On Demand Machinery partners with Mohawk Fine Papers in manufacturing the Sidewinder™, an automated bindery system for producing Panoramic TRU-Flat® photo books.
Elizabeth, NJ, May 3, 2012—The ODM Sidewinder™ is an automated, on-demand bindery system that’s specifically designed for the Mohawk Panoramic line of i-Tone photo papers. Mohawk paired its exclusive i-Tone digital surface treatment with Tru-Flat® technology from Convertible Solutions to papers that are easy to bind with the new Sidewinder™ bindery system.
The Sidewinder™ eliminates the labor intense process of using hand-operated equipment to produce book blocks for lay-flat photo books. ODM engineers developed an automated, self-contained bindery system that scores, folds, and presses book blocks up to 1.5 inches thick.
The Sidewinder™ can produce up to 100 Panoramic photo book blocks per hour and is easy to operate with no make ready.
Maximum Book Size:
Open: 27” x 14.5” (675 mm x 362.5 mm);
Closed: 13.5” x 14.5” (337.5 mm x 362.5 mm) up to 1.5” (37.5 mm) thick
