World Premier of IBIS Smart-binder 'Plus HS' at PRINT 13
EDEN PRAIRIE, MN—September 5, 2013—Next week’s PRINT 13 show in Chicago (September 8-12) will provide another important IBIS milestone. This will be the first public showing of the new higher performance IBIS Smart-binder ‘Plus HS’ (High Speed model ).
IBIS will be delighted to demonstrate its ‘Plus HS,’ producing varying thickness booklets at 160-180 metres/min (525-590 feet/min) web speed in conjunction with an MBO roll unwinder, sheeter and dynamic buckle folder.
This global premier, together with the introduction of the new U.S. partners MBO and Bell & Howell, are important developments in IBIS's commitment to customers by providing first-class support services in the highly competitive, 24x7 operating environments that its equipment is often used.
The new Smart-binder ‘Plus HS’ incorporates enhancements to the base market-leading Smart-binder system resulting in production of up to 7,000 booklets an hour at web speeds up to 200 metres a minute, whilst retaining saddle-binding page variations in normal increments of four. The ‘Plus HS’ unique offering over previous models comprises a new higher speed sheet folding/collecting system and performance enhancements to the trimmer transport system.
The IBIS Smart-binder ‘Plus HS’ is the only system to fold sheets individually, vary page content on-the-run between min and max, and provide integrated sheet and booklet tracking systems for true variable-data production output.
