This professional and high-quality perfect binding machine, also called a soft cover book maker, offers user-friendly controls and output of up to 200 books per hour, making it the perfect solution for short-run and on-demand printing and publishing applications. Simply jog your book pages into a square and place them into the automatic gripping clamp. The DB290 will grab your stack and complete the process, including roughening the spine, applying glue, and attaching the covers. Innovative features, including a dust extractor to keep your surface and book clean, as well as multiple glue tanks for less frequent refills, only add to the convenience of this durable tabletop soft cover book binder.
Not only can the DB-290 create soft cover books with ease, it is also capable of creating pads of paper (called padding and pad binding), and tape bound books (called spine tape binding). Change-over between each binding type is completed with just the push of a button, so there is no down time when job requirements change.
The DB-290 is a new and improved version of the discontinued DB-280 perfect binding machine. There have been several upgrades added that allow for the highest quality finished books and pads of paper.
Improved DB-290 Features:
With fast, automated performance, ease-of-use, and many more features that are normally only found in more expensive machines, the Duplo USA DB-290 perfect binder is a smart buy. Add it to your print shop or publishing plant to produce quality books in small runs for your on-demand requirements. The ability to produce these smaller runs opens your doors to more customer opportunities including small self-publishers, school districts for yearbooks and textbooks, equipment manufacturers needing user manuals, and so many more.
* When binding books thicker than 30mm, the notching blade height needs to be adjusted. Adjustment details are in the operators manual.
** May vary depending on glue type used.
