Bindagraphics acquires short-run Pur Perfect Binder

Friday, August 13, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Baltimore, MD – Bindagraphics, Inc., a leading trade bindery, finishing and packaging company, recently installed a new Horizon PUR Perfect Binder.
"This binder fits a sweet spot for short runs that require a quick turnaround," says Matt Anson, President of the trade bindery. "Printers have a hard time being competitive when selling digitally printed books, due to the high setup cost of a traditional perfect binder. With this acquisition, we enable those printers to penetrate the 'books on demand' market, which can open doors for them to bigger projects down the road."

The Horizon BQ-470 perfect binder features a fully-automated setup for fast changeovers. Its four-clamp elliptical track can produce over 1,000 books per hour, while accommodating ultra thin to thick books (1/64" to 2.5" bulk), whether pocket sized or oversized (4.25" to 12.5" bind edge).

Anson explains why Bindagraphics chose to upgrade the machine to offer printers a choice between PUR and regular binding glue: "Some digitally printed books require PUR binding to ensure they won't fall apart when oils and chemicals in the ink react with the glue. But we have found that, even where regular glue would suffice, many printers prefer PUR bound books for their ability to lay flatter when opened, allowing printers to really show off their crossovers."

Anson plans to offer his customers 24-hour turnaround on nearly every job that runs on the new machine, adding "what's not to love about PUR binding on demand?"
