Fuller Davies had been on the lookout for kit to bring perfect binding in house and opted for the 500cph Horizon BQ-270V, which offers perfect binding and on-demand production of variable thickness books.

The device also features an automated, sensor-activated digital calliper system that consistently measures book block thickness and automatically transfers this data to the binder, as well as a large colour touch-screen, job programming and a compact configuration.

The company produces catalogues and brochures, running a B1 Heidelberg litho press with InPress Control and a Kodak NexPress digital press with long sheet and special finishes capability.

We wanted an easy-to-use, quality binder that would give us the ability to turn perfect binding jobs around quickly.

Neil Stone, managing director of Fuller Davies, says: “We have been considering bringing perfect binding in house for a while. After analysing our run lengths, we found our average binding run was 2,000 or below so the timing felt right.

“We wanted an easy-to-use, quality binder that would give us the ability to turn perfect binding jobs around quickly. The BQ270V helps us to do just that.”

He adds: “Being able to produce perfect binding in house easily has made our production more efficient and meant we can be more responsive. We have a couple of team members who are familiar with Horizon binders already and others are already very confident and really pleased with how well it runs.”
