Case making with Prä machines

Cover 1

Casemaking via barcode system

Cover 1 is a semi-automatic casemaking system for one-off and multiple production of hardcover book cases.

Cover 1 is a semi-automatic casemaking system for one-off and multiple production of hardcover book cases. All settings for the format are read from the barcode on the cover sheet through a barcode reader. These settings in the barcode are transferred to all devices withn the Cover 1 system and are preset accordingly.  The system consists of different components which may be combined individually.

The Cover 1 system is operated and controlled by the central control unit PowerTower. All settings for the format are read from the barcode on the cover sheet through a barcode reader and sent to the system for direct processing.

On the PräziTrim  boards and spines for the production of book cases are trimmed fast and accurately.

For processing soft spine hollows, the PräziSpine  is recommended. This machine cuts thin greyboard rolls for flexible spine hollows automatically.

The PräziSheet is used to trim printed and/or laminated cover sheets to prepare them for case-making. The cover material must be printed with a black border representing the trim mark. The material is turned automatically and is ejected to the rear when trimmed machine. It is controlled by a tablet PC included in delivery.

The PräziCoat Pro is used to glue the cover material. This gluing machine has a rotating doctor roll of 530 mm width for the use of hotmelt gelatine. The machine has an automatic viscosity control (AVC) for a permanent use.

The actual case is made on the PräziCase Pro. The operator puts the glued cover material on the machine table and places the boards manually. The actual casemaking process with cutting the corners (optional), turning-in all four edges and the final pressing of the case is done fully automatically.  

The components of the Cover 1 system may be combined individually according to your requirements. Moreover, all machines are available as standalone machines.
