Installation of a Muller Martini Publica PRO12 binding system is currently underway at Sheridan’s Versailles, KY facility and is expected to be fully operational by year end. This highly automated system boasts a robust 12,000 cycles per hour and features a 24-pocket gathering line, end-sheet tipping and lining station, EVA and PUR glue application, trimmer, and stacker.

Another perfect binding system, also a Muller Martini Publica PRO12, has been installed at the Grand Rapids, MI facility and is ramping up operations. Additional features of this binder include a thin paper adapter and semi-automatic cartoners, along with being equipped for two-up work.

“The Book Data Center integration in these systems will further streamline operations, allowing for job-specific data collection that optimizes machine setup and operation,” remarked Paul Loy, Senior Vice President of Operations at Sheridan. “The cutting-edge enhancements of both binders are poised to elevate production efficiency and product quality.”

The purchase of these new perfect binding systems was realized through strategic investments from parent company CJK Group, which supports Sheridan’s continued commitment to delivering unparalleled quality and service to its customers.
