Energy saver and energy save mode
Energy saver and energy save mode
Introduction
Turning on the energy saver (LED lights) enters the energy save mode and cuts electric
power in order to melt glue and adjust temperature. Use the energy saver when you want
to keep only the functions that transport paper (pass-through transfer) to the next device
operational, without performing binding.
The energy save mode also is entered automatically for the amount of time set from the
settings editor, when a prescribed amount of time has passed following completion of a
booklet, etc. To recover from the energy save mode, press the energy saver.
The time for entering the energy save mode following completion of a booklet can be set
from the settings editor.
Adjust the time for entering the energy save mode from the settings editor. Consult the
manual that comes with the printer for the procedure.
The energy saver LED indicates the following.
• Lit: Glue temperature adjustment is not being done, the binder is in energy save mode.
• Flashing: Glue temperature is being adjusted to the correct binding temperature.
• Off: Binding is possible, the glue is at the correct temperature for binding.
Energy save mode
1. Press the energy saver to enter the energy save mode.
The energy save LED will light and glue temperature adjustment will stop.
2. To recover from the energy save mode, press the energy saver again.
The energy save LED will flash and then go out, indicating binding can now be done.
#
NOTE
When you do binding settings on the printer, the Perfect Binder-B1 automatically
recovers from the energy save mode.

Finished sizes of booklets
Finished sizes of booklets
Introduction
This machine can bind various sizes of booklets.
The sizes of the finished booklets differ according to the cutting method. The following
table shows relations between sizes of the finished booklets and sizes of cover and body
pages / slip sheets.
Be sure to confirm the cutting range is within the available ranges shown below.
Top/bottom cutting range is the total of top cutting range and bottom cutting range.
therefore, half the value of top/bottom cutting range is equal to each value of the top
range and the bottom range.
Top/bottom cutting range (C1): 13 to 79 mm (0.52" to 3.11")
Foredge cutting range (C2): 6.5 to 49.5 mm (0.26" to 1.94")
Booklet thickness (D): less than 25 mm (1")

For good looking finished booklets, the maximum length of cover you can set is 487.7
mm. 487.7 mm includes the total of the following values.
Length of body pages / slip sheets x 2, maximum booklet thickness (25 mm), and maximum value of cover image placement adjustment (5 mm).
#
IMPORTANT
Be sure to use paper that is less than 297 mm wide when cutting in one direction or
when not cutting.
Cutting range
For good looking finished booklets, be sure to set the top/bottom cutting range and
foredge cutting range as follows.
#
Top/bottom cutting range
C1 = W2 - W
Cutting range is width of
cover minus width of finished booklet.
Foredge cutting range.
If length of cover is longer
than the length of body
pages / slip sheets.
C2 = (L2 - D) / 2 - L
Cutting range is length of
cover minus the booklet
thickness, divided by two.
And the length of the finished booklet is subtracted
from the result.
Foredge cutting range.
If length of cover is shorter
than the length of body
pages / slip sheets.
C2 = L1 - L
Cutting range is length of
body pages / slip sheets
minus length of finished
booklet.

Reduce frequent paper jams or errors
Reduce frequent paper jams or errors
Introduction
Frequent paper jams, errors or defect in binding such as follow can mean that paper is
curled or paper weight is out of available range for this machine.
• Defect in attaching the glue.
• Unequal cutting size.
• Folded bonding area in corner of inserted paper.
If paper jams, errors or defect in binding occur frequently, refer to the instructions described below to confirm paper curl and perform the curl correction, or see ‘Specifications’
on page 90 to confirm available paper weight of this machine. Also before performing
perfect binding, we recommend you to check the curl state of the used paper.
• Loaded from the sheet inserter.
Confirm the paper does not curl. If paper is curled, be sure to remove the curl before
loading it into the sheet inserter again.
• Loaded from the printer.
If the paper which is loaded from the printer is curled, follow the procedure below to
perform curl correction.
Reduce frequent paper jams or errors
1. Select the paper source in the printer used for perfect binding.
2. Make copies without performing perfect binding and discharge the paper to the finisher.
3. Confirm the curl is in the range of specified value.
The specified values are as follows:
• Height of curl (1): -10 to +10 mm.
• Length of curl (2): More than 50mm
#
NOTE
If downward curl is measured, it may cause incorrect value since the curl is negated.
Be sure to measure upward curl.
84
Chapter 4 - Troubleshooting
Reduce frequent paper jams or errors
4. If the curl state of paper exceeds specified value, adjust the curl correction to make it an
appropriate range.
You can adjust the curl correction for a specific paper in the Settings Editor, section
'Media management', option 'Printer adjustment'.
#
NOTE
If the curl can not be corrected within the specified range by following the adjustment
above, or paper jams, errors or defects in bindings occur frequently, load other paper
type into the paper source.
