|PJ Print Enhances Perfect Binding with Horizon Buy
General commercial Ipswich operation PJ Print, has chosen a Horizon BQ-270V single clamp perfect binder from Intelligent Finishing Systems to update its binding capabilities.
On investing in the like for like replacement for an existing ageing Horizon binder Ben Perkins, Managing Director, says: “It was time to replace the system we had. The choice was straight forward as we are very used to Horizon systems. 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.”
He continues: “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.”
As for return on investment Perkins says: “We got the binder because we needed it and it has been great. We are now being asked to demo for potential IFS customers.”
PJ Print’s 500cph Horizon BQ-270V single-clamp perfect binder offers high-quality perfect binding and on-demand production of variable thickness books.
It includes an automated, sensor activated digital caliper system which consistently measures book block thickness and automatically transfers this data to the binder for quick, automated set-up for books of different thicknesses. It features a large 10.4″ intelligent colour touchscreen, job programming, and a compact configuration.
It will handle litho print from the PJ Print’s four colour Komori Lithrone S429 H-UV and digital print from a Ricoh Pro C7200.
