Modular Design

Booklet Maker – the simplest configuration includes the Booklet Maker and output tray to provide a simple solution to producing hand fed sets – stapling, folding and stacking.

Face Trimmer – the addition of the trimmer removes the shingled effect on the face of the folded document and provides a clean document edge.

Squarefold – this unit adds a square folded spine for a professional, perfect bound look to the finished book.

Suction Feeder – VF602 Suction Feeder allows feeding of pre-collated sheets directly into the Booklet Maker offering an automated solution.

Hand feeding – output from any print device can be manually fed through the booklet maker, face trim and squarefold modules.
