On September 20-21 there was Meccanotecnica Open House in Bergamo, Italy.
The highlight of the event was the digital print finishing line with the new UNIVERSE, the “sheet-fed” automatic book folding and sewing unit, and the new TRIMMING, Meccanotecnica’s three-knife trimmer.
The UNIVERSE, market leader solution for high quality digital book production, was showcased directly connected to INLINE, back gluing line, for hard cover book preparation and paperback production.
The line was complemented by the new three-knife trimmer, allowing high quality book finishing with fully automated quick set-up without changing parts. The unit featured a special and exclusive device for the front cutting of books with folded-in flaps.
The showroom was completed with Uniplex-asterPRO, gathering and sewing line, the ideal solution for quick and efficient book production. In this regard, a new version of asterPRO was showcased as a worldwide premier.
During Open House 2018 the guests also visited Bergamo, Verona and Sirmione for walking tours and enjoued the paintings by Pisanello, Botticelli, Bellini, Mantegna and the other in Accademia Carrara.
At the end of the event Meccanotecnica prepared a celebratory dinner.
