Horizon BQ-500

Perfect Binder

The Horizon BQ-500 perfect binder is designed for increased book-of-one productivity, increased automation, and increased quality control over a wider range of substrates regardless of run length. The system features an improved and easy-to-use 12.1” touchscreen for quick setup, an ergonomic design for efficient, operator-friendly operation, and an enhanced delivery system for thin books.

Variable production: The BQ-500 is the most productive binder for book-of-one production in its class. In a variable range of +/-5mm, the BQ-500 can reach production speeds of up to 800 books per hour, almost double the productivity of other binders in this range.

Case binding and add-ons:  Enhancements like the LBF-500 Book Block Feeder and case binding accessories like the GF-500 Gauze Feeder and ESF-1000 End Sheet Feeder allow you to tailor the BQ-500 to fit your unique production needs.

Advanced automation: The BQ-500 features 21 automated sections in total, reducing setup and changeover time even when making fine variable thickness adjustments – all while ensuring higher quality books.

Clean spine preparation:  Improved milling waste removal, a newly designed air flow, and an improved glue application system help ensure high-quality production.

EVA and PUR: The BQ-500 features interchangeable EVA and PUR glue tanks with a new and improved tank removal process for cleaner and easier tank changeover.

Gentle delivery: To prevent damage to more delicate books, the BQ-500 has reduced the book drop from 150mm to only 5mm. Books are then gently lowered to the delivery belt.
