As the name suggests, Line O Matic’s Spiro B340 book binding machine is capable of performing spiral binding as well as wiro binding.

Nirav Parikh, general manager (marketing) of Line O Matic, said, “The Spiro B340 has a simple and fast on-screen machine setup supported by HMI (human-machine interface).”

It has inline round cornering unit with options of wiro binding and spiral binding at the end of operations. The Spiro B340 has a maximum book size of 220mm to 330 mm for bound edge and 160mm to 295mm for unbound edge.

The upgraded version Bolt RB104 Max runs at a speed of 500m/min. Previous version of the machine had a maximum speed of 400m/min. Parikh said, “The Bolt RB104 Max uses a chamber doctor blade system for printing which results in fine and precise printing of the lines in the exercise book.” Bolt RB104 Max has a maximum book converting stroke of 80cycles/min with maximum ups of five-ups. It has two-colour flexo unit on each side.
