The ergonomically designed Horizon HCB-2 Case Binder brings ultra-short-run hardcover book production to print-on-demand environments. The system allows hardcover books to be produced with more automation and less operator skill than ever before, with a professional quality that is equivalent to the look-and-feel of a commercially case-bound book. Applications for the HCB-2 include the on-demand color photo and memory book markets.

  • Simple to operate
  • Optional bar code verification system to ensure the correct matching of cover and book block
  • Simple to use color touchscreen
