|Hucais Printing boosts high quality digital book production with two Universe Sewing Web-fed and Inline|
|Hucais Printing Group, one of the top ten printing company in China, has recently invested in a Meccanotecnica’s book finishing line composed of two Universe Sewing Web-fed, automatic book folding and sewing units, and one Inline, modular and multifunctional back gluing line.
The company has already 5 Universe Sewing Sheet-fed in operation, producing thousands of high quality lay-flat sewn books every day. The new line is the innovative ROLL-to-BOOK solution for sewing books directly from the pre-printed roll. It allows cost-effective digital book production of short to medium runs thanks to “touch-less” workflow and the integration of operations such as unwinding and cutting. This means: less work to load the machines, less space to stock piles of sheets and less paper handling between printing and sewing. With this installation, the efficiency of the digital print finishing process is highly increased by reducing manpower and at the same time by increasing productivity. Typical applications produced are hard cover higher education and out-of-print books with a typical run length varying from 50 up to 400 books per title.
