High-Speed Corona-Style Perfect Binder Improves Houston Bindery's PUR Capabilities
Houston, TX – Seidl's Bindery, a full-service binding and finishing company located here, has recently installed a Muller Martini Corona-style perfect binding machine. This new binder is the second binding line at Seidl's Bindery, and will use PUR adhesive exclusively to bind all books. The high-speed binder can bind up to 10,000 books per hour with minimal makeready times and waste. Automatic self-adjusting calipers help detect misfeeds, doubles and missing inserts for maximum productivity.
According to Bill Seidl, President of Seidl's Bindery, the Corona will allow the company to bring the benefits of PUR adhesive binding to a broader range of products.
"At Seidl's Bindery, we run PUR adhesive exclusively on all of our perfect binding machines," said Seidl. "The benefits to the customer are tremendous. PUR adhesives create stronger, more flexible spines; they adhere to even heavily-coated stocks; and they resist temperature extremes, which is important in the Southern summer heat. Our customers already know us for outstanding PUR adhesive binding quality. The addition of this binder will allow for faster turnarounds on high-volume projects, and gives us the flexibility to bind a variety of projects.
"We have promised customers continual improvement in our range and quality of service; this installation is one way we have kept that promise."
