The Standard Horizon BQ-160 Single-clamp Perfect Binder is equipped with an intuitive, icon-based color touchscreen for fingertip adjustment of key parameters. This “intelligent automation” feature is built into all Horizon post-press products. With single-person operation, the BQ-160 can produce three popular types of binding: perfect binding, tape binding and pad binding – at speeds up to 180 cycles per hour with books up to 1.6” thick.
The BQ-160 is specifically designed for cut sheet applications, and offers very simple operation so any operator can easily produce professional quality books with minimal training. Other BQ-160 advantages include an electric book clamp, two-way notching, an efficient paper dust vacuum system, nipper height and tilt adjustment from the touchscreen, and a dynamic nipper table for auto book sizing.
