The DigiBook 450 perfect binding machine is ideally suited to litho and digital printers who require medium to long runs of PUR perfect bound books to a professional standard.
This innovative machine is equipped with a patented closed gluing system, the spine and side gluing is applied by a slot applicator for the utmost quality and accuracy.
The DigiBook 450 comes as standard with an automatic cover feeder to give increased production of up to 450 books per hour. The cover feeder can also be equipped with an optional scoring attachment which will eliminate the need to pre-crease covers.
The machine is easy to use, even by non-specialised personnel, and operated via a touch screen panel with icon graphics that allow the programming of all precision operations in just a few seconds. There are a thousand alphanumeric memories available, which enable repeat jobs to be saved for later recall, thus providing totally automatic set up.
An additional feature of the DigiBook 450 is the new and innovative glue application system which is covered by no less than seven international patents. The application is direct and hermetically sealed, without odour or toxic fume emissions, and does not require extraction fans. It is possible to set different temperatures for the glue melting tank and the applicator giving greater flexibility and glue life.
Another feature of this applicator is it can be cleaned and sealed automatically from the touch screen allowing for minimum glue wastage.
