Druckerei Zu Altenburg is a printing house located in the city of Altenburg (Germany). The company is specialized in the production of art and architecture books and also of other genres, with always high quality in mind.

The first automatic book sewing machine, an Aster 2000 from Meccanotecnica, was put in operation in 1996.

Two decades later, the time had come for a replacement investment. 

"We were looking for a solution capable of providing a constant quality of sewn book blocks, high productivity and flexibility, integrating sewing and nipping processes", says the technical director Erik Scharf.
