This Semi-Automatic Case maker is designed to be operated by one or two people and is ideally designed for short run jobs. It is possible to glue with hot gelatin or cold vinyl glues, allowing the application of a case lining in a second-pass operation. Suitable for the production of book cases, ring files, box files, tabletop calendars, game boards, puzzle boards etc.
The gluing rollers are made of stainless steel for rust-free long life. Special regulation knobs are given for fine adjustment of the glue thickness, on any kind of materials. By use of the special register device in the center of the sheet, the exact positioning of the two boards and the spine strip are possible by following the print references on the sheet. Suction holes in the surface of the worktable fix the cloth/sheet in place and keep it smooth, and lay guides help to place the case board and center strip accurately in position.
The single turning unit is designed for flexibility, to work with different materials ensuring a tight corner wrap. After board fixing, the case is inserted manually into the turning- in unit for each of the four sides. The calendaring unit removes the air bubbles in the case after turning-in; the rollers can be adjusted according to the thickness of the case.
