Automated production of silver halide photo based photo books has presented challenges to imaging service providers. Most traditional bookbinding techniques are not suitable for photos produced on conventional silver halide paper. This paper describes a comprehensive, highly automated workflow for the production of case-bound books made with real photo paper. The implementation of a unique gluing machine is the key enabling component to this new system. The gluing machine is supported by a set of equipment that addresses all the production steps required to deliver high quality photo books at high-volume levels.
