MBO’s Variable Finishing Technology takes finishing farther than any other solution on the market. With the ability to reconfigure on-the-fly based off of job data from a code, MBO’s Fully Variable Book Block Production Solution gives printers the unprecedented capability to produce different digitally printed books in succession. This means that books of different formats and signatures, such as 6×9 inch 12-page signature and 8 1/2×11 inch 16-page signature, can be printed and finished off of the same roll.
Highlights of the Fully Variable Book Block Production System
- Variable Cutting can cut different length signatures off the same roll
- Variable Folding Technology can change fold paths on-the-fly based off of job data as different length signatures approach the folding stage of production.
- A mark reader at the delivery unit can identify the end of a book, allowing printers to print several jobs on the same roll
- Stacking and Shingled Stream deliveries are available depending upon delivery requirements
