- Innovative system designed for assembling and finishing books printed in very short runs.
- Variable perfect binder (PUR for book’s spine, Hot Melt for book’s sides) and variable three-side trimmer.
- Personalized cover system: standard covers, covers with flaps or “false cover” system (end sheets & gauze for preparation for hard cover books)
Libra is the only fully automated and integrated system to produce one unique book at a time, allowing variability from one book to the next in dimension (footprint), thickness, and cover types (soft cover, false cover, cover with flaps).
As the average book run is being dramatically reduced, Libra is the most suitable solution to support short run and book on demand production. With Libra it’s possible to reduce to zero the stocks of each copy and the risk of unsold inventory.
Libra offers the opportunity to reach new markets where short runs are mandatory, such as manuals, limited editions, new authors publishing, art books, research papers, republishing, financial reports and more: small volume publications become an opportunity.
Libra is a unique inline or near line solution, with input from roll (one or two paper input) and/or from pre-assembled book-blocks for fully automated book on demand production. With a productivity up to 800 books per hour, Libra provides complete flexibility and efficiency for short run, personalized books and book of one production.
