How do our various bindery and finishing machines work:


Buckle Folders work by feeding the paper at high speeds until it hits a stop. The reaction of the paper is to buckle. High friction rollers will then grip the paper and pull it through, that is, the paper is folded by being squeezed between two high friction rollers. The grip of the rollers is caused by the help of rubber or PU. The front edge of the paper went into a so called "pocket". The rollers press on each other by help of a spring. The distance between the rollers can be set.

The Knife Folding system works by striking the paper with a knife between two rollers. This knife is not actually sharp enough to cut through the paper, it simply strikes the paper along the line through which the fold is desired. Many modern folders however, have a combination of both knife and buckle folding mechanisms.


Guillotine is designed to cut large blocks of paper in one motion, the primary difference being the blade, or knife. The blade moves slightly from right to left while moving down through the block.


Perfect binding consist of various sections with a cover made from heavier paper, glued together at the spine with a strong flexible glue. The sections are rough-cut in the back to make them absorb the hot glue. The other three sides are then face trimmed.


Saddle Stitching is designed to insert staples into the spine (saddle) of folded printed matter such as booklets, catalogues, brochures, and manuals.
