The PräForm XS is equipped with two pressing plates of 310 x 310 mm and with heated joint formers. Their rounded (“bull-nose”) shape is ideal for cellophaned and laminated papers as well as other binding materials such as cloth. The temperature of the joint formers is controlled by thermostat and is set according to the requirements of glue, binding material and also working speed.
The principle of operation After casing-in the book is placed on the bottom pressing plate with the joint lying on the joint former. Now the safety guard is pulled down.
