Digital Print World

October 19, 2006

Our spy at the recent Digital Print World expo at London’s Earl’s Court reports that Canon was displaying a new set-up they call “One Book” – a digital printer combined with a perfect binding machine. The system requires the addition of a separate colour/litho printer for the covers, which are then fed into main set-up, but this doesn’t sound too difficult to automate, and can deliver about ten copies an hour according to our souce.

Also quoted is a report in Print Week magazine about a different printer which combines all these steps, and is being touted as a ‘coffee shop’ machine, echoing the comments by Bryan Appleyard we noted recently.

More news when we have it.
