Last autumn our Japanese customer Shimane Nakabayashi Co. Ltd. invested in a new Universe Sewing Sheet-Fed, automatic book folding and sewing unit, provided by our local Representative SK Sales & Service Co. Ltd.
The new machine, the first of this kind installed in Japan, is the ideal solution to strengthen their competitiveness on the market and improve their production strategy, allowing them to produce high quality lay flat sewn books from digitally printed sheets.
The Unit also features an automatic signature feeder allowing to combine sheets from digital printing with signature from offset.
"...we introduced the Universe Sewing Sheet-Fed to promote a new kind of book; now we are able to automatically fold, collate and produce a sewn book in one pass...", said the plant manager Mr. Kurahashi, "...thanks to the new machine and the double feeding feature, we will propose a new notebook on the market that can be personalized for each customer".
Nakabayashi produces at the Hirata factory about 20 million books per year, focusing on diaries, student notebooks, commercial notes and catalogues.
