RS Superior Bindery Services of Scarborough, Ontario, added a new Petratto Cordoba system, providing the ability to finish heavy boards or plastics, and laminations, as well as cross-grain and toner-based print – without using a die-cutting machine.
RS Superior Bindery, owned by Ron St. Cyr and Stan Prato, was founded in 1996 and today, operating out of a 30,000-square-foot facility, provides a range of finishing services like cutting, folding, high-speed tipping, gluing (fugitive, remoisten and spine-pasting), saddle-stitching and die-cutting, among other applications. RS Superior Bindery is also a Certified Canada Post Direct Marketing Specialist.
The new Petratto Cordoba, RS Superior Bindery explains, incorporates a traditional folding section with a knife and matrix-creasing unit. The folder has a modified roller configuration and fold-plate angle, which helps to eliminate cracking and curls when working with heavy stocks. The machine can crease a stock range from 80 to 600 gr. (4- to 30-point) and fold stock within 140 to 600 gr. (6- to 30-point). The system can crease A4-size sheets at 14.000 cycles per hour.
A standard folding unit can be added to the Cordoba when working with lightweight stocks. Other available attachments for the Cordoba include perforating, punching and gluing, as well as tools for producing plough folds when creating presentation folders.
