Noel Podlich, bindery manager at Special Binding says, “We already provide a wide range of finishing services, from perfect binding and saddle stitching to thread sewing, and the new Autobond Mini has allowed us to offer a fast turnaround of work laminated to a very high standard. We’ve already used the Mini to laminate a range of covers and it has performed extremely reliably.”
Podlich continues, “We particularly like the Heidelberg feeder, which enables accurate feeding of a variety of stock at high speeds, normally 8,000 B1 sheets an hour. With run lengths from 100 to 50,000 copies, the ability to quickly make-ready on the laminator is also important. The Mini 105 TPHS has proved to be straightforward to use and we now have three trained operators.”
Special Binding was formed 35 years ago and employs 20 people. Most of its customers are sheet-fed printers in the Brisbane area.
Graph-Pak, which represents Autobond throughout Australia, has won a string of orders for Autobond laminators during 2009 as well as winning several orders at the recent PacPrint exhibition.
