DX-70 Plus

Folding and sewing system with automatic feeding

It is the ideal solution for the production of sewn books and catalogues composed of 4-page and 8-page inserted signatures.
The possibility of inserting also 8 page signatures into the system gives the advantage of optimizing the used printing area of digital printers, drastically reducing production costs.

  • Only one operator is needed to manage the whole process

  • Possibility of feeding B2 sheets also on 707 mm side

  • Large size automatic sheets feeder

  • Perfect folding quality and compact sewn books

  • Quick and easy changeovers

The system is composed of the New Automatic Inserting and Cross Folding station mod. PB, equipped with one buckle folder, connected in line with the new FX-70 book sewing machine.

Gruppo mod.PLarge size sheets feeder

Smyth DX-70 Plus comes equipped with a large size automatic sheets feeder to run B2 sheets (landscape or portrait) up to 720 x 720 mm.

Gruppo mod.POne buckle folder

The system is supplied complete with one parallel buckle folder to produce 8-page signatures.
This feature allows to reduce the number of printing clicks, thus lowering the production costs of the sewn book compared to its conventional production in 4-page signatures, bypassing the cutting operation.

Gruppo mod.PInserting Station

It is positioned just after the folding unit. The inserting station enables combined collating of flat and folded sheets. Then, the sheets are aligned on both sides and transferred to the cross knife unit to perform the cross fold.

Gruppo mod.PCross Fold Unit

It is equipped with a brushless motor driven knife. This cross knife folds the inserted sheets by means of its vertical movement from bottom to top, preparing the signatures to be sewn. The resulting folding quality is excellent.

Gruppo mod.PPatented Indexing System

The Indexing System is composed of two pneumatically driven plates that press the signature spine again, before being transferred onto the fix saddle of the book sewing machine.
