Hunkeler Tipping Machine – Universal Model, VEA 520

This machine has 2 feeders and comes with attachments for external gluing, insertions and gluing-in. Both cold glue or hot glue can be used as required.

This machine will glue end sheets, cards, fly-leaves to sheets and will insert into folded sheets.

Inserts can be one of the most powerful direct marketing vehicles. And by tipping-on or attaching one component to another, the power of the insert is multiplied: the target market will be engaged by the interactive requirement (pulling the component off). Pacific Bindery Services’ capabilities for tipping-on provide customers with a quick, easy and excellent quality solution.
