Planatol Adhesive application systems: Part of DRUPA history

Tradition and Innovation 

At Planatol, our heritage is deeply rooted in the pioneering spirit and innovation that have characterized our journey since the early days of adhesive application technology. Since presenting our very first machine building innovation -a binding machine for threadless bookbinding- at the first ever DRUPA in 1951, we have been committed to enhancing the efficiency and productivity of our customers' operations through cutting-edge solutions. This commitment led us to introduce the first longitudinal gluing equipment for fold-gluing in rotary printing presses in 1963, marking a significant milestone in the printing industry. By 1983, we further solidified our position as industry innovators with the installation of the first cross-web gluing equipment in a rotary printing press. These landmark achievements have paved the way for our current suite of solutions, including the Cold Gluing and Fold Gluing systems, each meticulously designed to meet the specific application needs of our clients.
