2. Perfect Binding
What is Perfect Binding?
Perfect binding is a binding method that applies heated glue to printed sheets to
form a book block, encloses the book block in a cover sheet, and trims away excess paper to create neat edges.
BER011S
You can specify the perfect binding settings using the display panel or the printer
driver.
To specify the settings using the display panel, see “Specify the Settings on the
Display Panel”.
To specify the settings using the printer driver, see “Using the Printer Driver to
Specify Perfect Binding Settings”.
Important
❒ Book blocks must be loaded in the K orientation, and cover sheets must be
loaded in L orientation. For details, see “Supported Paper Types and Sizes”.
❒ If the machine is being used for perfect binding, some functions might not be
available. If another job cannot be performed on the machine, wait until the
perfect binding job is complete, and then try again.
15
Perfect Binding
Note
❒ When specifying perfect binding, make sure that the number of printed sheets
is not smaller than 10.
❒ Perfect binding is possible within the following limitations:
• Book block size
10 - 200 sheets (paper weight: 64.0 - 80.0 g/m2, 17.1 - 21.3 lb.)
10 - 150 sheets (paper weight: 81.0 - 105.0 g/m2, 21.5 - 27.9 lb.)
10 sheets (paper weight: 106.0 - 163.0 g/m2, 28.2 - 43.3 lb., slip sheets only)
• Spine thickness
Up to 23 mm (0.9 inch)
❒ If the spine of the book block exceeds maximum thickness (23 mm) during binding,
the machine stops. Printed sheets are left inside the binder and must be removed
by hand.
❒ Perfect bound booklets are delivered to the lower left tray. Up to seven booklets
(of 100-sheet book blocks) can be stacked on the tray.
❒ The glue requires time to heat (six and a half minutes maximum) before binding can begin. To begin binding quickly, be sure to press the glue temperature
adjustment key in advance.
❒ Printing cannot start while the glue temperature adjustment key is unlit or flashing.
❒ If you press the delivery key before binding finishes (before the status indicator
goes off), the lower left tray will not open. Press the delivery key during binding
(while the status indicator is blinking) to set the tray to open automatically
when binding finishes.
❒ While “Perfect Binder Lower Left Tray is full. Remove the paper.”
is displayed, you cannot perform perfect binding. Remove booklets from the
lower left tray.
❒ When removing booklets, be sure to clear the lower left tray completely. You
cannot perform perfect binding if there are booklets remaining in this tray.
❒ Do not print anything on the inner side of the cover sheet (the area glued to
the book block). Doing so can prevent the cover sheet and book block from
adhering properly.
❒ If you open and close the front right or front left cover to remove jammed paper,
binding will be suspended. To resume binding, close the front covers and
wait a few minutes. Binding will restart automatically.
❒ If a misfeed occurs during perfect binding, you cannot open the front right
and front left covers. Wait until the bound booklet is delivered to the lower
left tray, and then open the covers.
❒ Waste paper produced during perfect binding might collect around the lower left
tray. If this happens, clean the area when removing booklets from the lower left tray.

Estimating the Thickness of a Booklet's Spine (Back Edge)
Estimating the Thickness of a Booklet's
Spine (Back Edge)
Use the following lists to calculate approximate spine thickness and cover sheet
length/size.
Note that the length/size of a cover sheet depends on the thickness of the book
block's spine.
The following list shows examples for A4 size, 80 g/m2 (10-micron) paper:
• 10-sheet book block: 1 mm (0.04 inch)
• 30-sheet book block: 3 mm (0.12 inch)
• 50-sheet book block: 5 mm (0.20 inch)
• 80-sheet book block: 8 mm (0.32 inch)
• 100-sheet book block: 10 mm (0.40 inch)
• 200-sheet book block: 20 mm (0.80 inch)
2
Specify the cover sheet size based on the thickness of the book block's spine. Use
the following equation to calculate the length of the cover sheet:
Minimum length of cover sheet (mm/in) =
“length of book block sheet (mm/in)” × 2 + “thickness of spine (mm/in)”
To perfect bind a booklet of the following dimensions, specify a cover sheet
length of 440 mm or longer:
• 200-sheet book block: A4 or Letter (81/2 × 11)
• Spine thickness: 20 mm (0.8 inch)
BES012S
Note
❒ You cannot perfect bind a booklet if the thickness of the book block's spine exceeds
23 mm (0.9 inch).

Perfect Binding
Note
❒ The length/size of cover sheets depends on the thickness of the spine. For
details, see “Confirming the Thickness of the Spine (Back Edge) of a Book”.
❒ There are two trays on the interposer. Each tray can hold up to 200 sheets
of paper. Do not stack paper over the limit mark.
❒ When loading thick paper of 251 g/m2 or heavier in the interposer trays,
make sure the grain of the paper is perpendicular to the feed direction.
❒ If you are loading sheets that are likely to stick together (such as sheets of
coated paper), be sure to fan them thoroughly before loading. Fanning
them will help prevent jams and allow them to be fed in one sheet at a time.
❒ The perfect binding process can scratch glossy paper. Bear this in mind if
you are using glossy paper for the cover sheets.

2. Ring Binding
Ring Binding
This section explains how to bind sheets with a ring comb.
Two ring binding options are available for your output:
• Printed sheets are punched and then bound by ring comb
• Printed sheets are punched for ring comb binding but not bound
You can specify the ring binding settings using the display panel or the printer driver.
To specify the settings using the display panel, see “Specify the Settings on the
Display Panel”.
To specify the settings using the printer driver, see “Using the Printer Driver to
Specify Ring Binding Settings”.
Important
❒ You cannot ring bind or punch on thick paper heavier than 216 g/m2 (57.4 lb.).
❒ This machine can ring bind Letter (81/2 × 11) or A4 size sheets only, depending
on the type of your punch unit.
❒ Only the long side of the paper can be ring bound or punched.
❒ Only OHP transparencies that are A4 size and loaded in portrait orientation
can be ring bound.
Note
❒ When binding sheets with ring combs, make sure the number of printed
sheets is between 2 and 100. If there is only one sheet, it will be punched with
ring comb holes, but not bound.
❒ If you are using 50-sheet type ring combs, you can bind up to 50 sheets of
Plain Paper or 16 sheets of Thick Paper into a single booklet. If you are using
100-sheet type ring combs, you can bind up to 100 sheets of Plain Paper or 33
sheets of Thick Paper into a single booklet. The ranges of acceptable weights
for Plain Paper and Thick Paper differ according to the base machine you are
using. For details, see your base machine's manuals.
❒ The maximum thickness of a bound booklet is 5.5 mm (for 50-sheet type ring
combs) or 11 mm (for 100-sheet type ring combs). If the thickness of the
stacked sheets exceeds the maximum during operation, the ring binder stops
functioning and the sheets remain inside the binder. If this happens, you must
remove the sheets from the binder.
❒ Ring bound booklets are delivered to the ring binder tray. Up to 17 sets (with
a 50-sheet type ring comb) or 11 sets (with a 100-sheet type ring comb) can be
stacked on the tray.
❒ Hole punched sheets are delivered to the ring binder tray. Up to 50 sheets can
be stacked on the tray.
