Saddle Stitch Systems
Saddle Stitch Systems
The Smart-binder system using individual sheet folding before collection together on the saddle, which results in excellent lay-flat even up to 200 pages. The Smart-binder may be supplied in-line with a digital cut-sheet printer (SB-1 model) or in-line with a digitally-printed CF paper web (SB-2, 3, 4 or 5) at speeds up to 180 metres/min (590 feet/min). Alternatively, it may be supplied in off-line form using an integrated sheet pile feeder which can be loaded with sheets from multiple digital printers.
For the first time ever, both wire-stitched or glued books may now be produced from the same machine. In this way the Smart-binder provides a solution for multiple different book types and formats, with the option of a separately fed cover, sheet perforating, hole punching, loop stitching, etc.

The Sprint-binder PB-600C and PB-2000C systems are designed to be fed from a stream of sheets directly from a cut-sheet printer. Optional in-line folding can reduce the sheet format size to the required finished book size, if needed. The sheets then enter the stacker where they are collected on top of each other to form loose book blocks. These book blocks are then rotated to the vertical and pushed automatically into the clamp of the single-clamp Sprint-binder PB-600 or the 4-clamp Sprint-binder PB-2000. Optional in-line book trimming is available after binding.
