The BDM Speed is a high speed casemaker with an output of up to 85 cases per minute, specially designed to meet the requirements of medium and large size series, for the production of book cases with rigid or flexible spine, as well as one-piece cases for ring binders and letter files.
This machine incorporates numerous digital servo drives for short, precise repeatable setup and adjustment of all critical settings.
The front and back boards are fed via a prepile belt into the hopper. Boards are then fed into the machine and registered by pushers to achieve perfect alignment with the cover material.
The BDM Speed can be operated either with flexible spine from a roll or rigid spine fed from the board hopper. An optional in-line board cutter eliminates pre-cutting of board for cases with rigid center board.
The cover material is transferred from the bottom of the non-stop feeder to the gripper cylinder for glue application. Board and cover materials are combined in continuous rotary motion, which guarantees bubblefree gluing.
The combination is transferred via a belt mounted gripper transport into the head / tail folding and corner tucking station in intermittent motion. Flexible, rotary brushes make the folds of the cover material from an upright position. During transport through the folding stations, the folds in the area of the thinner flexible spine are firmly pressed.
The cases are then transported through the final pressing station for additional pressing.
A counter stacker delivers piles of finished cases on to a roller conveyor and back to the operator.
