Standard Horizon CABS 6000 (17 clamp perfect binder system)

The innovative Standard Horizon CABS 6000 perfect binding system is bringing new levels of automation to production bookbinding. The system includes the MG-600 Gatherer, SB-17 seventeen-clamp Perfect Binder, and HT-110 Three-knife Trimmer.

This in-line system can produce up to 6,000 books/hour. Each component is equipped with an icon-based 10.4” color touch screen that enables end-to-end automated setup in ten minutes or less, and the ability to memorize 200 jobs for instant recall.

Up to six MG-600 Gatherers can be placed in-line for a total of 36 stations, feeding up to 64-page signatures ranging from 5.83”x4.14” to 15.15”x 10.8”. Features for the MG-600 include an in-line stacker for stand alone gathering, and advanced quality control features such as CCD cameras, thickness detection, and weight checking.

The SB-17 Perfect Binder allows for quick changeover from EVA to PUR adhesive with interchangeable tanks and book thicknesses from .08” to 2”.  The CABS 6000 is equipped with quick-change EVA and PUR glue tanks that slide out on rails to a wheeled trolley. Operators can easily changeover from one binding style to another in about 5 minutes. This flexibility lets printers serve more market segments and meet varying customer application requirements.  Features for the SB-17 include CCD cameras on the cover feeder, ability to load covers on-the-fly, twin milling stations, automated in-line cover scoring, gauze feeding for hard cover book blocks, weight checking system and a digital caliper that measures book size and thickness and transfers settings to the binder for automated setup.

The HT-110 Three-knife Trimmer produces trimmed books from 5.71”x4.05” to 14.4”x11.81”.
