C.P. Bourg Unveils Bourg Booklet Maker ExPress for HP Indigo 7000 Digital Presses
CHICAGO—September 4, 2013—C.P. Bourg, a leading developer and supplier of on-demand document binding and finishing equipment, today announced the first inline booklet making system available for HP Indigo digital presses.
This industry-first production finishing solution, called the Bourg Booklet Maker ExPress (BM-e ExPress), was developed by C.P. Bourg in collaboration with HP to offer fully integrated digital finishing capabilities to users of HP Indigo 7000 series digital presses.
The world debut of the Bourg Booklet Maker ExPress will take place at PRINT 13 in the HP booth, #1241, where it will be presented operating with an HP Indigo 7600 digital press.
The Bourg Booklet Maker ExPress is aimed at the expansive high-quality, full-color booklet-making segment of the stitch-fold-trim finishing market in digital on-demand and Web-to-print production environments. The robust inline booklet maker is able to operate "24/7" at the full-rated speed of the HP Indigo 7000 series digital press to which it is connected.
Because the booklet maker is fully integrated, automated and synchronized with the HP Indigo Press, it can produce even ultra-short-run jobs quickly and with superb quality, without operator intervention.
"The new Bourg Booklet Maker ExPress reflects the full measure of C.P. Bourg's experience as the pioneer and leader in digital inline finishing and our dedication to providing print professionals with products of the highest quality, innovation and efficiency," remarked Christian P. Bourg, president and founder, C.P. Bourg Group. "We are pleased to collaborate with HP on this significant product development, and we plan to build upon our successful history with HP through our continued introduction of innovative solutions."
'A new world of possibilities'
According to Robert Raus, Americas category manager, HP SmartStream Workflow and Solution Partner Program, the new Bourg Booklet Maker ExPress opens the door to a new world of print finishing possibilities for HP Indigo users.
