100th Smart-binder to ship to SPIRE in boston

The 100th IBIS Smart-binder is being shipped to SPIRE, Inc. in Boston. "Two new Smart-binder 'Plus' machines will perform critical roles in producing saddle-stitched booklets during the month of September", says Spire's president Rick Dyer.


"The Smart-binder has a reputation for being a solid and reliable performer and was therefore our first choice for a finishing system for this type of 24/7 operation".

The new Smart-binder Plus was introduced at DRUPA with a host of new features, including higher throughput speeds, a new more modern appearance, second-to-none sheet tracking capability, new integrated binding options, and more. The launch of the new Smart-binder ‘Plus’ model has resulted in the sale of six new Smart-binder systems since Drupa .

Flexibility Is The Key

The Smart-binder is a highly flexible machine, which can be modified to perform special applications that can be critical to your success. "Customized" booklets are often required with features such as dynamic perforation for tear-out pages, punched holes, reply envelope and plastic card inserts, re-moisten able glue strips, gate-folded covers, and more!

Extremely short-runs and short-turn-around jobs require the greatest flexibility and number of options in the finishing system. At IBIS we have many years of "hands-on" bindery experience to configure the most productive and efficient system for your specific application.
