Photobook Technology will exhibit at booth nr. 459
- the 600 cycle/hour automatic hot melt section gluing machine “mitablock 450” to automatically produce lay flat book blocks.
We look forward to your visit, where we can demonstrate the equipment with live production and show you the distinct advantages of this technology.
Finally, we took the decision to more aggressively and directly develop the North American market. The key to this decision was, that Ric Bloch has decided to join the PBT group. Ric was already involved with Photobook Technology in the early days. He brings into the company long time experience of print finishing technology. Ric has now formed Photobook Technology USA and took on the task to gradually develop nationwide sales and service. With the upcoming PRINT in Chicago there will be an excellent opportunity to establish direct contacts with new and existing customers. The first objective however is to provide good service to our US customers. For this, the European PBT has committed their support also with German technicians in this start up period.
- the 100th mitabook casing in line with mitaform and
- a new 600 cycle/hour hot melt section gluing machine “mitablock 450” to automatically produce lay flat book blocks.
We look forward to your visit, where we can demonstrate our equipment with live production and show you the distinct advantages of our technology. Besides you will meet Ric Bloch and our management will give you an update on new developments and future strategies.
Hunkeler Innovation Days have developed over the years into one of the most important events focusing on digital print, print finishing and substrates.
HID is the perfect occasion for PBT to demonstrate in Hall 1:
- mitablock automatic lay flat section gluing machine
- mitabook fully automatic hardcover casing-in system
Both machines will be shown in production mode during the exhibition.
See you in Lucerne!
mitabook fully automatic hard cover casing-in line
At the upcoming Orlando Show PBT will exhibit and demonstrate the mitabook fully automatic hard cover casing-in line.
With worldwide 80 successful mitabook installations with prime photo book producers and digital plants, this technology has set a new standard for short run hardcover manufacturing.
The show machine with its special and winning features will be equipped with barcode recognition and the new automatic adjustment for varying block thickness and spine width. PBT sales and technical personnel will be available during the whole show to give more in-depth information on mitabook as well as the other specialised equipment we offer.
We would be happy to see you in Orlando!
With now almost 70 successful installations worldwide some innovative features are now available. Variable book thickness. It is common in the photo book business that with same format books the page count varies and so does the spine inlay of the case. Batching was required before casing-in. With the new options “measurement of block thickness” and “measurement of width of spine inlay” in the machine, same size books with different thickness can be cased in without production interruption. Enlarged size range after having already increased max. block thickness from 20 to 40 mm, the mitabook can now handle a max. book size of back-to-front 360 mm (14”) and head-to-tail 400 mm (15 ¾ “). mitaform – fold forming station. In order to produce a more pronounced fold area, or a differently shaped joint, regardless of position, we can offer now the mitaform joint forming machine to be connected at the exit of the mitabook. Heated and exchangeable forming irons precisely reshape the fold of the finished book.
