When Art Projects For Schools wanted to elevate its perfect binding capabilities it chose to invest in the bind quality of the Intelligent Finishing Systems supplied Horizon BQ-270V single clamp perfect binder.
“The investment was made to increase sales and enhance customer service,” explains Dan Dickey, CEO of the leading supplier of creative, fundraising projects for schools. “We had an older perfect binder and it was time to invest in a new system to elevate our capability and expand our capacity.”
He continues: “We liked the Horizon BQ-270V because of its speed and build quality. It will enable us to take on larger runs and offer faster turnaround times. It has been running well since it was installed and we are very pleased with it.”
As for expected return on investment Dickey says: “This is difficult to quantify. We have undertaken several new projects which require high quality and productivity. We expect ROI to come from productivity savings and business growth as a result of the quality we can now guarantee.”
Art Projects for Schools’ 500cph Horizon BQ-270V single-clamp perfect binder offers high-quality perfect binding and on-demand production of variable thickness books.
It includes an automated, sensor-activated digital caliper system which consistently measures book block thickness and automatically transfers this data to the binder for quick, automated set-up for books of different thicknesses. It features a large 10.4″ intelligent color touch-screen, job programming, and a compact configuration.
“We have found IFS to be a professional company with knowledgeable staff and good service,” Dickey concludes. “We will not hesitate to contact IFS when we next consider making an investment.”
