Bindery and Finishing
Today’s bindery departments and service providers have a myriad of finishing equipment from guillotines and trimmers, folders and creasers, collators and booklet-makers to binders and laminators which gives them the flexibility to offer a wide range of finishing capabilities. Most of these require skilled personnel to precisely configure, setup and to constantly monitor, in order to ensure that a perfect booklet, catalog, magazine or bounded document is produced every time.
However, when something goes wrong it can be both time-consuming to trace the exact problem to a specific step or equipment, and very costly to reconfigure and set-up the various processing steps again to reproduce the work.
