PräLomo Pro | Pneumatic spine rounding machine

for book blocks with rounded spines

Product information "PräLomo Pro | Pneumatic spine rounding machine"

The PräLomo Pro is a pneumatic machine to round book blocks in a wide size range. It rounds assorted book blocks (with frequently changing block thicknesses) as well as series of blocks. The device consists of a basic frame with a table that is adjustable in height and a mobile rounding bar with which the rounding of the book block is achieved. This rounding bar is heated. The temperature can be adjusted progressively by a temperature control. Thereby the fan-bound back is heated during the rounding process. The book block may then be rounded much easier and the rounding is even. The table plate is adjustable in height in order to adapt it to different block thicknesses. The thickness is adjusted with a locking lever on the left side of the machine. Moreover, the machine has a built-in heating plate on the right side. The book blocks are piled into the plate for heating up prior to rounding in order to soften the fan-bound backs.

Process

  1. At first, the heating of the device is switched on. The heating process takes approx. 5 - 10 minutes. It is recommended to arrange the book blocks to be rounded according to their thickness and to put the first blocks into the heating plate.
  2. Now the block thickness of the first book block is adjusted with the locking lever.
  3. The book block is placed on the table and pushed against the now vertically standing rounding bar with its fan-bound side.
  4. Now the foot pedal is pressed a few times , until one half of the book back is rounded. While activating the pedal, the book block is held back against the rounding bar with both hands. With the pneumatic system, the power of the rounding plate is adjusted by foot pedal. The stronger the pedal is pressed down, the stronger the block will be rounded. With a little practice, rounding is very quick and the rounding of the block becomes very even.
  5. Then the book block is turned and the other side is rounded in the same way.
  6. The PräLomo Pro can only round book blocks that have been bound with dispersion adhesive (cold glue). Book blocks bound with hotmelt can only be rounded with an additional option for precise control of the heat, as the heat would "reactivate" the adhesive. Rounding PUR-bound bookbocks is only possible after extensive tests and also only in a very narrow time window.

Advantages

The PräLomo Pro is our most advanced machine for rounding book blocks. It is very easy to use and with a little practice any user can produce perfectly rounded books. The temperature can be adjusted using the controls on the table. Likewise, the desired block thickness can be quickly changed on the tabletop. All in all, all common formats can be processed. The force of the rounding plate is controlled by a foot pedal, so that depending on how the foot pedal is pressed, the rounding plate exerts pressure on the book block. A heat plate is used to warm up the perfect binding to prepare the spine and increase its flexibility for the processing in the machine.
