Zechini Becomes Exclusive Worldwide Distributor of Smyth F1088

Monday, March 05, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

The renowned Italian companies Zechini Gra-For and Smyth have recently struck a deal according to which Zechini will be the exclusive distributor of the newly developed thread sewing machine Smyth F1088 all over the world.

Continuous attention to innovation and the desire to offer its customers the highest possible quality has prompted Zechini to add the F1088 sewing machine to its extensive range of bookbinding and converting machines perfected over the last 60 years. A sewn book blocks has significant advantages over an adhesive bound book block irrespective of the type of glue used: it can be used with all kinds of paper, it has better lay-flat properties, it is more wear-resistant and its spine can be formed more easily into the final shape required.

Based near Turin, Smyth have been producing book sewing machines ever since their foundation in 1958. Their vast know-how in this field is the best guarantee of the quality and reliability of their machines. The recently developed F1088 manual sewing machine is the ideal solution for digital printers who wish to be self-sufficient in production of sewn books. In spite of its small footprint the F1088 can handle signatures up to the maximum size of 490 x 520 mm. Such a size range makes the F1088 interesting also for conventional trade binders looking for a way to handle outsize jobs and very short runs efficiently. An incorporated thread cut-off device enables the operator to easily separate sewn book blocks from one another at the delivery. 

Thanks to the new Smyth F1088 sewing machine Zechini can now offer a complete range of hi-tech solutions to all kinds of bookbinding and paper converting operations, supported by an efficient and highly qualified after-sales service.
