Product category: Palletizing systems


PLUTON can be used to palletize: Hard and Soft cover books, sewn and glued bookblocks, magazines, catalogues and phone directories, shrink wrapped piles or bundles, carton boxes, strapped / blocked signatures, newspapers.   Main characteristics of this machine are: the small footprint which allows its application even in very narrow places, the continuous jogging of the product during the different transition inside the machine, and simplicity of movements through linear transport. The palletizer is constructed on a main structure which, due to the compact dimensions, enables its transport as one piece.   The PLUTON is endowed with a timing station at the entrance, an accumulating conveyor, automatic storage for empty pallets and an automatic device for feeding of the slip-sheets.   Technical Data

Product category: Book block feeders, Book stackers


This automatic book block feeder offers a variety of applications such as hard cover book lines, perfect binders or back gluing machines, and more.

The FAST BOOK is electronically linked to the following machine by an encoder and photocell; its speed is therefore controlled by that machine. The encoder reads the speed and the photocell checks when the finger of the transport chain (where applicable) is passing through. The operator places the book block into the hopper of the boo block feeder. A moving table transfers one single product between two driven rollers (an upper and a lower one). The upper roller is adjustable in height and it is pressed onto the product by a pneumatic cylinder during the transfer process.

The AUTOLOAD is a pre-pile conveyor, consisting of a three meter (ten feet) friction-free conveyor, which automatically feeds the book block feeder. The conveyor is available with infeed direction into the book block feeder from the right or the left side. Also the length of the conveyor can be designed to be adapted to the different room/space conditions.

Company news

Say Drupa, think Solema

Drupa is by far the world’s most important fair for printing technologies, bookbindery processes, and paperboard converting towards paperboard converting towards sustainable packaging ways.

Solema has always known about this and so at our first Drupa edition in 1990 we presented the SOL-D. This was our first stacker machine for hardcover products and collecting books at the outfeed of a case-in machine. The first appearance in such an important stage had been done. 

Since that time, we have never missed any editions despite the economic hardships that hit us in the bookbinding industry.

In 1995 our machine portfolio had expanded a lot. The Sierra Saw was in our stand and now bookbinders’ processing had been made easier because of it. This made way for sewing operation on double printed book blocks could be done inline without pausing the operations (ah by the way, did you know that, even if Drupa has always been a quadrennial fair, the 1994 and 1998 editions had been shifted to a quinquennial period to exactly match the year 2000?).

2000 was the celebration for the undisputed Fastbook success. From then to now over 550 feeders have been sold to automate any type of product. Pluton premiered in 2004, Magic Box in 2008, and Venus in 2012.

When the graphic art industry and paperboard converting came together, we were there and in 2016 we exhibited an Idealgandria. Solema is now known as a world expert in bookbindery processes as well as in paperboard converting solutions.

What will be in 2020?
