- Quick make-ready clamps
The clamp is the heart of the bookbinding machine, carrying the book
throughout the process. The heavy duty parallel clamps ensure an even
pressure is applied along the sections to obtain a square book and
prolong clamp life.
- Apine preparation for maximum strength
The Baumbinder range uses the same spine preparation principles as
Heidelberg's large, high-speed bookbinding machines. This means that a
book produced on this simple machine is as durable as the catalogues
and directories bound by the world's largest book-binders such as Quad
Graphics, Maul Belser and ILTE.
- Even glue application
A thin, even layer of glue, applied at the right temperature, is
essential to produce a tight, flat spine free of wrinkles. The
Baumbinder does this by applying molten glue along the spine with two
applicator rollers revolving in the direction of book travel. A
reverse roller returns the excess glue to the tank.
- Accurate cover application
The Baumbinder 1500 is supplied with a top loading , bottom feeding
cover feeder which uses a pin and airblast to separate the covers
without marking. An optional air-float table is available for use with
heavier stocks and to enable the cover feeder to be fully loaded,
regardless of cover weight.
- Delivery options
The Baumbinder 1500 has a two-part conveyor system which can be
conveniently positioned to bring the finished books back to the
operator at the handfeed station or positioned straight to allow easy,
