Riso is to launch an inline automated perfect binder. It can be combined with the either the 9150 or 7150 models of the ComColor X1 Series of colour inkjet printers, turning them into a self-contained book manufacturing solution for both short runs and high-volume production. It offers a cover layout program to simply cover design and spine printing. It also boasts automated side-binding to instantly secure printed pages before the book reaches a high-pressure gluing stage. It accommodates varying book thicknesses up to 300 sheets (1.5mm to 30mm), and efficiently binds books up to 600 pages.
