The processing of books (including this volume) is actually the first order (joint) after the loading (frame), because in the processing is based on the main, it is called binding. The bookbinding process (folding, matching, ordering, locking, sticking, etc.) is referred to as book block processing; the book block that will be linked into a booklet, and the process of wrapping the cover of the outer garment are called book cover processing, also called assembly processing.

A: Post-press binding is a process in which there are many types of work (approximately a few types of work), machine styles, a wide range of models (roughly 100 types), a wide range of materials, and a variety of processing methods. At the same time, it is a process of printing arts. Operation procedure. The quality of the products processed in this process is related to the success or failure of printed products. With the continuous development and reform of the printing industry, the binding process has now been gradually developed from a backward manual operation to a mechanized, interlocking, and automated operation. 4. How important is the binding process in the production of books (including this book)? Answer: There are mainly three aspects. (1) The effect of the quality of book binding on the reading effect, use, and shelf life. Whether the pages and pages of the book are correct and correct; whether the binding (sticking, etc.) is firm and tidy; whether the cover binding is correct in terms of net, firm service, and flattened deformation does not affect the reading effect and shelf life. (2) The influence of the quality of book binding on prepress and printing. The process design of book processing, especially the binding design and processing of book covers, has a direct impact on the overall effect of printed products. Books generally reflect the grade, content and level of the outer cover through the design and processing of the outer cover. The high level of design and molding process of the binding and the good quality can be welcomed and favored by the readers. If prepress and printing have reached the level of intensive cultivation, and the binding of the last completed process has been improperly processed and poorly displayed, and the quality of the books cannot be expressed, then even the best printing products cannot be reflected, and even their work is abandoned. Therefore, not only prepress and printing are important during the book production process, and the binding process after printing is more important because this process is the packaging process of the printed products. Only the high-quality post-processing can obtain the desired results because of the production of a book. The process is a whole concept. (3) The effect of post-press binding on the publishing cycle. The processing of the binding process not only ensures quality, but also cooperates with the above processes to complete tasks on time, guarantee or shorten the publication cycle. There are a large number of publications in the processing of books, the time requirements are very strong, from the truth speaking, prepress and printing should ensure their respective accurate processing time and flow program, but the actual often can not reach the expected results, and finally will The pressure is concentrated on the binding of the post process. Therefore, the binding process must ensure the quality and speed up, but also make up for certain problems that may arise in the printing process to ensure the stability of the publishing cycle. 5.
