Spine squaring module SM-101

The optional SM-101 in-line book spine-squaring module may be connected to the end of the Smart-binder delivery conveyor. Each book exiting the Smart-binder is transported into the SM-101 where it is stopped, clamped and the spine is compressed into a ‘square’ shape.

The book is then ejected onto a horizontal stack on top of the module.

The maximum book thickness for spine squaring is 6.5mm. The maximum SM-101 throughput rate is 28 books/min, which reduces the Smart-binder booklet output rate when making thinner booklets.
