What is the need to pay attention to the binding head?

The stitching head is one especially critical area for the proper operation of your saddle stitcher at any speed. Even the simplest of newer stitching heads is a complex piece of equipment which if not properly handled, will cause slowdowns, poor quality stitched books and machine downtime.

One of the biggest performance letdowns on a modern high-speed saddle stitcher is the actual stitching head maintenance.

Poor maintenance will result in failure of the head’s ability to feed the wire and resulting not only downtime from a damaged stitcher head but in the decollating and production repairs to the rejected work where the work can be rejected, or more time-consuming repairs to already trimmed products that have been through the trimming process.

Stitching heads have some critical areas that need to be maintained weekly and check to be carried out daily to ensure heads have a trouble-free operation and a long producing life span.

Simple mechanical knowledge will be required to strip and clean service repair and lubricate the stitcher’s head. There are different models of heads from different manufactures available and so please consult the manufacturer’s instructions for the correct method for the specific head being serviced.


The above is some introduction about the binding head. Now you should have a certain understanding of it. Hope these can help you when choosing a binding machine.
