pragnant gold blockerThe PraGnant gold blocking machine is a foil blocking press specifically designed for the needs of those within the book arts and library binders within the book arts.

The typeholders are self-centering and, by means of a quick-acting clamp, they allow an extremely easy and quick change of single type or complete lines. This qualifies the PraGnant to be used wherever ”one-off“ titles are to be blocked.


The book case (or other product) is placed upright into the gold blocking machine, so that the blocking process can be observed all the time and if necessary be repeated without touching the case or taking it out of the blocking machine. Expensive faulty blocking's are therefore eliminated.


The good view onto the case while blocking ma­kes the machine also suitable for special gilding.


This Gold Blocking machine is fine for blocking ornaments.

A unique piece of equipment for a wide range of applications, including bookbinding, pattern book manufacturing and gold-blocking departments. Moreover, the quick change of type as well as the easy handling of the machine help to reduce costs in the field of gold blocking.
