Müller Martini Star Plus Binder – sounds a little bit like a cocktail! But this binder offers the following…
PERFECT BINDING – up to15 sections at run speeds of up to 12,000 per hour across two machines. This is the most cost-effective way of binding with adhesive. It’s suitable for most items and produces an attractive and durable end result. We mill off the spine edge of the text pages, apply a layer of adhesive, wrap the cover round it and then trim the book to size.
PUR BINDING – up to 15 sections at run speeds of up to 7,000 books per hour. This is an extra strong and cost-effective way of binding using polyurethane reactive (PUR) glue that’s suitable for heavier papers and high-use and long-life items. The glue’s super-strong and isn’t affected by printing inks, varnishes or coatings. As with perfect binding, we mill off the spine edge of the text pages, apply a layer of adhesive, wrap the cover round it and then trim the book to size
BURST BINDING – up to 15 sections at run speeds of up to 12,000 book per hour across two machines. This creates a very strong and cost-effective binding on certain materials (such as the fibrous stock used for paperbacks) but a weaker one on others, when we recommend perfect or PUR binding. We’ll always consider your individual job and advise you on the best solution. For this method, we fold the text sections and punch a series of slots down the spine edge so that hot EVA glue can penetrate the centre and give added strength. Spine gutters aren’t needed.
