Precision upgrades hard cover book production with Zechini
Dagenham based Precision Print has installed the new Zechini Roby Zero case maker and the tried and tested Zechini Roby Junior 2 semi-automatic case maker in a bid to upgrade and bolster its bindery division.
The decision to invest in the bindery division came because the company wanted to offer short run book production for customers.
Andy Scarpellis, chief executive officer for Precision Printing, said: ‘Due to Friedheim’s long standing reputation and the support that it can offer for the machines and with our past experience with the company servicing our older equipment, it was the obvious choice when buying new equipment.’
Earlier this year, the company moved from Barking to Dagenham and along with another site in Sunderland, it now offers an impressive array of finishing equipment including multi-finishers, high speed folders from MBO, multiple guillotines in a variety of sizes including two Baumann-Wohlenbergs, die cutters, a B1 laminator, cutting and creasing machines from Kama and many more.
As a compact and versatile semi-automatic case maker, the Roby Junior 2 fills the gap for both short and medium runs. The gluing unit is integrated into the machine in order to save floor space and has quick and intuitive controls. Thanks to its extremely simple and fast changeover the Roby Zero casemaker is an ideal solution for the production of book cases for very short runs. The changeover is quick and simple thanks to the simple joystick control. All the usual covering materials can be used: paper, laminated paper, photo paper, fabric, padded cardboard, artificial leather, etc.
