IBIS Smart-binder options - Spine clamp kit B0000586

The Spine Clamp Kit B0000586 reduces book corner tearing when making very thick booklets. All saddle-stitcher side-knives normally result in some tearing of the corner of the book spine. This results from the fact that the V shaped spine is not supported well by upper clamps.

The clamp kit modification ensures that the V spine is better clamped to reduce spine corner tearing by the side knives. The standard modification kit is designed to suit A4 or USA 8 ½ x 11" finished book sizes only. For other sizes refer to IBIS.
