About us

Company details

GP2 Technologies, Inc. is an OEM of casemaking machinery based in Bow, N.H., USA. With installations across six continents, GP2 Technologies is well recognized as a world leader of casemakers for on-demand, short run, and entry level automation of all types of casemade products. From small digital printing companies to industry leaders, our many successful customers are revolutionizing the way books are produced.

The entry level EC-3 Autocase is an economical altnerative to more manual, less efficient methods of casemaking.  The EC-3 features zero make-ready and a production rate of up to 180 covers per hour.  The automation of the most criticle casemaking functions combined with the high quality that GP2 is noted for, results in the best solution for low volume short run hardcover production.

Our semi-automatic SC-3 Autocase casemaker features zero time or adjustments for size changes and a production rate up to 300 covers per hour. It has earned a solid reputation as a reliable, versatile, and cost effective means to automate casemaking for runs of one (1) and up.  The SC-3 has become the world-wide standard for low to medium volume production of POD hardcover books.

The fully automatic AC-20 Autocase casemaker offers the shortest, simplist make-ready for short run casemaking and a production rate of up to 1,200 covers per hour.  Features include bar-code driven size changes resulting in the most efficient means for production of covers in short to medium run counts. 

The Cover-1 System will be shown live at Drupa 2016 to demonstrate the world's most efficient and automated solution for POD hardcover book production.  The SC-3 casemaker is fully integrated with automated board and spine timming and on-demand delivery of materials for casemaking.  Every cover may be a different height and width, spine can be flex or rigid, and all types of cover materials may be used.

NEW for Drupa, 2016 - see the CT-1 Cover Trimmer live!  The CT-1 automatically feeds and trims standard size press sheets to prcise size required for casemaking.  The timming is accurately registered to each variable image for true POD hardcover production.  The CT-1 is the next step in automating "one-off" production of hardcover books, along with the Cover-1 casemaking system.

All GP2 machines utilize our proven technology with an emphasis on quality and reliability. There is simply no better means to produce covers in the short run than with GP2 Technologies.
