Graphiscan adds new book binding solution from Standard Finishing

February 23, 2024  By PrintAction Staff

Graphiscan, a printing, direct mail, and graphic communication company with three locations in and around Montreal, has purchased new book binding equipment manufactured by Standard Finishing Systems’ partner Horizon International. The book binding solution, installed by Standard Horizon dealer RM Machinery, includes the Horizon LBF-500 Book Block Feeder, BQ-500 Perfect Binder, GF-500 Gauze Feeder, and HT-1000V Three-Knife Trimmer.

The new Horizon line, which replaces an older Horizon perfect binding and trimming solution, will increase Graphiscan’s capacity as the BQ-500 can process up to 800 books per hour. The company will now also be able to handle both softcover book production and hardcover book preparation with the same system.

“Our business is expanding, and as we look to ramp up our case binding production, this solution is a perfect fit for our current job mix,” said Denis Gagnon, president at Graphiscan. “The system can easily switch between fully automated softcover production, which is still the majority of our work, and book block preparation for case binding when required, enabling us to offer our customers a wider range of capabilities and quicker turnaround. Standard Horizon has been a longstanding and reliable partner, so the decision to work with them on this upgrade project was an easy one.”
