Frequent Asked Questions

Q
How many books will I get out of the glue?
Asked by Customer
A

The number of books you can make is called the "yield". To determine the glue yield for perfect binding books, you can use the below formula, which includes the spine dimensions of your specific books (since books can vary in size quite a bit, and yield will vary just as much). This formula is based on the main compartment capacity, which is about 9 lbs of glue, even though the glue bag is larger.

Formula:  (0.02 x book thickness x length of book spine = X), then (X ÷ 231 = Y), then (Y x 9 = Z), then (50 ÷ Z = total books)

Sample:  If I have a book that is 11" high with a 2" thick spine, I would take:
\n   •  0.02 x 2 x 11 = 0.44
\n   •  0.44 ÷ 231 = 0.00190476
\n   •  0.00190476 x 9 = 0.01714284
\n   •  50 ÷ 0.01714284 = 2,916 total books

\nSince your books may be a different size, simply change-out those two dimensions for your spine height and book thickness to calculate the number of your books that can be made. And remember, this yield is based on the 9 lbs of glue that the machine can hold in the main compartment, and the glue bags are sold in larger (higher pounds) bags, so will have a different overall yield.
