“WOW! On Demand Machinery just drove 22 hours with an ODM Super Sewer™ machine in the back of their truck without even a deposit from us.”

Robert Kelly, President

Ruth Kelly Studio (RKS) needed the Super Sewer™ ASAP to finish a job that was too big for their existing machines. ODM delivered, installed, and trained the bindery department how to operate the Super Sewer™ within 48 hours of placing the order on Friday, May 17, 2013. By Sunday RKS was up and running and sewing books. The job was delivered on time the following day on Monday, May 20, 2013.

With the ODM Super Sewer™ Ruth Kelly Studio no longer has to worry about gluing books the ‘old-fashioned way’.

“ODM has been crucial in helping us build more consistent and more durable books thanks to the Super Sewer™.”

Kevin Cheyne, Production Manager

The ODM Super Sewer™ is an automatic side sewing machine designed for producing ‘on-demand’ photo books from wallet to tabloid and up to half inch thick. The Super Sewer™ features Back Tack Technology™. Simply put, the machine does a reverse lock-stitch on the head and foot of the book block ensuring a very strong side sew which will not come apart like standard side-sewn or PUR bound books normally do. The Super Sewer™ can sew up to 600 books per hour and is easy to operate with a touch screen LCD color control panel. CE approved.
