IBIS Smart-binder installed at Maqprint, France

At their print factory close to Limoges, Maqprint use a unique system to produce stitched and trimmed booklets from rolls printed on an HP web printer.

An IBIS Smart-binder SB-2 'Plus HS' with two additional buckle-folders and a sheet rotator produces personalized (individually addressed) booklets, format size 15 x 21 cm.

Rolls printed on an HP press are unwound and cut into large-format sheets with 16 pages printed on each sheet (8 on each side) . The sheets are buckle-folded in half, rotated 90 degrees, and then buckle-folded in half again before entering the IBIS Smart-binder.

The cover feeder feeds a separate outside cover, if required.

When we explained to IBIS what we needed, they constructed a customized finishing system for us says Mr Philippe Sans, the owner of Maqprint.

The system runs very reliably and is a key component in enabling us to meet our customer’s requirements
