|Casing-In thin books on a blade based casing-in machine has always been a difficult and tedious task. Now with the new ODM Sticker Cover Guide, the accurate placement of thin covers is a snap. In addition, it saves production time, eliminating the manual operation of 'pre forming' the covers.
||The open cover is inserted into the cover guide system.
The spine portion of the cover is held in place with vacuum.
The book block is placed on the wing as in normal operation.
||When the wing returns back to the home position, the cover guide
bar is (manually) lowered to contact the spine of the book block.
