London-based commercial print company Print4UK has moved perfect binding in-house by investing in a Horizon BQ-270V single clamp perfect binder from Intelligent Finishing Systems.

Features on the Horizon BQ-270V binder include a colour touch-screen, job programming and a compact configuration.

The new 500cph binder enables perfect binding and on-demand production of variable thickness books – supporting Print4UK’s wide range of print services.

The Horizon BQ-270V also has an automated, sensor-activated digital calliper system, which measures book block thickness and transfers this data to the binder for the automated set-up for books of different thicknesses.

In addition, the binder features a 10.4” colour touch-screen, job programming and a compact configuration.

John Attard, director of corporate services at Print4UK, comments: “We did look at other machines but felt that the BQ-270V was better suited to meet our business model.

“We liked the fact start up and close down are quick and hassle-free, there are very few make-readies required and the quality of the finish is consistently excellent.

“This machine has an authentic commercial feel to it with an outstanding cycle speed. The automatic cover feed and scoring is done efficiently and is a huge advantage compared with manual feed machines. It is really easy to operate and all of our staff on the shop floor love it.”
