On Demand Machinery LLC, Elizabeth, N.J., launched the next generation of the ODM Super Sewer XXL, an automatic side-sewing machine designed for ‘on-demand’ photo books up to one-inch (25 mm) thick. The Super Sewer XXL features the same Back Tack Technology, as in the Super Sewer. The machine does a reverse lock-stitch on the head and foot of the book block ensuring a very strong side sew which will not come apart like standard side sewn books normally do. The Super Sewer XXL pre-drills holes prior to thread stitching enabling the book block thickness up to one inch. The Super Sewer XXL can sew up to 400 books per hour and operates with a touch-screen LCD color control panel, high-speed drill station and vacuum drill waste removal system.
