LIBRARY AND ARCHIVE BOX MAKING SOLUTION
Protecting collections both whilst in storage and in transit has long been a challenge for those who hold collections around the world. There is plenty of information available that proves the value of the right box or enclosure, both from mechanical and environmental damage perspective. For example CollectionTrust and ICON
Space is often an issue for collection holders, as is finding the right enclosure for the right object. Although CXD can provide you with many solutions to your storage issues, if you want to take this into your own hands at your institution, we offer the KASEMAKE CXD.
OUR ESTABLISHED HISTORY WITH KASEMAKE
In 1992 CXD explored and produced the first bespoke Premier Duo™ Archival Solid core boxes made on a KASEMAKE CXD computer-aided design and boxmaking machine. In 1996 CXD sold the first European system for in-house customer use to the National Library of Scotland. Since that time we have been pleased to offer this solution to many establishments both domestically and worldwide. Please take a look at our customer list.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The software contains an extensive library of designs conforming to the international standards for both solid board (ECMA) and corrugated board (FEFCO). Using the KASEMAKE CXD software, box designs from these libraries can be manipulated and sampled to create new designs as required. In addition, an extensive and ever-growing library of designs created specifically for the conservation of books and archive documents is included in the package. For further support there is a KASEMAKE CXD Library and Archive user-group who also share designs and knowledge of the system.
The creasing and cutting table comes in three models; ‘The Library and Archive Mini', 'The Library and Archive Mini Grand’ and ‘The Library and Archive Grand’ which differ only in the working area (WXD); 1300 x 1000mm, 1300 x 1600mm, and 1600 x 2500mm, respectively. Both tables provide the same accurate cutting and unmatched creasing of CXD Premier Duo ™ Solidcore and Corrugated boxboard. KASEMAKECXD offers one tool carriage as standard which carries two cutting knives a creasing tool and a plotting pen.
There are two knives; the ‘Tangential Drag Knife’ is designed for use with solidcore board and the ‘Electric Oscillating Knife’ is for corrugated board and foam up to 15mm thick.
At the heart of KASEMAKE CXD is the ‘Tangential Creasing Tool’ which is driven by powerful servo motors that ensure enough pressure is delivered to the creasing wheel. This power is needed to ensure that Archival Solidcore board folds well with minimum cracking along the creases.
The plotting pen uses a bleed-proof and light-fast black ink.
24 month parts warranty.
