Equipment

We utilize the most current technology in our industry. Our state-of-the-art equipment allows us to provide our clients with high-quality products on time and on budget.

It should go without saying that our equipment wouldn't make much of a difference if we didn't have equally adept manpower behind it. At National Lithograph, our pressmen are skilled veterans and true industry professionals. Like any good tradesmen, supply them with the right tools and you've got a winning combination.

While our larger press equipment can handle projects of virtually any size, we also employ smaller equipment options for the less demanding, but equally important, smaller jobs. Choosing the right equipment for each task is not only more efficient, but is also more cost effective - a savings which we pass on to our clients.

We realize that most people could care less about what model of press or cutting machine we use, so long as they receive what they ordered. Still, we can't help being proud of our toys. Once you see how great they make you look, we hope you'll be proud of them, too.

Rosback 318 Bindery System

Rosback 318 Bindery System

Our fully automatic saddle binder collates, stitches, and includes a 3-knife trim module to deliver professionally finished books at production speeds. These modular systems were engineered for ease of make-ready, operation and changeover. We print multiple signature impositions, fold the sheets into sigs (4, 8, 12, 16, 24, 32 pages), and are able to achieve runs ranging from 500 to 32,000 books per day.

This Rosback Saddle Binding System utilizes three integrated processes...

FEEDING:
The 706 6-Pocket Feeder handles individual signatures or pre-inserted signatures. The stations hold a deep pile of stock and can be loaded on-the-run. Vacuum suckers and air blast assure smooth and accurate feeding.

STITCHING:
Our system employs two Bostitch stitching heads and includes Stitch-Tech technology, which detects any book missing a signature and diverts it to the stitcher delivery table without interrupting production.

TRIMMING:
Rosbackā€™s single book, shear action 3-knife trimming is the most accurate in the industry and is able to cover a wide range of finished sizes. Each knife has its own built-in clamp, assures a square 3-edge trim.
