King Printing/ADI Books installs short-run hard case book machine.

King Printing, a commercial printing company in Lowell, Mass. that prints and binds orders for specialty books in print runs under 10,000 pieces, has installed a new short-run hard case book binding machine.

The new DGR in-line casing book is one of five in use around the world, said Sid Chinai, president and owner of King Printing. The new equipment dramatically cuts makeready time. It also boasts a unique three-knife trimmer that allows an operator to make individual blade cuts when necessary.

“It quadruples my production capacity without increasing headcount,” Chinai said.

Two version with server motors. I like it without because there is less stuff to go round.

“The world of book publishing continues to evolve,” said company founder and president Siddarth Chinai. “There will always be print runs in the hundreds of thousands for best sellers, the reality of book publishing and binding is that the vast majority of titles are printed in batches of a few thousand. That is our specialty. That is what we focus on.

Chinai said that day-to-day operations are now overseen by his son Aditya Chinai, who serves as managing director of the company.

“We’ve been in business for 26 years and we’ve seen a lot of changes over that span. We are entering a new era in printing and book manufacturing. Slowly and steadily, the leadership of this company is transferring to a new generation,” he said.

As a book printer, King Printing can turn around work within two days to 18 days depending upon specifications for individual jobs. The company’s equipment list starts with Digital Printers, sheet fed and web heat set. Finished size capabilities include 5½ by 8½ inches, six by nine inches, seven by nine inches, seven by 10 inches and 8½ by 11 inches with variable cut off web which we can have a number of sizes without additional paper waste.

King Printing serves clients in Europe, the Far East and throughout North America.
