Book block

The completed single-page booklet core is produced by folding, aligning, locking, flattening, cutting, backing, rounding, ridges, and three sticking processes. Next, the author introduces the notes on the operation process in the process of backing, squaring, and sticking that are unique to hardcover books.

(1) Pulp back refers to the book block being shaped after the book block is tied and then thinned with a thin adhesive at the back of the book. After the adhesive layer is dried, the book is separated and checked for quality. For a book with a misaligned back, the back of the book is to be re-slurried.

(2) Hardcover books are divided into round backs and square backs. The book block of a square back hardcover book does not need to be rounded. The book block of a hardback book must be rounded. After the book is back-rounded, it must be ensured that the circle type and the arc length are the same, and the central angle corresponding to the circular arc is about 90° to 130°.

(3) The three-stick process is a sticky plug cloth, a sticky back paper, and a sticky cloth.

1 adhesive plug cloth

The cutting width of the plug cloth is the width of the back of the book. First, brush the white latex on the back of the book and the feet of the feet, and then stick the plug cloth. It is required to be straight, sticky and sticky. The edge of the plug cloth exposes the upper and lower cuts of the book block about 1 mm wide.

2 sticky gauze

The back of the book is brushed with white latex, and the cut gauze is glued to the back of the book, and it is required to be smooth and sticky.

3 sticky paper backing paper

The entire book is brushed with white latex, and the back of the cut book is glued to the back of the book. It is sticky and sticky. Take care not to drag the glue to other parts of the cut of the book block.

2. Bookcase

(1) The clip angle of the cover material should be moderate. Too many clips will not hold the cardboard, and too few cuts will make it easier to wrap the corners. When gluing the cover material, thin and uniform is required.

(2) Ensure that the book on the cover is centered on the back. When loading the paperboard, the paperboard must be placed on the left and right sides, and the medium-diameter paperboard must be placed in the middle.

(3) The wrapping must be solid and no empty edges must appear. The wrap angle should be flat and no double corners and wrap angles should be allowed.

(4) The pressure should be even and sufficient during flattening to ensure that the pressure of the bookcase is flat and free of wrinkles. The flattened book case should be checked one by one, and the medium-diameter cardboard should be picked up and repaired. Dry the checked case vertically. After drying, the book shells are neatly stacked face to face, and they are pressed with the weight on the top to prepare for subsequent hot stamping or shelling.

3. Fitting

(1) Do not allow glue to flow to other locations when applying glue to the book's furrows. After confirming that the size of the book block and the size of the book case are suitable, place the book block on the book ditch, test it together, and check whether the three sides of the flap are consistent and the back and the spine of the book.

Whether it is flat, then close the book case and align the three sides of the book, and finally compact the book.

(2) When brushing the lining, the brush should be lifted up slightly to ensure that the brush is thin and even, and there can be no phenomenon of brush or glue overflow. The pressure must be uniform and sufficient during flattening to ensure that the backing paper is strong and flat.

(3) After the lining is flattened and pressed, the books should be checked one by one for any problems such as sticky liner, down, missing sweep, and glue overflow.

(4) When the pressure groove is operated, it must be ensured that the book ditch is straight and double grooves cannot occur.

(5) Each process operator must do a good job of quality labeling according to the workshop regulations.

(6) When the machine is in normal operation, the operator must stick to his position and observe the operation of the machine and whether the product is qualified. If problems are found, they must be shut down immediately and it is forbidden to troubleshoot when the machine is running.
