IBIS Smart-binder options - Book stacker BSS-30
The BSS-30 book stacker allows non-stop Smart-binder operation without the need for the operator to continually have to remove books from the delivery conveyor. Books pass through the standard Smart-binder delivery conveyor into the BSS-30 stacker where they collect into piles up to 160 mm high. The number of books in each pile is selectable by the machine operator.
Book piles are delivered onto a roller table where they accumulate until removed by the operator. In-line (or off-line) pile banding is also available.
Completed stacks contain booklets (or signatures) with spines all orientated in the same direction. An alternative version of this stacker is available with an additional automatic stack reject facility. This ejects any bad stacks in one direction (stacks which do not contain the correct booklets of signatures in the correct sequence) and delivers all good stacks in a different direction. This version stacker includes a code reader to read incoming booklets or signatures.
If making book blocks for perfect binding, then a cold glue applicator may be added which glues the signatures inside each book block. This may be used to aid the transportation of these book blocks into a perfect binder.
