Two KOLBUS book production lines will be installed at printing house “Press of Ukraine” in Kiev. The first soft cover book production line is already delivered and put into exploitation SIKO service centre specialists.
Book production lines based on the newest binder KM 600 met the world’s recognition after the presentation of the binder at drupa 2012 exhibition. The introduced machine design developments not only provide high level of automatization and speed, but also simplify operation with binder.
Thus, central control panel with integrated Copilot system controls all machine processes. It is possible to set the number of active feeders and main parameters of signatures to be gathered (this function is repeated by touch screen panel at each block of 4 sections for more convenient operation). None of tools are needed to change over sizes. Channel height adjustment is made automatically; connection/disconnection of stations is set on monitor. Gripper movement trajectory has been improved and, as the result, bond strength could be increased by 50%.
There are some extra challenging solutions in the line installed at Press of Ukraine. ZA 842 Gathering machine also enables to bring gathered piles on side with stacking and rotation of 180°, for example, for sending to sewing machine. The XMT 280 Book Block Feeder for feeding of untrimmed sewn book blocks has become the sound following of the line.
Besides, the line is equipped with rotary cover feeder with separation of inclined pile, Three Knife Trimmer HD 143.P and XKL 300 Compensating stacker providing the highest palletizing quality and flexibility of sizes.
