City e

The automatic perfect binder

The City e is the ideal perfect binder for industrial finishing- and printing companies. Frequent job changes along with high productivity, is the daily business for this automatic perfect binder. The outstanding feature of the City e is the intelligent combination of motorized and manual adjustments.

All main and important functions are adjustable via Navigator by motor control; seldom-used adjustments can be set manually in a precise and reproducible manner. This makes the City e an automatic perfect binder with excellent cost/performance ratio.

With a total length of about 6.3 metre the City e belongs to the most compact perfect binders in its class. When inline connected with gathering machines, the available 90°- or 180° configuration allow users to install this perfect binder with high specification in very limited spaces. Despite its compactness the City e features components which guarantee a high level of product quality, i.e. 2. pressing station for spine forming.
