[Ferrostaal has made sewing and bookbinding possible for digital printers. At drupa, Meccanotecnica introduced at the Book-on-Demand Universe Digitaline series for digital printers, which has application for publishers and authors interested in producing on-demand short runs from digitally printed stock.

Ferrostaal says that this this new solution matches quick turnaround times from digital printers with rapid, high-quality book production for self-publishing, reprints, or personalised books.

The Digitaline book finishing line has four in-line units that finish a book starting from digitally printed single sheets. The finished book is produced in four steps; thread sewing, pressing and end-papering, binding, and trimming.

The Digitaline products are available individually for sewing and binding or as a completely integrated bookbinding solution.

The Universe sewing product will process 350 (420 x 640mm) sheets per minute.

Simpson believes that print companies who make the right decision in selecting quality finishing solutions will improve their bottom line. He concludes, “Identifying the finishing equipment that will improve efficiency, productivity and ultimately, profitability should be the key elements in the decision making process for all print businesses.”]
