1.The student’s workbook is bound together by iron wire and has two staples. Is a common way of riding nails.

2.The medical records used in the hospital are stitched together by sewing threads. It is usually called stringing. To put it simply, replace the nails of the riding nails with sewing threads, that is, unfold the book, and use a sewing machine to sew the inner pages together along the middle spine line.

3.Some instructions use glue to glue the spine lines together. For example, two sheets of paper are folded in half, and glue is applied to the outer spine line of one sheet of paper. Of course, in the actual production process, this bonding process is directly completed on the folding machine.

Paperback binding

All the inner pages of the book are stacked together, and the left side is either glued, pressed together with iron wire, or twisted together with sewing threads. It is the book block. The books on the left are generally more than 5mm thick.

1.The textbooks (textbooks) used by students are formed by hot-melt adhesive bonding, which is the most common plastic bag book. The method is very simple: Fold the inner pages together in the order of the page numbers, tidy the left side, and glue the left side together with glue. The cover is wrapped around the book block and is glued together at the spine. Finally, cut into finished products according to the marking line, that is, the bound book we often see. Of course, in the production process, these steps are completed by equipment automation.
2. High-end publications such as galleries and photo exhibitions. The spine of the inner pages is twisted with sewing threads. The twisting of sewing threads here is different from riding staples. It can be seen here as several saddle stitches stacked together, and then twisted together along the spine with sewing threads. It’s for book blocks. Then cover the cover with glue and cut the finished product.
3. Most of the reference books, the book case is thick and tough, is for hardcover books. The inside pages of a hardcover book are similar to the glue-locked binding. Just the cover is made of rigid cardboard by gluing, which is used for sealing. The cover and book block are glued together by a part called a ring liner. The specific production process will be explained in detail later.
