ODM Installs Vortec Thread Guard Needle Coolers in Super Sewer

Tuesday, June 05, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Super Sewer XXL is the next generation of ODM automatic side sewing machines that’s designed for on-demand photo books, children’s books, yearbooks and textbooks. The XXL is designed to produce sewn book blocks up to one inch (25 mm) thick. In order to accomplish this and keep book production performance levels at a profitable rate for the bindery department, ODM engineers installed two Vortec Thread Guard™ needle coolers. One is installed in the Super Sewer XXL’s high speed drill station for pre-drilling holes (up to one inch deep) and the other for thread sewing (same as the original Super Sewer) in order to maximize performance in producing one-inch sewn book blocks at the rate of 400 per hour.

Both Super Sewer models feature ODM’s exclusive Back Tack Technology simply put, the sewing machine does a reverse backstitch on the head and foot of the book block. This ensures a strong side sew which will not come apart at the head and foot like standard side sewn books. A hopper delivery neatly stacks the sewn books.
