Plockmatic 500 and 350

Plockmatic 500 & 350

The Plockmatic 500/350 is a modular inline booklet making solution for centralized reproduction departments and commercial print providers – large and small. Customers can choose from a range of cost-effective options to support their application requirements. The system is packed with a host of unique technologies that deliver finished books with quality to match today’s printing systems.

Customers are demanding more media versatility from digital print. The Plockmatic 500/350 is designed from the ground up to work with today’s coated, uncoated and textured paper stocks.

Plockmatic works closely with print engine manufacturers and workflow partners to ensure the closest possible integration of the booklet making system. This supports ease of use and allows operators of different skill levels to get the most out of the entire printing system.


Our Latest Color Graphical Interface.

Operators are now guided through job setup with detailed graphics that can provide step-by-step guidance. Getting professional results using all the system’s features has never been easier.


Two booklet makers for up to 50 or 35 sheet booklets.

The Plockmatic 500 can staple and fold up to 50 sheets which creates booklets of up to 200 pages. The Plockmatic 350 is capable of 35 sheets creating 140 page booklets.

The optional cover feeder, integrated into the booklet maker, provides another pick point for pre-printed covers. Allows easy blending of color covers with monochrome content.


Small footprint. Large impact. 

The Plockmatic RCT Rotate Crease Trim unit provides professional looking, full bleed trimmed and creased booklets on the Plockmatic 500 and 350 booklet makers. It also increases productivity by allowing smaller sheet sizes to be printed in the most efficient orientation.


Get the professional look.

The BookFold module adds the finishing touch with a square folded edge and printable spine.

Gives booklets the professional look of a perfect bound book.


The final step to a great looking booklet.

The Face Trimmer module trims the side opposite to the spine eliminating the “shingle” effect that occurs with thicker booklets. The module can also cut the width down to 105 mm for larger sheet sizes, further broadening application support to your customers.
