Horizon BQ-280 PUR Perfect Binder Book Machine

This Horizon BQ-280 PUR Perfect Binder is the best in its class. The Horizon BQ-280 is a PUR Perfect Binder that uses an open tank. Unlike the extrusion style perfect binders on the market the open tank can never clog and is a much more consistent and easier experience for the operators of these machines.

Pages falling out of a book is a nightmare. Producing hundreds of books and getting a phone call that the pages are coming out is every manufacturer's greatest fear. For instance, customers calling about paper falling out is a nightmare for book producers. In hot weather especially during bouncy transportation the books can come apart. Therefore, many producers become strict about what papers they use for books.

The Horizon BQ-280 PUR Perfect Binder is a perfect match for digital printed books. Pages will bond chemically with the adhesive and oils from the toner won't matter. PUR glue is excellent with coated and digital stocks. For example, glossy coated covers and coated book blocks will stay together without problems.

Horizon's BQ-280PUR Perfect Binder is specially designed to handle the unique requirements of digital print.  As an example, quick set-ups and changeovers fit shorter production runs. The book-of-one capability works out of the box and in-line verification for document integrity if available as an option.

This book binder will produce high quality binds. The spines will be nipped square under even pressure. In addition, the PUR adhesive will help the books lay flatter than typical hot melt perfect binding machines. PUR glue is a superior formula that flexes more easily so the book doesn't close back up on the reader.
