Finishing Automation Software.

Ultimate Bindery is an open JDF server that validates jobs and delivers finishing job tickets to automate make-ready on bindery equipment. It operates as an agent between the prepress and post-press equipment in order to eliminate manual setups. Ultimate Bindery will allow you to save time with a faster turnaround and eliminate waste with its hub of knowledge.

Ultimate Bindery is a standalone software solution designed to fill the gap between prepress and finishing. Ultimate Bindery can take any JDF imposed job and complete it with all the necessary parameters needed to automatically set up your finishing equipment such as perfect binder, saddle-stitcher, cutter, slitter-creaser, 3-knife cutter, etc. It allows to produce variable length products and in different quantities, on the fly with no manual make-ready. 

Ultimate Bindery is a hub of knowledge of more than 19 different finishing devices from eight manufacturers that automates in-line and near-line finishing equipment. It operates as a central location to validate that each job is built respecting the capabilities and constraints of the selected finishing equipment. These validations prevent errors and cut on waste since an alert is sent to the user for him to rectify the situation.
