Binding - Saddle-Stitch
Allen Press announced the purchase of a Muller Martini Tempo 22 saddle stitcher, which can produce up to 22,000 booklets per hour.
After three years, the Primera Digital saddle stitcher’s versatility continues to impress with its customizing capabilities.
The education segment has been the subject of a push by various test producing firms to ditch the printed test booklet and go digital.
We have seen lots of advances in adhesives for bookbinding over the years, with PUR (polyurethane reactive) adhesive being the last major game changer. But there is now a revived interest in protein-based adhesives.
Many, many years ago there was a children’s book titled “The Little Engine That Could.” Somewhat like the little engine, IBIS Bindery Systems Ltd. was founded in the U.K. in 1999 by a small group of bindery systems engineers. They were the first firm to design a saddle stitching system that was specifically designed to process digitally printed sheets printed on continuous toner or inkjet printers
DOME is partnering with Muller Martini. The Primera MC will deliver increased capacity to its finishing department.
The overall shrinkage of the print market has challenged dealers like never before. A smaller potential customer base forces them to diversify their product lines further, and to try to enter new potential markets. This is far from easy, as (successfully) entering a new market — especially against existing competitors — takes lots of time and money. And this also works against new suppliers trying to enter the U.S. market.
