PräLeg XS | Book casing-in machine

Tabletop machine to combine book blocks with book covers

Product information "PräLeg XS | Book casing-in machine"

The PräLeg XS is a tabletop casing-in machine for books. The machine operates on the well-known principle of one blade for holding and transporting the book block between the gluing units. Without a need for format settings, small and medium-sized editions can be processed just as easily as constantly-changing formats. Control of specific procedures at the gluing stage and subsequent transport of the block to the case is controlled by touchscreen. To achieve a perfect viscosity of the glue, an automatic water feed is integrated into the machine. Water can be added to the glue in intervals either automatically or manually. The machine also has an automatic cleaning system which is activated by touchscreen.

Process

  1. The machine has a blade and two separate gluing units for applying glue to the two end papers of the book block.
  2. At the start of the operating cycle the blade is located in the upper position. A book block is opened in the centre, placed on the blade and pushed against the adjustable stop.
  3. Aftwerwards, the casing-in cycle is triggered by the operator. The blade drives downwards between the gluing units.
  4. While the blade is travelling downwards the book case is placed in the case mountings against the backstop. This ensures that the spacing at the top and bottom is exactly the same.
  5. When the blade has reached the gluing position the gluing units come together pressing against the book block.
  6. After the pressing of the rollers against the joint, the blade begins to move upwards and glue is applied to the two endsheets. The speed at which the blade travels matches precisely the rotation of the gluing rollers. This ensures the level of glue aplied to the end papers is even.
  7. In the end of the cycle the blade guides the book block into the case, coming to a halt in the upper position. This process is supported by pressing the case onto the book block. The book block and the case have now been bound to a book. This book is taken from the blade and pressed in a pressing and joint-setting machine (e.g. our PräForm XS or PräForm).
  8. With its semi-automatic cleaning system, the machine may be cleaned easily and quickly after use.

Advantages

The tabletop form factor of the PräLeg XS makes it ideal for small businesses, as it takes up very little space and can therefore be placed on any worktable. A display with a particularly user-friendly, multilingual menu is integrated. Among other things, this can be used to activate the cleaning system, which then cleans the rollers automatically.

The integrated water feed ensures optimum viscosity of the glue.

It should also be emphasised that there are no makeready times for short and medium runs and constantly changing formats. Thus, all types of books such as layflat, rounded book blocks or integral covers can be produced.
