Customer Feedback:

Broadridge Financial Services USA:Bill Gaddy, Senior Director

"We were impressed by the Smart-binder’s durable construction, its innovative design features and the many performance improvements....fold quality is second-to-none because the Smart-binder individually folds each sheet...... IBIS’s ‘patented’ ISG cold glue binding option ..... provides numerous benefits, in addition to helping the booklets lie even flatter and giving a stronger bind...... allows the book thickness to vary from minimum to maximum on-the-run and has a much lower maintenance cost compared with wire thickness must vary continually on-the-run. The IBIS Smart-binder is designed very much with this in mind by reading a bar code on each sheet and then tracking sheets and booklets through the machine. The Smart-binder trimmer is capable of handling all book thicknesses without needed any adjustment..... A further advantage of the Smart-binder is its ability to stop and restart without losing any booklets that are in the machine.



R+V Insurance, Germany: Christoph Hees, Print Manager

"The new IBIS Smart-binder SB-3 ‘Plus HS’ has enabled us to increase productivity by 30%, and further improve our ability to personalize our insurance policy documents. The original IBIS system had been working extremely well for seven years, so we knew we were taking no risk with a further investment in this world-leading technology, which also interfaces effectively with other machinery.

Farmers Insurance, Los Angeles, USA: Herb Lamonda, OPC Director

"The addition of three IBIS Smart-binder systems in-line with Océ web printers has greatly improved our look and feel of the insurance policy documents and the mailing of these to our customers.... During peak periods the three Smart-binders are used round the clock and their robust , heavy duty design lends itself well to our demanding performance requirements.
