Testing Equipment Designed for On-Line Quality Control for Adhesive Bound Books


 

Universal Book Tester Model 9 (UBT-9)


Universal Book Tester Model 9The Moffett UBT-9 is designed to test the durability. That is, it evaluates several aspects of a hardcover binding; the abrasion resistance of covering materials, the integrity of the hinges, the stiffness and resistance to de-lamination of the boards, the durability of the sewn or adhesive bound book blocks.

“It is simply the most reliable testing ever invented, one that gives the most realistic results to evaluate the physical performance of bound books.”
