Ideal for short to medium runs and variable productions, the single-clamp DPB-500 Perfect Binder produces books up to 2″ thick and up to 525 cycles per hour. With the cover automatically fed into position, the book block is moved across the milling and notching station to properly prepare the spine for strong glue penetration. The DPB-500 features a large glue tank with two heated drums and two side gluing wheels to bind the edge of the cover to the side of the book block for proper opening and closing. The clamp can also automatically adjust to process variable thicknesses and set the nipping and hinge scoring station for precision book binding.
