The Horizon BQ-160 PUR single-clamp perfect binder satisfies the fast-growing demand for short-run digital photo books and prepared book blocks for case binding, with its PUR adhesive system. The binder is also capable of padding and tape binding.  A dynamic color touchscreen allows the operator to easily adjust a range of settings including cover alignment with the spine, nipping pressure, clamping pressure and much more. Other features on the BQ-160 include energy-save and auto-off functions, the ability to notch in one or both directions, and an optional carbon air filtration system to reduce adhesive odors. The BQ-160 can produce extremely strong, high quality perfect bound books up to 1.6” thick at speeds up to 180 cycles per hour. The BQ-160 can handle light to moderate production needs in almost any environment.

The BQ-160 Binder can also be put in-line with the CRB-160 Cover Creaser.
