Standard Finishing Systems: New Fully Automated, Stand-alone Perfect Binder
Press release from the issuing company
Andover, Massachusetts – Standard Finishing Systems recently introduced the Standard Horizon BQ-270 Perfect Binder. The BQ-270 features high-quality production perfect binding with fully-automated operation and push-button simplicity.
The BQ-270 single-clamp binder is designed for single-person production of up to 500 books per hour, and requires minimal operator training. Standard features include an intelligent touch-screen control console, newly-developed adhesive application and side-gluing system, automatic air-suction cover feeding with in-line scoring, job programming, and same-location loading and unloading for easier single-person operation. The BQ-270, with its state-of-the-art design, compact configuration, and full automation, is positioned to meet the demands of the short-run, print-on-demand book market.
According to David R. Reny, vice president and managing director, Standard Finishing Systems, “The BQ-270 is now the most feature-rich fully-automated single-clamp binder on the market, setting a new standard for ease-of-use, book quality, and production efficiency. Once again, Horizon has demonstrated their engineering leadership in perfect binding.”
The BQ-270 can perfect bind books with sheet sizes from 5.9” x 4.2” to 12.5” x 12.5”. Up to 3.1 inches of cover stock can be loaded into the top-feed cover station, and books up to 2” thick can be produced on the BQ-270 at speeds up to 500 per hour.
"The BQ-270 has several features generally found only in more expensive multiple-clamp systems," adds Reny, "With this binder, printers of all sizes can now profit from the growing short-run book publishing and manual production markets."
