Pressing and joint-setting with Prä machines

PräForm XS

Book press and joint-setting machine

The PräForm XS is a machine to press books after casing-in, setting the joint at the same time and processes single books just as well as small series of books.

The PräForm XS is a machine to press books after casing-in, e. g. on our casing-in machine PräLeg XS, setting the joint at the same time. It processes single as well as small series of books without any format settings. 
The PräForm XS is equipped with two pressing plates of 310 x 310 mm and with heated joint formers. Their rounded (“bull-nose”) shape is ideal for cellophaned and laminated papers as well as other binding materials such as cloth etc.
The temperature of the joint formers is controlled by thermostat and is set according to the requirements of glue, binding material and also working speed.

After casing-in the book is placed on the bottom pressing plate with the joint lying on the joint former. Now the safety guard is pulled down.
The pressing process is activated by pressing the rocker switch in the "up" position. During the pressing process, the next book may be cased in.
By pressing the rocker switch in the "down" position, the pressing process is finished, the pressing shaft opens. The safety guard is pushed upwards, and the finished book is removed.
Usually it is then piled to dry out and does not need any more pressing.
