A version of the Layflat LF600 mB bookbinding system especially customized for the Indian market makes its first appearance at the PrintPack 2022 being held at the India Expo Centre. Designed for creating ‘layflat’ photo- and other – books, the India version accepts single-sided (simplex) prints/pages up to 18 x40.” It also provides box creasing that creates a gap inside the pages to provide space between pages to allow inserting samples in commercial sample catalog such as those used in the laminates or garment industries.
The economical L600 mB is a semi-automatic book block system which converts manually-fed pre-folded and creased printed sheets of photographic or other media into a finished book block using special low-temperature hot melt glue for maximum strength. It has an output capacity of up to 600 pages/hour.
Also being demonstrated in the stand are two binders that employ patented V-Shape LayFlat binding technology to create layflat book blocks from double-sided (duplex) printed sheets. These machines are designed to eliminate the problem that typically occurs when creating photo books from pages that have unique surfaces such as texture paper, metallic paper, and luster paper.
The fully automatic VS 650 All In is a compact multi-functional binding machine which provides the entire process of making the book block – from window cutting, hole punching, and hot glue laminating through to the auto cutting of the laminated sheets. It can create up to 650 pages/hour.
The TL 400 VS is a compact manual-feed multi-functional slit and strip binding machine that includes lamination to produce a completely layflat book block for sheets up to 482mm x 482mm. More than twelve TL 400 VS systems are generating more business for printing facilities in India.
