The Sterling Digibinder
The STERLING® DIGIBINDER® is a fully automated perfect binder. The pneumatic clamp and the nipper adjust automatically. The unique roughing blade roughs and notches the entire backbone of the book. Twin glue applicating rollers and a third metering roller, ensure an even glue application. There is absolutely no set up. Go from thick books to thin books without any adjustments! A silent air compressor is supplied with the machine.

The clamp adjusts automatically between two sheets and 2.25 inches. Both the clamp and nipper are pnuematic, run by the supplied silent compressor.
The unique roughing blade includes a cerated edge which can hold up to six notching pins. This allows for maximum glue penetration and book strength.
Twin Glue Rollers
Two glue rollers saturate the spine with glue. A third metering roller smooths out the glue to the desired thickness.
The Digibinder side glues the rear of the spine by use of a side gluing pin. The book is then nipped in such a way that glue seeps into the front of the book creating a line of side glue there as well.
I purchased my first Digibinder in 2007. I get buried once a year by Town Reports so I bought another one. Once a year I drive one of them down to Spiel for preventative maintenance. These things last forever.
