Perfect Binder for Active Bindery

February 12, 2010  By Jon Robinson

Located just south of the Calgary International Airport, in the Airways Industrial Park, Active Bindery has installed a new Standard Horizon BQ-470, with production speeds of up to 1,350 cycles per hour.

The 4-clamp BQ-470, which binds books up to 2.55-inches thick, features interchangeable EVA/PUR adhesive tanks. At the most recent On Demand tradeshow, held in March 2009, Standard Horizon introduced two new accessories to the perfect binder.

First, a new PM-470 pre-melt tank allows for longer runs before adhesive replenishment and, second, the SI-470 digital caliper to measure book thickness (data is automatically transferred to binder for set up).


Active Bindery has supplied the Calgary printing market for 20 years, with finishing services like folding, collating, stitching, drilling, mailing, and various binding to custom tab cutting and laminating.

Active Bindery purchased the Standard Horizon BQ-470 from Calgary-based Quantum-Cortech Bindery Equipment, which serves most cities of Western Canada.
