PräziEdge | Book edge printer

Printer with transport system for books

Product information "PräziEdge | Book edge printer"

PräziEdge is a book-edge printer that prints delicate and subtle patterns, motives with close attention to detail, a simple colour cut or even graphics and photos around the book block with a captivating 3D effect on the book edge. While the entire process is fully automatic, only the adjustment of the book thickness and the infeed and removal of the copies are done manually. As coloured or motive edges are usually borderless, an overlap print is required to avoid white lines. Instead of putting boards between each copy, the machine uses a scraper which collects overprinted ink. Such boards are only used for book blocks with a strongly rising spine. The machine may also process books with rounded corners and even prints on bindings with dispersion glue. PräziEdge operates with the technology of water-based pigment ink in CMYK tanks. The print resolution is 1200 x 600 dpi and/or 1200 x 1200 dpi. Up to 300 books with three sides printed may be processed per hour. With the printing system, not only printing on book edges is possible. Absorbent materials such as wood, fabric and cardboard may also be printed.

Process

  1. The print data is edited on an external notebook (not included in delivery) with the printer software delivered and then sent to the machine via Ethernet cable.
  2. The adjustment of the book thickness as well as the infeed and removal of the copies is done manually, while the entire printing process is fully automatic.
  3. The books run across a table with automatic height adjustment between two conveyor belts under an inkjet printer. The printhead is fixed. For overlapping prints, there is a scraper that collects overprinted ink. Therefore cardboard no longer needs to be added. The time saving is considerable.

Advantages

The height of the product to be printed can be adjusted quickly and easily with the automatic height adjustment of the table at the touch of a button. The printhead is stationary during printing because the PräziEdge uses water-based pigment ink technology to print the book edge. This makes printing much faster. Around 300 books per hour can be printed on three sides. The flexible transport system also makes it possible to print on absorbent materials such as wood, fabric and cardboard.

At the same time, it is possible to print with a high print quality of up to 1200 dpi, making delicate and subtle patterns and designs possible in a realistic 3D effect on the book cover. The only manual operations required during the printing process are the adjustment of the book thickness and the infeed and removal of the printed books.

By means of the optionally available height-adjustable lower table, the machine can be aligned to the optimum working height for the user.
