Automatic hotmelt section gluing machine

mitablock 450 - automatic hot melt section gluing machine

The mitablock 450 is a fully automatic layflat hotmelt section gluing machine designed especially for the production of high-quality layflat book blocks in single- to very short-runs. Thanks to the high degree of automation with simple format setup times, ease of operation and small footprint, it achieves a unique position in the layflat book-on-demand sector in the lower speed range (up to 900 gluings/h).

This technology is a Chinese development and patent protected in USA, EU and China. The mitablock 450 is manufactured to Digibook Technology specifications and standards. The machine carries out four operations in one passage. The one side printed sheets are fed singly into the machine from the feed magazine and are then being scored and folded. Then, a roller gluing system applies a very thin layer of pressure sensitive hot melt. At the final step, the glued sheets are attached to each other in perfect register to complete the finished lay flat book block.

An important component of the machine is the integrated board feeder. This offers the possibility to place up to four boards between the folded sections. The cardboard inserts can be of different color.

This unique binding process results in a very strong, stable book block and is very appealing for the viewer, due to the uninterrupted, panorama image, over two adjacent pages. This technology is used today primarily with manufacturers of photobooks, but it is also becoming increasingly popular for the graphic design of high quality catalogs and presentations of new products and projects. This binding process is becoming a popular tool for digital printers and book manufacturers to enter new markets with higher added value.

Special features

  • The machine is loaded via the pile feeder and the separate board feeder. Thereby an exact alignment as well as a double sheet control takes place. Different infeed sequences are possible via the board feeder.
  • There is no need for makeready for different formats, as the format data is transferred to the press via the manually adjustable side guides of the feeder and automatic measurementof the sheet length.
  • The machine is set-up by entering the number of signatures to be glued and the desired board scheme. Alternatively, the machine can be controlled via a print mark or a barcode that passes on the signal when a block is complete. In this way, blocks with different page packs can be produced continuously without having to change over the machine.
  • Very different paper and board thicknesses and qualities can be processed. The creasing tools can also be converted to different geometries if required.
  • The very thin hotmelt glue application (less than 20 g/m²) is carried out via a stationary glue roller.
  • The book block is assembled horizontally on a table. Exact alignment is ensured by sensor-controlled re-adjustment of each individual folded sheet.
  • The machine is operated by one operator who, due to the speed of the machine, can also perform other tasks on the side.

Technical specifications

Production speed
900 sections / h – depending on format

Example-section length – speeds:
Section length 304,8 mm (12”): A= 4,0 s B= 3,4 s C= 20,0 s
Section length 406,4 mm (16”): A= 4,0 s B= 3,5 s C= 21,0 s
Section length 609,6 mm (24”): A= 4,5 s B= 3,8 s C= 23,0 s
Section length 914,4 mm (36”): A= 5,0 s B= 4,0 s C= 24,0 s

A = Time from start until suck in of the 2nd sheet

B = Time between 2 sheets (suck in / suck in)

C = Time from suck in of the last printed sheet until ejection of the blocks
