The C.P. Bourg BB3002 PUR combines Bourg’s system engineering with PUR dispensing technology from Nordson and adds it to Bourg’s highly automated BB3002 Perfect Binder. Finished books in perfect-bound and lay-flat applications can range in size from two sheets (eight pages) up to 2.36" thick, with cover dimensions of 3.5x3.9" to 12.59x15.15". It features tool-less set up using an icon-driven touchscreen to select and set functions automatically from a list of menu options. The compact, single-operator system also automatically measures book length and block thickness and calculates the centerline of the cover to fasten the spine, to meter the precise amount of PUR adhesive, and bind books of the same size and different thickness one after another automatically—without operator intervention. The unit can produce up to 350 books an hour.
