A Klebebinder is a processing machine from the range of the industriellen bookbinder. Klebebinder are continuously working machines to the glueing of the sides, often also a component of complete book flow distances.
In a Klebebinder of the folded and gathered pressure elbow in several working on steps of book block are made. According to whether this book block is connected afterwards with a einlagigen flexible envelope or a firm multi-layer Buchdecke, one speaks with the final product of a stick-bound Broschur or a stick-bound fixed cover.
The individual processing steps run off as follows:
After the sticking binding either only for the book block (with later fixed cover) or the entire Broschur a three-lateral trimming takes place (in front, down and above).
Under the conditions of the industriellen mass production of books and Broschuren the sticking binding represents a very efficient technology, in practice to clock rates of up to 15.000 of block per hour is reached. Nevertheless the sticking binding process is very complex and requires a fine, scientifically justified tuning of the used materials and processing parameters, so that durable products develop.
