Meccanotecnica and Screen Japan

The latest version (ver. 3.4) of EQUIOS provides roll to book imposition and variable barcode output functions that support automation with Meccanotecnica’s Universe Sewing Web-fed. This collaboration combined with the Truepress Jet520HD’s high-quality printing capabilities, creates an ideal solution for book printers and publishers to produce high-end hardbound books on demand, using thread sewing, which is the strongest and most secure binding method for producing long lasting books with a superior quality finishing.


Comments by Tsuneo Baba, President of SCREEN Graphic Solutions Co., Ltd.

Our current collaboration with Meccanotecnica, a leading vendor of automatic book sewing equipment, has enabled the automation of a process that provides exceptional durability and quality. When combined with the high-definition printing, possible with the Truepress Jet520HD, the two technologies enable the on-demand creation of books with quality and productivity levels that far exceed standard digital printing.
