In Ipex 2010 booth 19-F751, this May, Zechini will show its bookbinding lines to realize hard cover books in short, medium and high runs.

X-BOOK is touted as an excellent option for small binderies and digital printing centers, for making books on demand or photo books. The machines Roby Junior (casemaker), X-Case (casing-in), Special85 (book press) and Cimatic (nipping press) included in the standard version of this line work as independent units. It produces 1,000 to 1,500 books per day.

The casemaker Roby Junior and the casing-in machine X-Case are available in manual or semiautomatc version with different performances. Roby Junior can work with any kind of bookbinding material and offers easy size changeovers. X-Case offers easy setup and cleaning.

VIP BOOK, the company’s automatic line that was introduced at Drupa 2008, now offers improved performance. The VIP BOOK line covers all the operations needed to realize hardcover books, from the end-paper gluing and back-lining to the pressing and nipping passing through the head-banding and casing-in. Each machine on the line can work offline, ensuring speed and price flexibility. The standard speed is 20 cpm.

Together with VIP BOOK for book processing, Zechini offers the automatic casemaker Roby1800, which also produces turned edges, ring-binders and special covers up to a maximum of 5 board pieces.
