Tecnau’s Libra 800 has won a European Digital Press Association (EDP) Award 2018 in the category finishing/enhancement as the best book-on-demand postpress solution during Fespa Global Print Expo 2018 in Berlin.
“Tecnau Libra 800 was the choice as it enables continuous production of single copy books without manual adjustments from roll to finished book at speeds up to 800 books per hour,” said Stefano De Marco, sales and marketing director at Tecnau.
The perfect binding system allows printers to produce short-run digitally printed books, catalogs and magazines. The highly modular and configurable solution supports on-the-fly changeover in book size at speed, ensuring full integrity control page by page and exact matching between book block and cover.
The reliable binding system has been an evolving and growing solution, widening the array of possible applications and driving efficiency and intelligence throughout the complete production workflow. The EDP Award 2018 is a great honor as it recognizes the distinct advantages, technological innovation and application flexibility that the Tecnau Libra 800 book-on-demand solution offers to its users.
