Seamless connectivity between the Bindomatic 301 DFS and
Digimaster 9110 and Digimaster 9150i print systems equipped with a
high-capacity stacker or finisher is enabled by the Heidelberg
The new Bindomatic 301 DFS is a patented finishing system
that produces docu-ments that lay flat, like a book, within
minutes. It is ideal for a wide range of industries, including
advertising, banking and insurance. This system provides a more
professional, higher-quality bind than tape-binding alternatives.
Bindomatic's latest in-line document finishing system employs
an edge-gluing system to ensure that all sheets drop into a solid
adhesive that is reinforced with a book-binding cloth. Each cover
is scored four times and then pre-folded. Covers are available in a
wide variety - from Classic Antique and Classic Imperial, to
Traditional Portfolio, Ambassador and Millennium, along with custom
"Digimaster system customers will be able to employ
Bindomatic's solution to produce bound documents with the book-like
appearance of commercial perfect binding - in-house and on-demand,"
said Robert Taylor, vice president, partner management and support,
Heidelberg's Digital Print Solution Center. "They'll benefit from
producing these bound booklets - in-line in a fraction of the time
of other binding solutions."
In addition, Taylor noted that independent testing has proven
the binding is as strong as any perfect binding solution available
on the market today.
The Bindomatic 301 DFS system's key features include:
- Perfect-bound documents with no trimming required
- First book out time is two minutes - after initial set, the
binder runs at the rated speed of the printer, with a maximum
output of 1,800 books per hour
- Continuous-run operation with auto-tray switching and
load-while-running capabilities - no mechanical changeovers
needed between sizes or jobs
- Versatility to bind output from other printers using the
offline bypass slot
- Eliminates manual labor and improves turnaround time
Heidelberg's Parallel Interface, which enables the Digimaster
system connectivity, is a small black box that "talks" to the
digital front end of the print system, sending an electronic signal
to the marking engine about the device the piece will be finished
on. It is easily programmed for integration of the Bindomatic
device with the Digimaster system. The Heidelberg Parallel
Interface also provides connectivity of the Digimaster to other
finishing devices to support a range of applications.
The Heidelberg Parallel Interface to the Bindomatic system
will be made available simultaneously with the availability of the
Bindomatic 301 DFS in June.
Since its start-up in 1974, Bindomatic has been providing
