Muller Martini U.S.A. Releases New Gluing Solution
Muller Martini U.S.A., a book-manufacturing equipment provider, headquartered in Hauppauge, N.Y., has released a gluing solution to meet a wide range of bookbinding needs.
The company’s Collibri backgluing machine allows bookbinders to glue-off thread-sewn books in a variety of ways, using dispersion glue, hotmelt or PUR (polyurethane adhesive) and applying the glue once or twice. The Collibri is available in two different lengths and with one or two interchangeable gluing stations.
The Collibri with one gluing station is offered in two versions: one for melting adhesives and one for dispersion glue. The machine with two gluing stations was designed to enable highly flexible production. The machine includes infrared drying in between as well as a lining station.
All Collibri machines automatically trim the liner from a wide reel cross-wise to the book block, positioned and pressed from below and from the side.
