IBIS Smart-binders at Hunkeler Innovation Days


AUTHOR: John Hower

Mark Spelman, Head of IBIS Sales in North America, and John Cracknell, Managing Director of IBIS, recently exhibited at Hunkeler Innovation Days in Lucerne, Switzerland. The duo had a fantastic time discussing the innovative benefits of IBIS Smart-binders with a portion of the show’s 6,700 visitors. Thank you to everyone who stopped by to speak with us; we look forward to working with you!



Another highlight of Mark’s trip was stopping by the Ecosystem booth, another one of our manufacturing partners. Our Italian supplier of Film Laminators was debuting their new line of Digital U.V. Coaters — an elite solution for embellishing.



IBIS, founded in the United Kingdom in 1999, is a world-leading supplier of high-speed digital book finishing systems. The IBIS Smart Binder ‘Plus HS’ can produce personalized, variable page-count wire-stitched (SB-2) or cold-glued (SB-3). These systems are used around the world to produce personalized booklets for schools, health care, insurance, financial, government, and many other applications. Notable installations include RR Donnelley, O’Neil Digital Solutions, Pearson Educational, Broadridge, and Liturgical Publications.



Achieving up to 7,000 booklets per hour, IBIS Smart Binders individually score and fold 4- or 8-page sigs into a collated set before wire-stitching, or spine-gluing books in 3.8” x 4.7” up to 17.4” x 10.7” size formats.



The Smart Binder may be supplied as a model SB-3, which includes IBIS’ unique ISG cold glue binding system. This system produces a “stitchless” book which has better lay-flat qualities than a wire-stitched booklet, as illustrated in the photo above. The SB-3 lay-flat solution inserts better during the mailing/fulfillment process.
