C.P. Bourg Unveils Perfect Binder for Unattended Off-Line Book Production
“Although printing environments today can be demanding and unpredictable, short print runs, fast turnaround times and rising labor costs are almost guaranteed,” says James Tressler, Director of Marketing and Branch Operations, C.P. Bourg Inc.
“The BB3102 perfect binding system makes it possible for commercial and in-plant printers and specialty binders to address today’s often complex and unpredictable workflows with a versatile system that replaces the monotony and inconsistency of manually-guided short-run book production with predictability and high productivity,” he adds.
Options and Upgrades
Options to the new BB3102 include connection to a Challenge CMT 330 trimmer, and addition of a fully integrated barcode solution that enables job tracking to maximize productivity and integrity. This is especially useful in “book runs of one” where matching covers to content is critical.
Adding the barcode and trimmer options enables the BB3102 system to produce books -- from book blocks to final, trimmed output stacked and ready for dispatch -- entirely without operator intervention.
The new Bourg BB3102 is being shown here at Drupa 2012 May 3-16, 2012 on the C.P. Bourg stand 13B69.
It is available directly from C.P. Bourg offices worldwide or through the company’s distributors worldwide. First shipments are expected in January 2013.
