IBIS has installed around 30 Smart-binders
around the world for producing examination booklets, and
we have recently received orders for five more machines.
This makes us indisputably the 'number-one' supplier
for high security production of exam booklets in-line with
1) Europe: Multiple IBIS Smart-binders each produce 50
million exam booklets and result in additional orders
A prestigious printer in Europe already
has six Smart-binders producing examination papers
in-line with digital printers. These Smart-binders include
additional sheet and booklet tracking controls for extra
booklet security. The output of each of these Smart-binders
often exceeds one million booklets per month. One of these
Smart-binders has now produced 50 million stitched and
trimmed exam booklets (an impressive milestone!) and
two others have produced close to 50 million.
That's a lot of students, around the world, who are
sitting exams using booklets made on an IBIS Smart-binder.
These students don't have time to think about how their
exam booklet was manufactured, but we are proud to have
played our part in enabling them to further their education!
This printer will continue using their six existing Smart-binders
and has now ordered a seventh new Smart-binder (new high
performance 'PLUS HS' model) to produce 6,500 exam booklets/hour
in-line with a CF printer at web speeds of 100 metres/min.
The eighth Smart-binder is expected to be installed
at this same site by the end of 2014.
2) Africa: Three in-line IBIS Smart-binders for exam
Three Smart-binder systems
have recently been ordered to produce exam papers in-line
with CF web printers (with optional feed from pre-printed
rolls at up to 180m/min). Our sheet rotator and folder (option
RF-100) allows also for A5 size booklets (in addition to
A4) without reducing web width. A BSS-11 booklet stacker
on the delivery produces booklet stacks up to 33cm high.
3) Turkey: First IBIS Smart-binder now installed at Meteksan,
Ankara for exam paper production
The first Smart-binder is now installed
at Meteksan in Ankara in-line with a Canon Continuous Feed
printer and Hunkeler web cutter. This system will shortly
commence tests and live production of examination papers
at Meteksan, following which further IBIS systems are expected
to be required.
