A new Horizon SPF-200L booklet maker is proving a hit with both customers and staff at Sydney’s Twin Loop Binding and new orders are pouring in.

“It’s a fantastic piece of equipment and we’ve had very positive reactions from our customers who are excited to have a one-stop store for all of their finishings,” said Twin Loop director Wayne Rubin. “The decision to buy the booklet maker really was a no brainer for us. We needed to upgrade our equipment if we wanted to take our business to the next level.  We bought it from Curries just before PrinteX and when the new machine arrived here at our premises in Macquarie Park our staff were just glowing.  It really was priceless.  They were able to see that the business was growing and that we’re heading into an exciting future.  We’ve been in business now for 22 years and we’re proud of what we’ve achieved.

“The booklet maker been up and running now for just one month but we’ve already had 14 new jobs on the machine during that time.  We’re now able to offer landscape saddle stitching jobs and loop stitchings and the feedback has been very positive.  We can handle small and large jobs, all with a very fast turnaround.”

Rubin says that great service and support provided by the Curries team had ensured a seamless installation. “We’ve been a loyal Curries customer for more than eight years and their support team is second to none.  They set up a maintenance program, their techs are always available to help and advise, and they provide the best training and service, which gives our staff a lot of confidence.”

Twin Loop Binding moved into its new 700sqm in Macquarie Park last year and is now negotiating to take over the offices next door.   Twelve staff members produce a turnover of just under $2m a year, with the manufacturing division, including the bindery and book binding work, driving most of the growth.

The Horizon SPF-200L produces landscape format booklets at speeds up to 3,500 booklets per hour.  The SPF-200L also features improved format flexibility including 8.5” x 11” landscape capabilities ideal for producing landscape brochures or calendars. A fully-automated set-up through the 10.4” colour touch screen ensures user-friendly operation for professional quality booklet production. The system can accept digitally printed output from any of HOF high-speed sheet feeders and can also serve conventional offset print needs when combined with a collating tower.
