Worldcolor announces new high-speed digital ink jet press and bind system for short-run books
MONTRÉAL—Worldcolor recently announced a partnership with Kodak and Muller Martini to create the FastBook Digital system. The system integrates and automates book prepress, digital printing and finishing in-line to achieve a seamless files-on/books-out solution.

According to a company press release the system can produce up to 1,000 books an hour in colour and black and white. It can also be configured in future applications to produce versioned and variable magazines, catalogues and high-end direct mail.

The system will use the Kodak Prosper 5000XL Press and the integrated Muller Martini SigmaLine finishing line.

The first FastBook Digital installation will be in Worldcolor's Dubuque, Iowa, facility and is expected to be operational in the fourth quarter of this year
