Elizabeth, NJ—On Demand Machinery (ODM), which manufactures a complete line of on-demand hardcover binding machinery, is helping yearbook publishers drive their business with its Super Sewer.
Ruth Kelly Studio (RKS) needed the Super Sewer ASAP to finish a job that was too big for their existing machines. ODM delivered and installed the machine and trained the bindery department to operate the Super Sewer within 48 hours of the order being placed. In just days, RKS was up and running and sewing books, and the job was delivered on time.
“ODM has been crucial in helping us build more consistent and more durable books thanks to the Super Sewer,” said Kevin Cheyne, production manager at Ruth Kelly Studio. RKS is a full-service, family-owned and operated photography studio/lab and yearbook printer in Muskogee, Oklahoma. It currently services the photographic and printing needs of 100+ school districts and continues to grow. It has expanded services for elementary and middle school yearbooks and has become recognized in Oklahoma for quality photographic and yearbook services.
The ODM Super Sewer is an automatic side-sewing machine for producing on-demand photo books, from wallet size to tabloid, and up to a half inch thick. The Super Sewer features Back Tack technology; the machine does a reverse lock-stitch on the head and foot of the book block, ensuring a strong side sew that will not come apart like standard side-sewn or PUR bound books normally do, the company notes. The Super Sewer can sew up to 600 books per hour and is designed for easy operation with a touch-screen LCD color control panel. odmachinery.com
