DigiBook 450
A new dimension to PUR Binding.
Four times stronger than hot melt.
PUR is the strongest, most flexible binding adhesive available and offers
several additional advantages over other binding methods. When inks,
coatings or digital print toners are present in the spine area these can
compromise the strength of typical hotmelt perfect binding. PUR is
resistant to this and will form a super-strong bond with all weights and
finishes of paper stocks. In addition PUR works well with synthetic and
recycled-content stock.
The DigiBook 450 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 where the spine and side gluing is applied by a slot
applicator for the utmost binding quality and accuracy.
Key product features:
• 450 books per hour
• Touch screen operation complete with automatic format change.
• Pneumatic opening and closing of clamp
• Binding length (spine) from 3.93” up to 17.71”
• Spine thickness from 0.03” to 1.96”
• Spine preparation by sophisticated milling device
• Automatic cleaning and sealing of the glue head
• Retractable milling
• Patented hermetically sealed PUR application system for spine and side gluing with automatic glue cut-off
• Unique angled worksurface
• Automatic cover feeder
• Automatic delivery and stacking of finished books
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.
The PUR glue is applied on the book spine and on the sides by
independent glue slots, each of which can be adjusted to give the best
possible spine and side glue results. The quantity is determined by the
height of the applicator and the pressure applied, thus allowing any kind
of book to be bound with maximum ease.
In addition to PUR binding, the 450 can be used for hotmelt applications
with the optional holt melt fuser unit.
The nipping press is a pneumatic system with adjustable lateral pressing
force. Pressing time is also adjustable from the panel with a range from
0 to 30 seconds. The press height varies from 0 to 0.05” for optimal
squaring of the spine and quality of glue application.
In addition to the automatic cover feeder, the DigiBook 450 is also
equipped with an automatic book delivery and stacking section to
maintain output speeds and reduce handling of the bound books.
