Smart-binder for 'small-format'
A number of Smart-binders have recently been
installed at customer sites to produce small-format booklets.
A small-format booklet may typically be 90 (width) x 120 mm (spine
length). These booklets are often for example Product Manuals or Label
Booklets to accompany small size consumer products.
The Smart-binder modifications include
reducing the minimum trimmed booklet width from 119mm (normal min)
to 80mm. Small brochures are produced 2-up (2 booklets
side-by-side) using the Smart-binder optional center-knife. The booklets
are bound either using ISG cold glue, or wire stitches (4 stitch heads
needed for 2-up production).

A solution is also available to allow 3-up or 4-up production, using
a separate additional (in-line) trimmer to cut the book into 3 or
