Prä machines and devices for finishing book blocks

PräziEdge

Book-edge printer

PräziEdge is a book-edge printer to print delicate and subtle patterns, motives with close attention to detail, a simple coloured edge or graphics and photos running around a book block with impressive 3D effect onto the edges of a book.

PräziEdge is a book-edge printer to print delicate and subtle patterns, motives with close attention to detail, a simple coloured edge or graphics and photos running around a book block with impressive 3D effect onto the edges of a book. It is suitable for one-off books as well as for large volumes. 
The complete printing process runs automatically. Only the book thickness is set manually and the infeed and removal of the books is done manually.
As colourend or motive edges are usually borderless, an overlap print is required to avoid white lines.
Instead of putting boards between each copy, the machine uses a scraper which collects overprinted dye.
Intermediate boards are only used for book blocks with a spine with a strong pitch.
The machine may also process books with rounded corners and even prints on bindings with dispersion glue.
PräziEdge operates with the Memjet technology with water-based ink in CMYK tanks of 2 litres each.
The print resolution is 1600 x 800 dpi and/or 1600 x 1600 dpi. An output of up to 3,000 prints per hour at 1600 x 800 dpi may be realized. This corresponds to 1,000 books per hour with three-side printed in single print mode. Printing all three sides in a row or printing several books together multiplies the hourly output.

Printing data is transferred to the machine by means of an external notebook (not included in delivery). There the data can be edited and processed with the internal software by touchscreen display.
The book thickness is set manually and the infeed and removal of the books is done manually, whereas the complete printing process runs automatically.
The books are guided underneath an inkjet printer on a table, which is adjustable in height, between two conveyor belts.
The printhead is fixed. For overlapping motives there is a special scraper collecting overprinted dyes. Therefore no intermediate boards are not required which saves a lot of time.
