The new Bourg BCME-series machines are able to precision-trim up to 350 gsm coated or uncoated stock in sizes from 7 x 8 inches to 14.33 x 22.5 inches – the largest format of any bleed-trim device designed for digital printing. Advanced stepper-motor scoring cylinder technology unique to C.P. Bourg creases sheets on the fly as they travel through the machine, without impeding productivity. An oversized waste bin makes it possible for the BCME to run four hours before being emptied on the fly as the machine continues production, while a bypass function affords Bourg BCME models the flexibility to crease without trimming, or to allow sheets to pass through with no action taken.
"C.P. Bourg E-series products take print finishing to the next level of automation and productivity," Mr. Trapilo explains. "Our new BCME Bleed Crease Modules significantly enhance the versatility of any Bourg production line with full-format bleed trimming and on-the-fly creasing in a compact, efficient package."
The new Bourg BCME and BCMEx Bleed Crease Modules will be shown in various configurations at this year's drupa exhibition in Dusseldorf, Germany May 3-16, 2012, along with tens of other C.P. Bourg finishing products and modular production lines for conventional, digital, mixed, and new dual-mode production environments.
