Sharjah based Eiffel Printing Press has invested AED 275000/- for the perfect binder from Welbound - 2000 OB 6 Clamp Perfect Binder.

Explaining the reason behind their investment, Kurian Thomas, MD of Eiffel Printing Press said: “Welbound 2000 OB is 6 clamp perfect binding machine having running speed of 2000 books per hr. Welbound is well known Indian brand in UAE for binding related, value for  money machines as compared to other brands. They have a branch office here in UAE, so the after sales support what we get is very satisfactory. In a competitive market like the UAE, one must be updated with all the modern technologies and facilities to satisfy the customer needs on their time.”

Explaining the useful features of the machine, Thomas adds: “This machine is specially designed to handle large format books sized 440mm X 300mm.It has three roller gluing system with reverse spinner, calibrated head and tail cut off to avoid adhesive squeeze out, separate side gluing station with tank and gluing disc is an added advantage. Automatic cover feeder with opening margin adjustable creasing facility is also inbuilt which makes this machine a user friendly one.”

Commenting on their expansion plans, Thomas said: “For the next five years, we will concentrate in buying new machines as we have to be well equipped to face the challenges. Updating the infrastructure is another key factor. The main challenge this industry is facing is the heavy decline in the traditional print media. The digitalisation everywhere in everything has brought the commercial printers on the brink.”
