Watkiss says the new bookletmaker is ideal for short run manuals, magazines, programmes, academic journals, financial reports and education materials.

Designed for short run work, the device is billed as an ‘all-in-one’ booklet maker that also includes face trimming and square spine forming.

The PSQ160-WH can handle a plethora of media in input sizes ranging from 200 x 200mm, up to 370 x 620mm. Finished booklet sizes can range from 120 x 78mm to 370 x 305mm.

Paul Attew, sales director at Watkiss, comments: “It is a very practical solution for low volume digital printed jobs, where ease of set-up and flexible media sizes are important - and where you can be confident that book quality is never compromised”.

Key features on the new machine include a tile-based user interface with touch and swipe functionality, pre-set standard sizes and the ability to store custom job sizes.

The PSQ160-WH also produces SquareBack books that lie flat, stack and allow printing on the spine, while users can opt to fit the device with the optional P2T Side Trimmer that trims the top and bottom of the book for full-bleed colour applications.

In addition, users will benefit from a zero-maintenance and low impact stapling mechanism with moving clinches for flat, well-formed staples over the full range from two to 40 sheets.
