One of the world’s largest book printers and bindery has recently installed the first Kolbus DA 370 casemaker in North America. The machine was installed in November and is already producing exquisite religious books.


The DA 370 is the newest addition to the award-winning line of casemakers produced by Kolbus out of Rahden, Germany. The investment raises the company’s value to their customers and provides them with the prestige of being the only company in North America with the ability to produce product at this speed and of this fine quality. It will also allow the company to expand production capabilities and offer additional options to their customers. 


This newly released machine has been created for the automatic production of book covers, photo book covers, folders, posters, calendar back covers or games, producing product at speeds up to 65 cycles/min. Optimized for digital printing products with variable center strip widths of continuous production, the DA 370 casemaker can be integrated into the digital workflow or provide full performance as a stand-alone machine. Features such as integrated cardboard cutting, automated format cutting to board width and center-strip width, scanning benefits, and integrated cloth corner cutting provide this company with the value needed to stand out as a premiere book bindery and manufacturer.
