Panoramic TRU-Flat® Photo Books
Mohawk has paired its exclusive i-Tone digital surface
treatment with Convertible Solutions’ TRU-Flat® binding
technology to create this groundbreaking panoramic format.
ODM Sidewinder™ scores, folds, and presses Mohawk Panoramic papers allowing beautifully printed images to flow seamlessly across the fold, giving digital printers of all sizes the ability to produce high-value, high-impact books and bound products without a gutter.
Grippers align and feed paper into Sidewinder™ bindery system to be scored, folded and pressed.
Finished book blocks come off conveyor belt and are stacked and ready for the casing-in process.
