  • Pressing and joint forming station with heated blades
  • Automatic exit of the book
  • Hydro-dynamic book pressing system
  • Pneumatic joint forming system
  • Heat control for the blades used to create the joint forming
  • Pressing time control
Technical data (attention: by book we mean book block closed and with cover):

  • Air consumption: 200 l/min – 6 atm (to be supplied by the user)

Joint forming machine Cimatic

The Cimatic forms the joints of the book in order to achieve the necessary hinge effect during opening. The joints also gives the book its traditional look.
The joints are pressed with heated blades, one fixed and one movable. The movable blade is driven by a pneumatic cylinder and is activated by a pedal.
To achieve optimum result with various types of covering material, the operator has three settings at his disposal: a thermostat to set the temperature of the blades, a pressure gauge to set the pressing force and a pedal with which he can choose the pressing duration.
No adjustment is required according to the thickness of the book.
The machine is mounted on wheels.

  • Max book thickness: 9 cm 
  • Max spine length: 48 cm
  • Max spine to front: 35 cm 
  • Rated power: 700 W
  • Standard voltage: 220 V / 50 Hz /single phase (others available upon request)
  • Air consumption (to be supplied by the user): 70 l/min  – 6 atm
  • Packed machine size: 103 x 113 x 180 (h) cm
  • Gross weight: 234 kg

Book case rounding machine Beta

The Beta is a simple machine which perfectly rounds the spine of the book case, irrespective of its thickness and the type of covering material used.
The main element of the machine is a heated drum with several moulds corresponding to various book thicknesses. The operator turns the drum until the mould that suits the current book best is in the top position. He also sets the distance between the two upper pressing blades according to the book thickness.
The operator then lays an open case, face up, onto the mould. By pressing a pedal the two blades squeeze the case on either side of the book spine, ensuring sharp edges. The spine is pressed against the heated mould until it assumes its rounded shape.
This machine has a sturdy build and is mounted on castor wheels.

Technical data:

  • Max spine length: 45 cm 
  • Number of moulds: 5
  • Max spine width: from 0 to 65 mm 
  • Mould temperature: min 10 ° C – max 100 ° C
  • Rated power:  500 W
  • Standard voltage: 220 V / 50 Hz /single phase (others available upon request)
  • Packed machine size: 103 x 113 x 180 (h) cm 
  • Gross weight: 132 kg
