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.
Spine preparation for maximum strength
The Quickbinder 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 books produced on the larger
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 Quickbinder 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 Quickbinder 200 is supplied with a top loading , bottom feeding cover
feeder which uses a pin and airblast to separate the covers without marking.
The Quickbinder 200 has a two-part conveyor system which is positioned to
bring the finished books back to the operator at the handfeed station.
