The BQ-270V single-clamp perfect binder offers high-quality production perfect binding with fully automated operation, push-button simplicity, and on-demand production of variable thickness books. The binder includes an automated, sensor-activated digital calliper system which consistently measures book block thickness and automatically transfers this data to the binder for quick, automated set-up with no cycle lag time for books of different thicknesses. Designed to meet the needs of the short-run, print-on-demand book market, the BQ-270V also features single-person production of up to 500 books per hour, automatic air-suction cover feeding with in-line scoring, a large 10.4″ intelligent colour touch-screen, job programming, and a compact design.

  • Horizon expertise in binding and advanced automation combine to allow the quick and simple production of professional quality books with sharp, square spines, from the first book to last.
  • All set-up is completed in less than one minute by inputting the necessary information through the 10.4 inch color touchscreen.
  • Changeover from A4 to A5 takes about 10 seconds.
  • Produce books up to 50 mm thick at a maximum speed of 500 cycles per hour.
  • Strong, rigid nipping and cover scoring stations are comparable to larger industrial book binders, for strong, accurate binding.
  • User-friendly operation and precision automation achieve short set-ups and make-readies. The BQ-270V contributes to environmentally friendly production with minimal spoilage.
  • Every book can be a different thickness for true on demand production. Built in thickness caliper provides even greater production efficiency.
  • System can be enhanced with JDF workflow from upstream to the postpress using pXnet bindery control system.
  • Changeover from A4 to A5 takes no more than 15 seconds.
  • Optional barcode reader.
