First Eurobind 4000 Adhesive Binder Installed

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

The Hungarian print shop Pera Nyomda in Budapest has been working with the region’s first Eurobind 4000 adhesive binder since the end of last year. The greater quality of the adhesive bound products and the increased ability to meet delivery deadlines have given the company a springboard to attract new business. "The Eurobind 4000 has boosted our productivity and given us the means to process high-quality printed sheets into end products in house," explains László Kvassay, owner of Pera Nyomda. In the first two months, the company has already supplied 300,000 brochures. Its product spectrum consists primarily of monthly magazines, journals, catalogs, and brochures. Most of the output is for the Hungarian market, with some five to ten percent destined for export. Pera Nyomda is a full-service print shop employing a workforce of 30. Its prepress equipment includes a Suprasetter 105 SCL, while its pressroom is equipped with two alcohol-free Speedmaster SM 102-8P and Speedmaster CD 74-8P units. Its postpress section includes five Stahlfolder units, an Stitchmaster ST 450 saddlestitcher, a POLAR 92 X cutter, and a POLAR 137 XT Autotrim cutter.

The highly automated Eurobind 4000 adhesive binder which was presented as a serial machine at drupa 2008 by Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) produces 4,000 adhesive-bound brochures per hour. 28 units have already been sold worldwide.

The Eurobind 4000 fits well into the Pera Nyomda workflows since it also produces short and medium length runs in top binding quality and strength. Simultaneous motorized format adjustment is performed across the entire workflow from gathering station and binder to three-side trimmer. This ensures quick and easy job and format changes. The polyurethane nozzle technology gives Pera Nyomda the technology it needs to produce high-quality brochures and books quickly and cost-effectively. Both thin products with spine thicknesses of two millimeters and above and 60-millimeter-thick books can be processed in a wide range of formats.

The Eurobind 4000 recently won the prestigious "iF product design award 2009". Its ergonomic design and the high reliability of the production process played a key role in this success.
