Although a relative newcomer to the mainstream bookbinding machinery sector, Risetec’s father-and-son management team represent the perfect partnership of experience and innovation. Chiarino Masuri has a background that includes working with some of the industry’s leading manufacturers at shop-floor, technical support and sales consultancy levels, where he formed an intimate understanding of the production and quality control issues that challenge customers as they work under constant pressure to ever tighter deadlines. His son, Diego, brings prodigious engineering insight and advanced CAD design skills to the equation and, together, they are responsible for some of the most significant developments in bookbinding technology of recent years.
These include the remarkable ONE•LINE> a fully automated binding and trimming line with seemingly endless capabilities that include perfect binding for soft covers, endpapering and backlining to produce book blocks for casing-in, pre-trimming and creasing of cover sheets (including with flaps), mark-reader verification of correct cover-to-book-block, self-setting 3-knife trimming for varying product runs, and much more. The Risetec ONE•LINE> allows binderies to achieve a faster return on investment as it expands their product range and/or replaces several older machines with one multi-purpose automated system. The SUPER D DeStacker is another of the Risetec innovations that promises to supercharge production efficiency as it brings a cost-effective and reliable solution to the persistent problem of de-stacking piles of pre-formed book blocks for individual downstream processing. The team at Risetec welcomes input from customers in the drive to track down and demolish production bottlenecks, wherever they occur.
