University of Portsmouth Invests in New Perfect Binding Machine

Posted on - 17th August 2017

The University of Portsmouth have an in-house print room which services their students onsite. As demand has continued to increase however, the University required a solution to streamline their print and finish capabilities. Some binds were required up to 50mm at a time and it was vital that good quality binds were produced for dissertations and theses. This is where The Finishing Point stepped in.

The Challenge

  • To enhance in-house capability
  • To provide a high speed, accurate and reliable solution for high volumes of work
  • To supply a good quality perfect binding machine to suit the necessary education budget

The Solution

The Finishing Point have worked alongside the university for a number of years supplying consumables for other print finishing machines on site such as wire binding supplies, digital laminating foil and film.  As a result of our long-standing relationship, the University approached us for a solution to their ongoing requirements. After providing a demonstration of the product, the University opted for the new Obeli Easibinder 800 A3 Perfect Binding Machine.

The Outcome

  • Faster, accurate production 
  • In-house on site production - no outsourcing required
  • 350 books can be produced per hour - That's 350 happy students
  • Binds up to 50mm / A3 size finished books could be produced
  • We're left with one happy customer and very happy students!
