We are pleased to announce the launch of a new higher-performance
version of our Smart-binder product for production of
variable page-count, digitally-printed booklets and books.
At Drupa last year the IBIS Smart-binder made a leap in
productivity by increasing maximum output speed to 7,000
booklets/hour (or 14,000 booklets/hour in 2-up mode).
Now IBIS has announced the launch of the new Smart-binder
'Plus HS' model which can also process sheets in
4-page increments at web speeds up to 200 metres/min
(with extra dynamic buckle-folder), or 130 metres/min
(without buckle folder). This represents a large input
velocity increase over previous models.
The new 'Plus HS' model allows much higher throughput,
while retaining '4-page increments' which eliminates the
need for unnecessary extra 'blank' pages when running
at high speeds. The need to "pad out" booklets
with extra un-printed pages contributes to both paper
waste, and increased postage costs.

the Smart-binder producing 120+ page saddle-stitched
booklets from an unwinder-cutter at over 130 metres/min,
with plow-folding only (no buckle-folding) and 4-page
The Smart-binder 'Plus HS' folds sheets individually and
provides integrated sheet and booklet tracking systems
for true variable-data production output. The number
of pages in consecutive booklets can be continually varied
on-the-run under bar code control. Smart-binder models
SB-3, 4 and 5 include IBIS's unique and patented (ISG)
cold-glue binding process , which replaces the need for
conventional wire-stitching. Models SB-4 and SB-5 include
also in-line perfect binding.
IBIS continues its tradition of system improvements and
the evolution of the Smart-binder to meet customer demand
