can be easily used by just one operator. The machine follows strict ergonomic principles and allows to comfortably carry out every operation.


Thanks to the auto-programming feature, the unit runs different jobs on-the-fly, enabling handsfree workflows. Books, with same format but different page count, are automatically managed thanks to smart barcode technology. In this working mode, the only task of the operator is to follow loading and unloading.


With Universe Web, every single sheet is creased, folded, and precisely pressed for sharp edges along the fold. The area between creasing and collating has been redesigned to improve transport and pressing of the folded sheets. As a result, the pressure is equally exerted on both sides of the fold and the transport is more reliable also with difficult paper such as landscape format sheets.


Meccanotecnica and its branches have always followed a customer-centric policy. We believe in the importance of customer satisfaction and our after-sales teams are focused on meeting customer needs first. Moreover, machine strong reliability and outstanding up-time are guaranteed by the highest construction standard and quality resulting in higher production efficiency and a quicker ROI.


Thanks to web connectivity, it is possible to oversee live production from everywhere by simply accessing your tablet, smartphone, or PC. The system is also integrated by an e-mail server that, if requested, notifies preset events.
