On Demand Machinery installs first Super Sewer™ XXL at Momento Pro.
Momento Pro, Australia’s leading professional quality photo book producer has upgraded their bindery department with the world’s first installation of the ODM Super Sewer™ XXL.
Momento Pro produced hard back; case-bound photo books in the traditional manner using a sewing machine to side sew book blocks prior to drawing on the cover. The sewing process was done on an ODM Super Sewer™. Since the launching of a new wide-format photo book meant the book had to be sewn by hand using a paper drill and a manual sewing machine. After consulting with Kevin Dyras of Currie Group, ODM’s Australian based distributor, the decision was made to install the Super Sewer™ XXL.
Working closely with Momento Pro, ODM designed and developed the XXL machine, which was installed in November 2011. A few modifications were made after the installation to accommodate some unique photo paper stocks. The speed and accuracy of the Super Sewer™ XXL has exceeded expectations. Needless to say, the original Super Sewer™ has not been used since Christmas. Momento Pro has been taking advantage of the larger format producing both A3 landscape and portrait formats up to 1” (25 mm) thick. Prior to installation of the XXL, these books would have been drilled and sewn by hand.
“Our target market is the professional photographer and discerning ‘prosumer’.
We strive for the highest possible quality product and guarantee 100% satisfaction to our clients.” states Geoff Hunt the Managing Director of Momento Pro.
