Dynagraph, our sales agent in the Middle East for in-line and near-line systems with Tecnau web cutters, working in partnership with Canon, has sold a Smart-binder SB-2 to United Printing Press in Abu Dhabi, UAE. This Smart-binder is running in-line with a Canon ColorStream printer to produce examination papers, and is used to meet a demanding production schedule.

Dynagraph General Manager, Jamal Kanaan, commented as follows:

"Dynagraph is proud to be IBIS partner in the Middle East, this partnership has been proven right by succeeding together in a very challenging project of UAE exam paper production for United Printing Publishing, the challenges and most importantly the delivery schedule could only be met through an excellent partnership with IBIS and the supply of the reliable SB-2 machine"
