ProductStandard Perfect Binding Machine (BQ-160)

The BQ-160 Perfect Binder from Standard is the ideal machine for the short run/on-demand marketplace. Designed specifically for cut sheet applications, the BQ-160 offers very simple operation, making it easy for any operator to achieve quality books with minimal training. With its innovative and ergonomically friendly design, rugged construction, and perfect binding speeds ranging up to 150 books per hour, the BQ-160 will provide years of trouble-free operation. Its innovative and ergonomically friendly design promotes maximum output, while its rugged construction will provide years of trouble free operation. Mounted on heavy duty castors, the BQ-160 can be easily moved to where you need it.

Product Details

  • Easy Operation: Unlike other perfect binders, the BQ-160 requires little adjustment. A simple switch allows the operator to immediately select one of three binding modes: perfect binding with two way notching (for maximum book strength); perfect binding without notching (for very thin books); and padding. The notching, adhesive application and nipper clamping are all automatic. The only thing the operator needs to do is place a cover into position.
  • Precision Engineering: The superior design of the BQ-160 for the cut sheet market lets the operator produce big machine quality without the complication, noise and residual paper dust of bigger perfect binders. Since the on-demand market primarily uses cut sheets and requires a clean operating environment, the BQ-160 is uniquely designed to meet these needs. Its two way notching of the book block provides twice as many notches for maximum adhesive penetration --- creating not only an extra strong bind, but a cleaner, quieter operating environment.
  • Optimum Performance: Another unique feature of the BQ-160, commonly found on more expensive binders, is its dynamic nipper table which automatically senses and adjusts to the size of the book. This not only produces a strong, square bind every time, but simplifies operation as well. A cover detection sensor prevents the unit from cycling until a cover is positioned, minimizing waste and maximizing productivity. Whether you're looking to move up from a table-top binder, or want to bring your binding in-house to improve your turnaround and increase your profitability, the Standard BQ-160 Perfect Binder is the perfect choice.
  • Simple Operator Controls: With no complicated adjustments, the BQ-160's userfriendly design couldn't be easier.
  • Clean Operation: An efficient paper dust vacuum system keeps the environment clean and helps insure a consistently strong bind. An extra large paper dust bag is fully enclosed, but easily accessed and detached for cleaning and emptying.

Hello! I’m Dan Guzman and this is the Standard Horizon BQ-160 Perfect Binder. The Standard BQ-160 Perfect Binder can also serve as a padder and a tape binder. The basic operation – insert the book block, press the clamp button, and start the process. The book goes over the notching station, notches it one time, waits for the operator to place the cover on to the cover table, and then restart the process, whereby it notches the book block a second time, applies the glue, then applies the cover. When the cover has set up long enough, the clamp automatically opens to drop the book, then the book slide out for a nice, perfectly bound squared edge. A couple of the features of the BQ-160 is the operator chooses what mode they’re going to be binding in, whether it’s perfect binding, tape binding, or padding. Padding will automatically shut off the notching. The operator has several adjustments for the notching, whether they want to notch in one direction or two, and more involved adjustments for the operator – clamping pressure, clamping time, clamping height, and clamping angle. The operator selects from those. The operator can also select the cover positioning. The operator is allowed to set the cover in the same place every time in how it’s set on the screen, the machine can move the book block either a quarter of an inch up or a quarter of an inch down on the cover automatically, so there’s no fiddling with the mechanical adjustments. The machine can do the work. And if you do make a parameter change for a specific job, you can go back to the defaults at any time and it returns it back to the center. When you’re changing the sizes, say were just doing a 5/8 inch thick book and now we needed to do something that is a quarter of an inch, when we select that, clamp that book in place, in gives the operator an indication that they need to change the glue thickness. The operator comes in and sets the glue thickness according to what it displays on the screen, and completes the process as normal. Again, we have a nice, perfect bound book with nice sharp square edges, cover placement is just a little bit in to the top so that on your trimming you can clean up the edges. With the production speed on this binder, of all the same size job, same thickness book, a good operator is going to average between 150-160 books per hour, realistically. If they’re doing a lot of change over, there’s a few seconds added for changing the glue size, but there’s no other adjustments that the operator has to make. This binder is capable of binding up to 1.6 inch block. Again, the glue setting. Again, nice sharp, square edges all the way through and great cover adhesion. For a padding application, the operator sets it to padding mode, minimizes the glue setting. A little too thick. The machine senses when it’s too thick to make a correct book. You can tell by the sounds that the roughening was automatically turned off, and it’s an automatic cycle. When the book block is ready and the padding mode come out of the machine, you’ll get a signal, the book drops, and now you have nice, thin application of glue and perfect tear-away pads.

Questions & Answers
Q:
Looking at the BQ-160 Perfect Binder video. Do you know if the covers that are being used in the video are pre-creased? Is pre-creasing necessary with this binder?
Asked by Mark
A:
Thank you for your question. The covers in the video for the Standard BQ-160 Perfect Binding Machine are not pre-scored. Pre-scoring is not necessary but depending on the size your cover stock books may need to face trimmed.
