Quick Overview

The online PowerSquare™ is a streamlined booklet making system for high production environments. It enables you to print and publish on demand with the industry's leading digital printers.

The online PowerSquare is a streamlined booklet making system for high production environments. It enables you to print and publish on demand with the industry’s leading digital printers.

Full integration with the printer optimises performance and productivity. Printed sheets are delivered from the printer to the PowerSquare via a connecting bridge that automatically rotates the sheets into the correct orientation for booklet making to give a professional finish every time.

This system is designed for high reliability and ease of use, with the ability to handle long runs without any operator intervention. Its ergonomic layout means that the finished books are delivered close to the normal operator position, saving space, time and operator fatigue.

With the optional book stacker, the system will run for up to an hour unattended. The high capacity trim bin can be emptied without stopping the machine, and stitch wire refills are reduced by the use of a 15kg wire-­reel that will produce approximately 130,000 books.

The online PowerSquare is the most versatile online booklet maker, from folding a single sheet to making 224 page booklets; and it can also be hand­fed for occasional use.
