Where Perfect Binders are concerned, there is no better manufacturer better to turn to than Wohlenberg, whose innovative techniques are setting new standards.  The Wohlenberg product strategy is to offer each individual customer a machine or system that is tailored to his special needs.

 

 

The Quickbinder is not only intended for expanding smaller-sized companies intending to make the jump to quality book binding applications, but also for large, industrial-scale book binding companies using the machine for the production of superior, high-quality samples and small editions.

In spite of its compact overall size comprising a length of 4.1 m and width of 1.8 m, the Quickbinder combines all the performance features of a large perfect binder. In addition to processing the usual gluing techniques (hot melt, cold glue, PUR), the Quickbinder can also produce brochures with gauzing in one working process. With a wide format range from A6 to A3 (A4 landscape) and a maximum product thickness of 70 mm, the Quickbinder can be used for nearly all required product tasks.


Wohlenberg Buchbindesysteme has added three models to its Quickbinder perfect binding range with the aim of providing more options and greater flexibility for print finishing and bindery departments.

The three new additions are designated ‘Basic’, ‘Universal’ and ‘Digital’, and features included as standard on all three versions are as follows:

  • Mechanical speed of 1000-2000 items per hour
  • Hand feeding station
  • 2 x spine preparation stations
  • Rotary cover feeder
  • 4-fold cover scoring
  • Cover aligning and pressing station
  • Cross stacking device

The ‘Digital’ version also incorporates a Delta 10 function and CBM as standard.

Depending on the individual version, among the options available to further enhance the capabilities of each model are the following:

  • PUR ‘Quickjet’ (Nozzle)
  • PUR ‘Kompact’ (Roller)
  • Hotmelt spine gluing unit
  • Hotmelt side gluing unit
  • Gauzing station 
  • ‘Swiss’ brochures (Otabind)
  • Cold glue equipment
  • Interface conveyors 
  • Book block feeder
One of the outstanding features of the Wohlenberg City e perfect binder is the intelligent combination of motorised and manual adjustment. All important main functions are adjustable and motor-controlled via the Navigator SE. Based on a new platform concept the City e is available in three different speed and specification versions: 4000, 5000 and 6000. This makes the City e a highly flexible automatic perfect binder with an outstanding cost/performance ratio. With the addition of the optional and highly regarded VSS fore-edge trimming device VSS, this enables users to economically produce high-quality gatefolded products on the City e. The fully motorised setting of all important VSS functions via the Navigator control assists in producing the shortest set-up times. In combination with the KRF cover folder feeder the VSS fore-edge trimming device offers the optimal production solution.

Optional system extensions for City e:
- Block feeder
