The Ipswich-based company took on the machine to replace an existing Horizon binder, with the new device offering perfect binding and on-demand production of variable thickness books.

The Horizon BQ-270V also boasts an automated, sensor-activated digital caliper system that consistently measures book block thickness and transfers this data to the binder for quick, automated set-up for books.

“It was time to replace the system we had; the choice was straight forward as we are very used to Horizon systems,” PJ Print managing director Ben Perkins says.

“As well as the binder we were updating we also have a StitchLiner, folder and a creaser. There was no need to look at what else was on the market.

“We like Horizon because the build quality of the systems is good and they are easy to use. The BQ-270V went straight in and is running very well. The quality of the bind has improved ten-fold and that is exactly what we were expecting.”
