China Print 2017

Meccanotecnica, together with Aster Shenzhen (Meccanotecnica’s Branch in China), will attend China Print, the 9th Beijing International Printing Technology Exhibition.

The event will be held in Beijing from May 9th to 13th, 2017 at the New China International Exhibition Center.

During the 5-day event, Meccanotecnica and Aster Shenzhen will be in Hall W1-016.

Visitors will have the opportunity to see “LIVE production” of high quality lay-flat sewn books from digital printing and offset printing.

On display there will be two of the most successful solutions: Universe Sewing Sheet-fed, automatic book folding and sewing unit, ideal to manage short-runs printed in digital and Uniplex-asterTOP, the fastest gathering and sewing line of the market: the perfect solution to increase efficiency and reduce production costs in the offset environment.


Solutions for digital print finishing – Universe Sewing Sheet-Fed

The new Universe Sewing Sheet-fed, automatic book folding and sewing machine, features higher performance and a more functional and ergonomic design.

The sheet feeding speed reaches up to 500 A4 sheets/min., while the sewing speed up to 10.000 cycles/h (with signature feeder).

This solution allows cost-effective binding of short runs and guarantees the production of high quality books.


Solutions for offset print finishing – Uniplex-asterTOP

Thanks to a record speed of 18.000 cycles/h in combination with asterTOP, UNIPLEX provides an efficient way of producing sewn books.

The solution minimizes production costs by eliminating intermediate handling and non-productive processes as storage and transport of gathered signatures.

In a compact configuration, Uniplex is operated by just one person.

The double hopper feeding, a special function of the gathering module, will be demonstrated during the show. The system allows the gathering of the same type of signature from two adjacent stations, therefore, pallets can be efficiently arranged along the gathering line increasing, even more, the efficiency and productivity.


We look forward to seeing you in Beijing, visit us at China Print 2017 and BOOK…YOUR FUTURE.
