October 3, 2011

Frank Romano at Graph Expo 2011Peter Martini of Dr. Gunther Kast Company spent two days with us at Graph Expo, sharing his vast knowledge of bookbinding while visiting a variety of bindery equipment and digital printing equipment exhibits. In addition to learning what was new in binding and printing technology, we stopped and listened to what Frank Romano had to say while speaking at the Kodak exhibit.

Create a Good Book Block with ODM's New Lock-Bind Gadget

ODM Press Release

On Demand Machinery's Lock-Bind gadget enables your bindery department to 'lock-in' the first and last sheets while safely removing the side-panels. The result is a well-engineered book block that's ready for casing-in. This intermediate step (prior to casing-in) will form a solid book block that will now be able to absorb all tensile forces exerted onto the binding edge. It's fast and easy to create a good book block.
