Case making with Prä machines


Casemaking system

The PräDeka system is designed to produce hardcover book cases for single (assorted) as well as small series of books.

The PräDeka is designed to produce hardcover book cases for single (assorted) as well as small series of books.
It consists of the following components:
• PräDeka system base
• PräziCoat XS two-roller gluing machine
• PräDeck casemaker
• PräKant turning-in machine
PräDeka System base
The system base consists of two combined tables with
bottom intermediate shelves, a shelf for pre-cut boards, cover material etc., a drawer for tools, manuals etc. and a lateral storage space adjustable in height for the gluing machine.
The complete system base is adjustable in height. 

PräziCoat XS Gluing machine
This two-roller gluing machine was constructed in such a way that the glued cover material may be placed on the PräDeck without twisting and turning.
As the machine is equipped with a hot-glue tray and a temperature control, it may be operated with hot as well as cold glue.

PräDeck Casemaker
In one process, the two boards and the spine hollow are placed accurately and with the exact joint width on to the glued cover material.No adjustments to different case sizes are required. An illuminated case as well as scales facilitate the positioning of the cover material.

PräKant Turning-in machine
The PräKant  is a turning-in machine designed to turn in and press down the edges during the production of book covers etc. and may also be used for rubbing down laminated or mirrored covers.
The brush height of the machine may be adjusted individually to adapt to different materials and especially to the board thickness. All kinds of different products may thereby be turned in at optimum quality.
