For the hydraulic pressing of books, brochures, posters, albums, images and pattern and sample cards.

The upper crosshead can be individually adjusted to minimise platen stroke. Each platen can be moved up and down independently using the pushbutton. Once the preselected pressure is reached, the station switches off and the pressure is held until the station is opened either manually or automatically by a timer. Pressing time and pressure settings are infinitely variable.

A long service life with a minimum of maintenance is assured by the unit's robust construction and reliable hydraulic system.

Book Back Nipping Press

The book back nipping press is used to compress the fold along the spine of the book. Two press stations which are loaded alternately make for rapid and efficient operation.

The pressing operation is initiated either by a timer or manually by an electric button. Adjustment of both pressure and stroke is infinitely variable.

  • Outstanding compressing performance
    Spring-loaded bars pre-press the book blocks in the sheets to guarantee high-quality nipping in a defined position.
