On Demand Machinery?s Lock-Bind gadget enables your bindery department to ?lock-in? the first and last sheets while safely removing the side-panels. The result is a well-engineered book block that?s ready for casing-in. This intermediate step (prior to casing-in) will form a solid book block that will now be able to absorb all tensile forces exerted onto the binding edge. It?s fast and easy to create a good book block. Just follow these simple steps. 1. After perfect binding, the book block is inserted into ODM?s Lock-Bind gadget. 2. The pneumatically operated clamp is automatically activated. 3. The operator tears off the panels of waste paper, leaving a thin strip of paper, 3/16 inch wide on each side. After casing-in, these extra tab end-sheets offer unusual resistance away from the fragile binding edge strengthening the side cover. The tensile forces exerted onto the first and last sheets are diverted inward, creating a durable hardcover binding.
The ODM Lock-Bind is an ideal gadget for small print shops with relatively inexpensive adhesive binding machines to help produce high quality, adhesive bound hardcover books on-demand. Note: Casing-in and building-in machines are required for hard cover bookbinding production.
