Case making with Prä machines


Board and spine trimmer

The PräziTrim is designed to automatically trim cover and spine boards for the production of book cases.

The PräziTrim is designed to automatically trim cover and spine boards for the production of book cases.
It trims the cover boards and spines out of a sheet of grey board and transports them to the operator, who places them on a pre-glued cover sheet. The trimming sizes are scanned via barcode or entered manually into the built-in software by means of a touchscreen or loaded from a previously created database. It may be used as a component within the Cover 1 case-making system or as a standalone

The PräziTrim software can be operated in 2 modes. The first involves using a barcode / job file that stores all details of manufacturing the case including case size and profile to be used for manufacturing. The second involves running a case with the user loading the profile to be used and manually entering  the information prior to processing the case.
Then greyboard blanks are placed into the board hopper. If the operator is loading grey board blanks for the first time or if they are changing to a different size blank they will need to manually adjust board hopper to fit the blanks.

The cover boards and the spine are now trimmed to the scanned and/or entered dimensions and forwarded to the operator over the conveyor who may now immediately place them on the  pre-glued cover material.
