Variable Format | Variable Page Count | Variable Signatures

MBO’s Variable Finishing Technology takes finishing farther than any other solution on the market. With the ability to reconfigure on-the-fly based off of job data from a code, MBO’s Fully Variable Book Block Production Solution gives printers the unprecedented capability to produce different digitally printed books in succession. This means that books of different formats and signatures, such as 6×9 inch 12-page signature and 8 1/2×11 inch 16-page signature, can be printed and finished off of the same roll.
