RPM Spine Pressing Machine

The RPM Spine Pressing Machine is installed prior to or after the backgluing machine. Its heart is the unique roller pressing system comprised of three pairs of pressing rollers which accurately compress the spine area of the book block. The pressure greatly reduces spine buildup on the book block.

The RPM handles all types of paper stocks and book blocks. The format setting is automatically adjusted when the Collibri backgluing machine is set up. Fine adjustments can be made on the control panel while the machine is running production.

Roller/Full-surface Pressing Machine RPM/GPM

The Roller/Full-surface Pressing Machine RPM/GPM eliminates spine build-ups efficiently and permanently. It prepares Bookblocks with spine build-up in the best of ways for gluing off and further processing and gets the blocks in perfect and lasting shape.

The Roller/Full-surface Pressing Machine RPM/GPM consists of two stations. The bookblock is first run through the RPM Roller Pressing Machine which nips the spine area. Then the bookblock is passed on to GPM Full-Surface Pressing Machine
where its entire surface is pressed with a force of up to 30 tons. All air is pressed out of the bookblock to allow for a completely uniform block thickness. As the press with its hydraulic cylinder has a direct effect on the pressing jaws, one hundred percent pressing of the bookblock is guaranteed.

The GPM can press two blocks with maximum heights of 25 cm at the same time. At unchanged machine speed, the bookblock pressing time then almost doubles warranting thus a very high bookblock quality.

Perfetto

The efficient Perfetto Compensating Stacker is designed for production networking with saddle-stitching systems in the mid-range performance segment. It reliably creates perfect packages at speeds of up to 16,000 cycles per hour and in multishift operation. The Perfetto’s universal size range is coordinated with the market-leading saddle stitcher in its performance class.
The Perfetto is simple to operate. Format and package structures can be easily and quickly adjusted on the comprehensive display. The compensating stacker uses the Muller Martini Automation Platform (MMAP) and is completely integrated into the control system of the saddle stitcher.

Apollo

The Apollo Compensating Stacker processes saddle-stitched products reliably into cross-stacked piles. It is employed in the low- to mid-range performance sector and can achieve a production speed of up 16,000 cycles per hour. The Apollo can be operated by just one person.
The control panel is attached to a pivoting arm and can be operated from both sides of the machine. All machine processes are displayed and monitored on the controller. Size changes are carried out quickly and without tools, shortening the Apollo’s set-up times.
The Apollo Compensating Stacker processes one-up and two-up products. In the simply designed prestacking bin, the collected copies are neatly centered with vibration. The products are ejected from above by an ejector, to the left, right or alternating.
