Press release from the issuing company

PHILADELPHIA, May 19 - Standard Finishing Systems, a market leader in feeding and finishing solutions for the graphic arts and print on demand markets, was recognized at this year's ON DEMAND Conference & Exposition with the Best of Show award in the Bindery / Finishing category for the Standard Horizon BQ-470 Perfect Binder. This new binder features end-to-end automation, color touch-screen control, and interchangeable glue tanks for application flexibility. BERTL, the independent research firm focused on digital imaging, partnered with the ON DEMAND Conference & Exposition to produce the awards program. The ON DEMAND Conference & Expo is the world's leading digital printing conference and exposition, which encompasses all the technologies that are used to create, manage, personalize, print and deliver content. BERTL's Dave Sweetnam, vice president, Research and Content Development; Karl Rudisill, director, Digital Production Division; and Rich McAllister, senior solutions and market analyst, acted as award judges. The Standard Horizon BQ-470 is the latest in an expanding line of products that draw on Horizon's core competence in finishing automation. The BQ-470 binder's 10" LCD touch-screen is used to provide stepper motor-controlled automation to the professional-quality mid-range binding market for the first time. The BQ-470 can cycle at up to 1,350 books per hour, bind books up to 2.5" thick, and meet varying customer requirements with optional interchangeable glue tanks for both hot-melt EVA and PUR adhesives. "The 2006 ON DEMAND Best of Show program serves a valuable purpose by identifying the innovation leaders in our industry," said David Reny, Managing Director of Standard Finishing Systems. "It's a great honor to have the committee select the Standard Horizon BQ-470, and it affirms our continuing strategy to bring productivity, performance, and advanced automation to every area of the bindery."
