Gluing. The integrated gluing machine glues the covering material of the book cover so that it subsequently sticks to the book board. Suitable covers are digitally printed sheets, laminated sheets, linen material or plastic coatings. Warm glue is used, with which even difficult and stiff cover material adheres securely to the cardboard. Light table.The light table ensures precise and fast alignment of the cover. Back texts find exactly the right positioning, the boards are placed precisely to the cover.
Edge folding with a brush The patented folding of the cover on all four sides of the book cover is done on the book cover machine Darix Evolution Light by two brushes. You fold in the four pages automatically. The pinching is done automatically instead of by hand. Even book covers with windows or irregular outer contour can be produced.
Once the head and foot sides have been turned in the cover is transported to the right to turn in the second two sides, this enables the product to clear the first unit and start producing the next cover. There are also vacuum belts on the infeed table ensuring the accurate positioning and movement of the case. This gives a running speed of 4 cases per minute.
The glue-greasing section integrated into the machine holds 20 kg of glue and applying it on to the cover of the future cover / box. The equipment also allows for gripping and water-based glue. Appropriate clothing can be: digital printed sheets, laminated media, flax materials or plastic coatings. The glue used keeps even a tough and hard covering material to the coat (natural leather eg). As an option, a viscometer for automatically adjusting the viscosity of the adhesive can be incorporated into the adhesive section by means of a computerized adjustment, a glue mixer set and a glue level sensor as well as an automatic water supply to maintain the viscosity of the glue at work.
