Digital Finishing Group's (DFG) (Troy, MI) DigiPerfect 900 is a fully automatic perfect binder with milling and notching that can bind a book in less than 20 seconds. A self-adjusting book clamp uses an array of sensors to automatically clamp books to optimum pressure — no setup is required. A combined milling and notching process lets users bind different stocks, folded signatures, and more. The DigiPerfect 900 can bind from two sheets up to 1 ¾ inches.

DFG's Punch Binder is a tabletop, all-in-one system with paper ejection and a stacking device that handles all punching and binding requirements in one compact unit.

DFG also showcased Maxima WS, an automatic wire binding machine rated at 3,000 cph.

The DFG UV Coater20 is a low maintenance, ultra-violet cured coating system with a variable speed of up to 1,800 sph. It coats stocks from 60-lb. cover/7.4 pt. to 146-lb. cover/18 pt. with a maximum coating width of 20 ¾ inches.
