P.S. Finishing Gets Perfect Complement
NEW BERLIN, WI—P.S. Finishing recently installed a Standard Horizon BQ-470 book binder. The fully automated, four-clamp BQ-470 perfect binder is flexible enough to easily accommodate short runs, while still capable of efficiently handling larger jobs.
“Acquisition of the Horizon BQ-470 perfect binder complements our existing equipment, as we continue our commitment to the book rebinding and short-run edition binding markets,” notes Paul Slotty, owner of P.S. Finishing.
P.S. Finishing’s Horizon BQ-470 is fed by a Nord-son DuraPail bulk adhesive melter, which processes PUR adhesives for high-quality finished books. The use of PUR adhesives provides high durability and improved page pull strength.
The Horizon BQ-470 perfect binder is fully automated to simplify changeovers. A color LCD touchscreen provides easy setup and operation.
Alaska Printer Warms Up New Equipment
JUNEAU, AK—When Alaska Litho moved to more spacious quarters last year, the 37-year-old commercial printer decided to spruce up its equipment arsenal, as well. That meant enhancements to the press and bindery.
The printer replaced an aging Heidelberg GTO with a new four-color Printmaster PM 74 press, and picked up a Polar cutting system and Stahlfolder B 26 folder for its postpress lineup.
With 16 employees and yearly sales of $2.5 million, Alaska Litho provides a regional customer base comprised of government agencies, small corporations, the seafood industry and tourism-related businesses with brochures, rack cards, calendars, posters, cookbooks, promotional materials and annual reports.
