The SideBead application head is a closed system for the application of thin adhesive beads. The bead length can be flexibly adjusted for every book format. The bead is applied in a clean and precise manner thanks to the precise nozzle technology. The non-contact adhesive application protects perfect binding and the downstream triple-cut equipment from contaminations. The result is increased line efficiency with less cleaning and maintenance. The adjustable bracket enables optimum positioning and quick format changes. The SideBead jetting head is ideally suited for retrofitting existing bookbinding machines and can be tailored to the requirements of the customer. The open disc side gluing unit can be replaced with the closed SideBead nozzle system. In addition to side gluing, Robatech also offers book spine gluing using the SpineCoat coating head.
