The Eurobind 1300 PUR adhesive binder processes PUR adhesive in an extremely user-friendly, highly precise, and reproducible manner. The premelter and the nozzle applying the adhesive are controlled centrally from the adhesive binder's control console. Thanks to this unique, fully integrated premelter and adhesive binder control system, operators can be sure of optimum reliability in production. The PUR nozzle application system also operates on a volumetric basis. That means the volume of glue applied to each book block is precisely controlled by a gear pump. As a result, it is unaffected by viscosity, temperature, and pressure and supplies exactly the same volume of glue to each and every block, thereby ensuring adhesive is used as cost-effectively as possible.
"The small footprint and short makeready times were what persuaded us to invest in the new Eurobind 1300 PUR adhesive binder. The binding results are extremely good compared with large industrial systems," explains Bühl. And that is no accident. Numerous components in the Eurobind family - including the PUR nozzle - come from the Eurobind Pro adhesive binder system and have been transferred to the smaller Eurobind 600 and 1300 adhesive binders. This ensures that the adhesive binders from Heidelberg always deliver end products that satisfy the ultimate in quality standards - regardless of the production speed.
The Eurobind 1300/1300 PUR is a professional four-clamp adhesive binder that achieves machine speeds of up to 1,300 cycles per hour. It processes a broad range of block formats up to a block height of 360 mm (14.17 in) and thickness of 45 mm (1.77 in), as well as cover formats up to a total width of 680 mm (26.77 in). Inside the high-quality spine preparation station, a high-performance combination tool exposes the individual fibers of the paper on the spine of the block to ensure optimum gluing results and outstanding durability. Regardless of the thickness or type of cover, the book block is also processed with exceptional precision. A correction system on the spine gluing nozzle that is unrivaled in this class of machine ensures optimum glue application.
Overall, this integrated system delivers outstanding quality and reliable processes, both of which are essential when manufacturing high-quality products in very short runs. A bar code reading system is also available as an option. It continuously compares bar codes for covers and content to ensure that all the individual parts fit together perfectly.
In conjunction with a cooling section and the Eurotrim 1000 three-knife trimmer, the Eurobind 1300/1300 PUR can also be extended to form an integrated line and ensure adhesive-bound brochures can be produced cost-effectively, including three-edge trimming, and even when processing very short runs.
