IBIS to Launch Smart-binder 'Plus' at drupa 2012

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

IBIS will launch a new enhanced model Smart-binder ‘PLUS’ system at Drupa on the JMD stand B10 in Hall 13.

Features of this new ‘PLUS’ model include higher cycling rate, indexing book transport belts in the trimmer,  a cover auto-loader,  automatic stop-stitch  and higher web speeds.

New selective folder F-200
A new ‘selective’ folder model F-200 is now available for Smart-binder operation when web speeds exceed 300 feet/min.  This folder offers the unique ability to vary the  number of pages in the book on-the-run in increments of 4,  by a making a combination of 8 and 12 page folded sections. 

Smart-binder SB-5
IBIS is currently installing a Smart-binder SB-5 system (including both an in-line saddle-stitcher and an in-line 4-clamp perfect binder) in-line with a high speed ink jet printer (492 feet/min) at a Government Printers in Italy. This system switches automatically between saddle-stitched booklet production and perfect-bound book production.

Smart-binder SB-2 performance feedback
We have received customer feedback that during February 2012 three Smart-binder SB-2s at one site eachprocessed 26 million  A4 pages into saddle-stitched booklets in-line with three digital CF printers. This represents around a million pages per day, per machine, and demonstrates the Smart-binder’s unique capability for high-volume output.

New Perfect binder (1,500 books/hour)
To complement our existing single-clamp in-line perfect binder model PB-600, we are now able to provide our new ‘Sprint-binder’ PB-2000 with 4 clamps for 1,500 perfect-bound books/hour.  We can configure this binder as part of a complete system tooperate in-line with the highest speed digital CF web printers.
