Uni-Guide Cuts, Glues and Collates for On Demand Book Printer

Uni-Guide Cuts, Glues and Collates for On Demand Book Printer

The world of print publishing is changing. New inventions, such as handheld tablets, are providing immediate access to a full library of books without taking up any physical real-estate on bookstore shelves. So how does this affect good old fashioned print books? On Demand Books has recently come up with a solution: the Espresso Book Machine. A collaborative design effort first conceptualized by On Demand Books – The Espresso Machine was further refined for manufacturability by Detroit Tool and using PBC Linear’s Uni-Guide linear slide to further improve the design. After integrating the Uni-Guide, DTE was able to reduce the overall assembly count, improve performance and reduce the overall total cost.

Self-locking, Non-Magnetic and Easy to Integrate: Piezo-Based Linear Drive for Automation Technology


Linear direct drives have advantages over rotating electric motors for rectilinear motions in automation technology because the latter always have to use a spindle to convert the driving force into translational motion. An often undesirable aspect of conventional linear motors is that they are not self-locking and thus require holding currents which are associated with heat dissipation, high energy consumption and “positional jitter”. Piezo-based linear drives offer a solution here.
