    what equipment for this type of bind?

    Thanks all. So a Powis Parker Fastback machine would do this? https://mypowis.com/blog/portfolio/fastback-20/ I want to bring this type of binding in house. And perhaps hard covers as well and I saw PP make hard cover accessories for the fastback machine...

    Hi folks, Could you let me know what equipment is required for this type of bind? Supplier described it as 'glued spine'. Cover is 300gsm and pages are 100gsm. Many thanks, Ben

    Fiery vs KMBS print controller

    I had a demo on my PC of KM's AccurioPro Flux software a couple of years ago. It wasn't connected to a controller but it seemed to process a large file quite quickly - by process I mean compiling hundreds of pages from different docs, inserting tabs etc.. So in that sense I think you can...

    Do I need Indesign?

    Hi folks, We're considering getting a perfect binder soon, as an alternative to comb binding. There will be some work involved in creating covers and spines, with spine text, and layout etc of the correct spine width, plus glue traps etc. I've never done any of this before, so am a total...

    accessories/essential tools for a perfect binder?

    Hi folks, We're getting our new repro machines soon, and in addition to comb and wire binding I'm thinking about getting a basic perfect binding machine. I've never actually used a perfect binding machine before, so I'm going purely on what I've seen on youtube. We have an electric stack...

    Wire Closing Machine Recommendations - Renz ECL360 or similar

    thanks for this. Streamwire doesn't work for us. Maximum no. of pages is far too low. And we also need to switch dies around and use different binding methods.

    Plastic comb-bind closing machine recommendations? GBC PB2600 or similar

    Hi Folks, We're getting two new Ricoh Machines equipped with GBC Ultra punch units with 2:1 wire, 3:1 wire and comb punch dies. I want to upgrade our existing (manual) plastic comb closer, as it sucks. It's a GBC DB28Pro and I don't like it as the pins don't align very well. (GBC DB28Pro Comb...

    Wire Closing Machine Recommendations - Renz ECL360 or similar

    Hi Folks, We're getting two new Ricoh Machines equipped with GBC Ultra punch units with 2:1 wire, 3:1 wire and comb punch dies. So we need to get a wire closing machine, as we've never done wire binding before (only comb). One of the machines that looks suitable is the Renz ECL 360 ( link: )...

    Screens for Fiery or just Remote Desktop?

    Good to know, thanks! It will be used in a repro printing from total flow via fiery but will also have users printing to it from output manager. Useful to know about the GW controller for when it gets setup.

    Screens for Fiery or just Remote Desktop?

    Are you saying they have a basic internal controller in addition to e.g. A fiery, rather than in place of it? I have that now on some KM bizhubs but curious if the C5310s I'm getting with E-47b external fierys have that too.

    konica 12000 VS Ricoh 9200

    Looked at the 9200 and was impressed but it's too much machine for our needs. Tech said to me "and it'll do 1m prints in a month if you need it. You'd be seeing us a lot that month, but it'll do it".

    Screens for Fiery or just Remote Desktop?

    Ah good to know it's not strictly necessary, thanks! Might still try and get some screens on wall if only because the speedometer and time remaining view looks cool lol!

    Screens for Fiery or just Remote Desktop?

    Hi folks, Have a bit of a dilemma as to whether to bother connecting new fiery controllers up to monitors and keyboard/mouse vs. just using remote desktop to access them from a computer on the other side of the room? Are there are any technical/practical restrictions if I set them up without...
