ESF-1000 End Sheet Feeder
ESF-1000 End Sheet Feeder
Enhance your book manufacturing process with the Horizon ESF-1000 End Sheet Feeder, designed to expertly attach end sheets to book blocks, a pivotal step in creating case bound books. End sheets serve as the foundation, allowing your book block to firmly bond with its case bound cover, ensuring durability and a premium finish.
Key Features of the Horizon ESF-1000 End Sheet Feeder
- Adjustable Tipping Position: The ESF-1000 flawlessly adds folded end sheets to your book block. Adjust the position for attaching the end sheet up to 6 mm from the spine's bottom, contingent on the milling amount.
- Application Flexibility: Versatility at its best. Whether your book block is a loose sheet, folded signature, glued block, or even sewn, the ESF-1000 can handle it. Configure it inline with the BQ-500 binder or offline for added convenience.
- Variable Thickness Production: With the built-in thickness caliper system, adapt on-the-go for variable thickness productions.
- Optional Barcode Printing: The BR-ESF barcode reader for the infeed section and the CPR-ESF code printer for the delivery section enable barcode printing on the end sheet. This facilitates binder and trimmer setup and ensures matching during the casing-in process.
- End Sheet Feeding: Tip one or two end sheets on the front and/or back of your book block. Load end sheets on the run for uninterrupted production.
- Automatic Thickness Measurement: The integrated thickness caliper measures your book block's thickness, automating system settings for optimal results.
