Versatile machine binds books on demand. Festo's DFM cylinder provides high clamping forces and stability needed to secure books as they're bound. Flow controls and quick-exhaust valves ensure high-speed actuation. CPV-18 valve manifolds house fieldbus nodes and the valves that extend and retract cylinders. The Ultrabind Plus is a versatile machine for on-demand and short-edition binding. The automatic, self-adjusting machine requires no operator setup and binds books of varying sizes and thicknesses. Web sites, blogs, E-books, and other digital media have some pundits predicting the imminent demise of the printed word. But the fact is, digital technology may lead to books than ever in print. That's due to the rise of on-demand printing. Traditionally, old, out-of print books didn't offer sufficient sales potential to warrant offset printing in volume, and offset costs
