Answer by Binding101
How many perfect bound books can I make with glue in my DB-290?
Asked by Customer

The "yield", or number of books you can make, will vary quite a bit depending on the size of your book. A smaller book will take less glue to make, so you will be able to make more than a larger book. To determine the yield for your specific book size, you can use the following formula. Check the sample for clarification, and note that this formula is based on 9 lbs of glue that fit into the main compartment of the DB-290, but the lbs / bag may be different.

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 using 11" H x 2" thick book:
\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
