The Conservators Choice
In 2006 the Kasemake CXD Digital Book Measure was introduced. This is used in conjunction with the Kasemake CXD boxmaker. It is a tablet based measuring device combined with easy to use capture software that permits error free measurements of a book or archive object.
This clever device can work independently of the main Kasemake CXD system allowing it to be used in remote repositories to capture dimensions, title, author, archive or shelf reference number and other customised information as required. In addition to this cataloguing data, details on the required boxboard, box style and job priority can be specified. This information can be sent in batches via a network connection, e-mail or USB memory stick to a Kasemake CXD boxmaking machine. Logged information can be written on the box using the machine’s plotting pen to ensure that boxes can be matched to the correct object. Available in 3 popular sizes that will suit most Library and Archive needs, A0, A1 and A2.
Because it has stand alone software it can be bought by a small institution who might not have the space or budget for a Kasemake CXD boxmaker but have a large requirement for custom made boxes and folders. Measurements and data can be sent to Conservation By Design’s ‘Smart Box™’ service or any other Kasemake CXD boxmaker offering a similar service.
