Manodex

Manodex

Thumb indexing utilizing gold-stamped labels mounted into the desired position is more labor intensive but aesthetically much more pleasing. Such machines such as the MEKAINDEX™ are in existence but expensive for short runs. The need for a simple manual thumb index cutter prompted the design of the MANODEX™ based on the design of a rare unit displayed in our museum…an affordable tool that enables you to diversify your product line for increased profitability.

Note: The video shows the more expensive Mekaindex Pneumatic Thumb Index Cutter. The book clamping fixture shown in the video is available as an option for the Manodex.

PRESSES (EZ-PRESS Sr.)

MEKATRONICS EZ-PRESS Sr. This one-of-a-kind book press is the prototype of the production 1,500 lb. production model. Made of steel and aluminum, it consists of a platen, suspended by constant force springs, counterbalanced to “float” in midair, so that a few ounces of force will move it in either direction. When pushed in contact with books to be pressed, the platen is locked to the posts. Depending on the desired pressing force, two to four effortless quarter-turns of a ratchet wrench can produce a pressing force of up to 3,000 lbs.
