Standard Horizon HCM/HCP-1

The Standard Horizon HCM/HCP-1 Case Binding System 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.

The Standard Horizon HCM/HCP-1 Case Binding System is comprised of two modules: a Hardcover Maker and a Hardcover Press.

Operators simply enter the book size on the touchscreen, and the display guides them through all case preparation steps with a high degree of automation.

Book blocks can be EVA or PUR adhesive-bound on a Standard Horizon BQ-series perfect binder.
