Zechini Gra-FOR s.r.l (Booth 4652) is introducing X-Case, a complete modular hard cover finishing system for digitally-printed short-run titles. X-Case consists of the Roby Junior 2 case-maker, X-Case and X-Case Plus for casing-in, the Special 85 book press and the Cimatic book block joint forming module. The system produces hard cover cases, performs casing-in with the book block, completes pressing of the cased-in book and produces a finished, cased-in book with the joint formed.
The complete X-Case system is capable of producing up to over 150 finished hard cover books per hour. Individual modules can produce more components. X-Case takes up little floor space, and operators can be trained on the system relatively quickly. X-Case can also produce calendars, game boards, display easels and four and five-piece cases.
