IBIS at Hunkeler Innovationdays 2017
We exhibited our flagship Smart-binder SB-3 Plus HS at the 2017 Hunkeler Innovationdays show (HID) last month, in-line with Dominos K630i ink jet press and a Hunkeler web cutter and plow-folder.
The Smart-binder system included a SB-097 sheet pile feeder, (which allows operation either in-line with a digital press/roll unwinder or off-line with its integral sheet feeder), a cover feeder and a new-design cover Autoloader. The new Autoloader increases the maximum cover pile height from 20 to 200mm and maintains the cover feeder tray at the optimum pile height.
Also on display was the new IBIS Smart-Data
Analysis System (SAS-100), showing an analysis of all Smart-binder
The SB-3 is capable of either wire stitching
or ISG cold glue binding. Because of the high level of interest in
the unique and patented ISG cold gluing, we chose at HID to produce
most books cold glue-bound instead of stapled. A video
of the Smart-binder running at HID from the SB-097 sheet pile feeder
feeding sheets at 400 sheets/min can be seen HERE.
