C.P. Bourg showcases automated booklet making at Print 18 – including book-of-one workflow

The C.P. Bourg BB3002 Perfect Binder.

At the recently concluded Print 18 tradehow, the OEM showcased its unique Bourg Binder BB3002 Perfect Binder that can produce on-demand, full-colour printed books in quantities starting at one book, and from large to small book sizes – from small square books to larger custom sizes. The binder is ideal for on-demand customized applications, producing single books from 2 to 600 sheets (with 90 gsm) “in record time.” The BB3002 adapts all features automatically to the thickness of each job. Therefore no manual set-up is required. This allows a peak speed of 650 cycles per hour – the best in its category.

This two-minute, explanatory video (below) from industry veteran and C.P. Bourg Executive Regional Sales Manager Don Schroeder, illustrates how the BB3002 can be incorporated seamlessly into a highly-automated workflow in conjunction with the latest technology from Ultimate Bindery and Challenge Machinery.
