Standard Finishing Systems has added to its line of perfect binding solutions with the Standard Horizon BQ-500 Perfect Binder. The system is designed for increased book-of-one productivity, increased automation, and increased quality control over a wider range of substrates compared to competitive models.

The system features an improved 12.1” touchscreen for quick setup; an ergonomic design for operator-friendly production; an enhanced delivery system for thin books; and more. 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.

The Horizon BQ-500 features interchangeable EVA and PUR glue tanks with a new and improved tank removal process. It is the first perfect binder to come equipped with iCE LINK, a new cloud-based monitoring tool from Horizon that can also handle KPI analysis, PM schedule/alerts, JDF/JMF workflow, scheduling, job creation, editing and more.
