Tecnau launches new automatic cut sheet finishing for book production

Finishing Solutions

Tecnau is building on its expertise in on line cutting and stacking for sheetfed print with the introduction of BookReady, offering the converting of SRA3+ sheet sizes printed in 2-up and 4-up into final size book blocks such as A4 and A5 ready for near line perfect binding.

BookReady changes applications on the fly without any manual intervention at full printing speed, enabling book printers to manage short runs and book on-demand with exact page separation and no guillotine processing.

The new cut sheet finishing solution may be equipped with an automatic 90 degree turning station to rotate 2-up imposed sheets from long edge leading to short edge leading, so that printer speed is maximised and book of one is made possible.

Book blocks are neatly cut, stacked, offset separated and delivered to a belt conveyor ready for the next finishing process. In addition, BookReady incorporates a space efficient design ideal for book printers.

‘BookReady is designed to optimise production and facilitate finishing operations, building on the success of Tecnau’s Stack 1010 sheetfed cutting/stacking system. The solution guarantees high efficiency while eliminating possible errors for customers who want to actively compete in the digital book sector for short runs and book on-demand,’ commented Stefano De Marco, Tecnau's managing director.
