|Our newest innovation in gathering and sewing The SMYTH mod. “CONCEPT” comprised of a Gathering machine with GATHERING MACHINE WITH HORIZONTAL SIGNATURE LOADING connected in line to one or more Smyth book sewing machines. This ergonomic simply designed system is operator friendly with easy loading of signatures to each sewing machine and the unloading of sewn book block piles. The ease in this operation gives the possibility to transfer the stacks of sewn book blocks to a pallet either manually or, in alternative, an automatic palletizing system .
Also the patented design of the Smyth Gathering Machine gives the space saving advantage that each pocket of the gatherer can be used with one or two signatures depending on the size. In example the gatherer can run in the same pocket one signature with a size up to 640 mm or, in alternative, two signatures in a sequential order having a size head-tail up to 320 mm. So the size of the complete line is very reduced.
The “CONCEPT” line can also have a patented system (optional) that gives the possibility to do the automatic coupling in “COME AND GO” of the printed signatures and eliminates the operator cost; moreover the operating capacity of the gatherer is double. The flexibility and earning capacity of the “CONCEPT “ line give also a completely computerzsed system for the control and the SET-UP of the complete line reducing the staff interventions at minimum.
