Domino to launch booklet printer

Domino will be showing a booklet production system based around its K630i single-engine duplex ink jet press. This will be matched with systems from Kern and Ibis to produce multi-page booklets at speeds of up to 7,000 booklets per hour.

These systems include the Kern 100 unwinder that handles the web to the K630i and the Kern 130 rotary cutter that turns the printed web into individual cut sheets. These are fed in-line to the Ibis Smart-binder which, depending upon the booklet type, folds and either wire stitches or glues the sheets together, and if required, can add a pre-printed cover. Each individual sheet has a 2D code in the margin area, which is checked at the Smart-binder. A three-knife trimmer finishes the booklet to perfect size, delivering a completed booklet available for immediate despatch.

The integrated solution can deliver the web at speeds of up to 150m/min and produce finished booklets of up to 200 pages (50 sheets), changing content and booklet page-count on the fly and producing up to 7,000 booklets per hour.

Bryan Palphreyman, Domino product manager, said that Domino had been talking with Ibis and Kern for some time, adding: “We believe the market wants complete solutions, rather than just products, and this integrated production line demonstrates this to our customers. We see the book market as a high growth opportunity for Domino and we are using Drupa to demonstrate our intent to enter into this sector.”
