Quadriscan Installs Standard/Horizon Binder
Quadriscan of Montreal, Quebec has installed Standard/Horizon BQ-470 PUR perfect binder, purchased from KBR Graphics Canada.
“We used to send the work out before but now we can keep it under our own roof, ensure high quality, and provide faster turnaround for our customers,” said Roger Blanchette, president of Quadriscan. “We are able to streamline production for shorter runs to meet and often exceed client deadlines. We’re very proud of our excellent products and our customers love the new machine and the binding process.”
The BQ-370 is a fully automated four-clamp machine that can produce up to 1,350 perfect bound books per hour at up to 2.5 inches thick.
While most of Quadriscan’s work is produced for the Montreal vicinity, the firm has also gaining international clients. “We work for a book publisher in France that supplies books to many French-speaking countries such as Mali, Madagascar, Côte d’Ivoire, Chad, Cameroon, and Congo,” says Blanchette. “Adding the BQ-470 with PUR aids our efforts in producing these important books for the local centers to continue usage of the French language. Having PUR adhesive will ensure that the book binding is maintained and does not crack or melt in the diverse climate and weather conditions in Africa — from dry to humid, cold, and hot.”
