Edmonton, Alberta, Canada – October 1, 2009 – Libramation, a leader in providing library automation equipment technology, RFID and ergonomic work environments to libraries, announced today a breakthrough in library robotic material processing technology.

The introduction of the MEK Series Book Binding machines and the TIM Plasticization machines offer significant time and labor savings for Libraries and Book Jobber companies for small or large runs. The Book Binding systems are available in a variety of models that can create new hard-covers for small to large quantities of books, or re-binding accommodating even small custom orders.

The process of making books shelve ready is a time consuming process. The Combi-Plast Plastifying Machine is specially designed for PVA self-adhesive foil, and is capable to have six different size rolls for the efficient usage of foil for each size of books. These are available in various models as the perfect solution for Libraries that process various quantities of different size books on a daily bases; the time cycle per book is only six seconds.

"Managing the processing of materials to make them shelve ready has always been a time consuming and labor intensive challenge," said Frank Mussche, Libramation’s President. "With the MEK and the TIM systems, libraries can ease the workload for staff and improve turn around time for new materials. Book Binding and Processing Robotics Technology comes at a particularly good time for many libraries who are reassessing the cost factors of outsourcing verses in-house processing in America’s libraries."

Once again Libramation brings the appropriate new technologies to the library community, this time through it’s partnership with NBD of the Netherlands who have manufactured these systems for many Libraries throughout Europe, and are using all these machine on a daily bases to provide shelve ready product to all the Dutch Libraries.
