The DB-290 is the replacement for the popular DB-280 and DB-200 and boasts deceptively high production speeds capable of up to 200 books per hour. For such a small machine it offers a truly outstanding performance with Planamelt R adhesive. The new Planamelt R is a hybrid polymer glue which behaves like EVA and yet offers 95% of the binding strength of PUR (polyurethane reactive) glue.
Perfect for the 'on demand' short run book market
Very cheap cost per book(*Cost of glue per book)
User Friendly Display. The design of the DB-290 incorporates a simple clear operating panel and LED, for single operator use.
Binding With & Without Covers
The DB-290 offers two binding functions in one compact unit:
(1) Padding, ideal for telephone pads, note pads, NCR pads. (2) Binding of books, manuals etc with wraparound cover (perfect bind).
Manual, Automatic Or Padding
The DB-290 can be set to run automatically or manually. In auto mode, the full benefits of the DB-290 can be realised through the automation of the clamping, release, nipping and binding functions with minimal operator intervention and maximum productivity.
The DB-290 has a quick warm-up time of around 20-25 minutes, with a display on the LED indicating the status of the glue warm-up time (eg from Cold01 to Warm10 and finally Hot20).
Stand-by & Self-Test
Should the DB-290 need to be left idle for a period of time, by simply selecting the stand-by option the glue temperature lowers to avoid the burning and deterioration of the glue. When ready to use again, simply release it from stand-by at the touch of a button and within 5 to 8 minutes it will be ready.
During initial warm-up or after stand-by, once the glue temperature has reached the ideal operating temperature, the DB-290 automatically performs a self test, stirring the glue in preparation for operation, at which point the LED will indicate 'Ready'.
