“Since 2005 production has been handled by a Smartbinder SB-3 from IBIS equipped with a special patented sheet-gluing system able to process up to 650 booklets/hour. It has proven itself all round... Now, R+V has invested in the follow up model SB-3 Plus that has handled production since April 22. It features a 30 per cent higher performance in comparison to the older Smartbinder and maximum thickness has enlarged from 84 to 90 sheets.
