Specifically designed to respond to the growing need for short- to medium run-length book production, the Smart Binding System combines a Hunkeler unwinder and rotary cutter with Horizon folder, gluing and pressing station, perfect binder, intelligent accumulator and three-knife trimmer to convert pre-printed rolls into finished books in a continuous, fully automated, touch-free process. The system is able to move seamlessly between books of varying format and page count, ensuring absolute quality assurance through end-to-end system control and integrity checking. It can produce up to 2,000 books an hour, without manual intervention or added labor costs, a dramatic improvement over current methods. Multiple configurations available for processing conventional offset and digital output in one system as well as interchangeable glue tanks for EVA and PUR adhesives.
