Sitma have developed WM10 Book covering machine so that it can produce different sizes of protective covers with little adjustment. The dimensions of the cover can be entered into the machine either manually, via the company network or by means of an additional optional system that recognises automatically the dimensions of the book to be covered.
It also allows every book to be personalised with individual data, which can be printed on the protective cover. The information can include such items as:
- First name and surname of the user / customer
- Title of the book
- Logo or picture (on request)
- Barcode, OCR, Datamatrix
