Standard Horizon BQ-160 PUR / Perfect Binder-Padder-Tape Binder

The Standard 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 be put in-line with the CRB-160 Cover Creaser, which is setup through the color touchscreen on the BQ-160. The scoring position is set automatically according to the book thickness input into the BQ-160. The CRB-160 scores up to 150 lb. laminated covers, and a wide variety of scoring patterns can be selected from the touch screen. A stand alone model is also available with an integrated color touchscreen, and it is ideal for creasing covers, restaurant menus, greeting cards and other digital print applications.
