Perfect Binding

Perfect binding is a widely used and popular binding method in the printing industry. It involves binding a stack of sheets together with a flexible adhesive spine and then trimming them to create a flat edge.

palamides understands the common challenges of perfect binding and works to address them:

  • Outsourcing perfect binding can be slow and complicated, requiring attention to design, print and material considerations
  • The choice of paper and ink can have an impact on the perfect binding process
  • Content can be lost in the gutter of the bound book
  • Smaller print runs of perfect bound jobs require specific processing workflows tailored to individual needs
  • End customers prefer one-stop shopping for their printing needs
  • Pages tend to reopen, causing inconvenience
  • The minimum spine strength is dependent on the page count and paper weight.

palamides addresses these challenges in its development and manufacturing of the palamides smartliner 240 which optimizes the perfect binding process. The palamides innovative smartflat technology processes the spine of the book differently from conventional perfect binders. smartflat enables individual pages to be firmly anchored with a hydrosive adhesive. This combination gives the book spine unique flexibility, stability and the coveted lay-flat.

The smartliner 240 is designed to automate many of the steps required for perfect binding. smartliner 240 can handle different sizes and types of printed material while minimizing waste and increasing efficiency. palamides offers customizable solutions to meet various production needs and provides consultation services to help customers optimize their perfect binding process for maximum productivity and cost-effectiveness. palamides also offer training and support to ensure their customers can effectively use their machines and get the most out of their investment.
