Model 4500 Advanced Bookbinder Dryer

In-Line Radio Frequency Drying System for Sewn and Perfect-Bound Books Using Water-based Adhesives


  • Use water-based glue at high production speeds.

  • Bind continuously in-line without handling and stacking before trimming.

  • Binder-to-trimmer time is reduced. Eliminates trimmer blade fouling.

  • Glued area of the book is selectively heated and dried, while dry areas receive little or no heating. Minimum cooling is required.
  • Glue charring, blistering and skinning-over is eliminated.

  • Requires a fraction of the floor space of conventional dryers.

  • Efficient use of energy. RF power is instant-on-off.

  • Improved book quality, flexibility and recyclability.
