The Xerox (Booth 1213) iGen 150 Press with the C.P. Bourg BB3202 Perfect Binder and new PUR-C is the industry’s first fully automatic in-line/near-line PUR binder, designed to produce softcover books on demand – from single or multiple digital, analog or mixed workflows. The BB3202 comprises a modified Bourg BB3002 single-clamp binder and Bourg BBC transfer module to compile sheets or single-fold signatures and transfer stacks and covers into the binder.
Xerox Document Finishing Architecture seamlessly connects the finishing modules to the iGen 150. Options include the Bourg dual-mode BSFEx Sheet Feeder to produce books from both the in-line iGen press, as well as off-line from the other print devices; the Bourg Perf Rotate and Fold to create signatures from larger format printed sheets; and an in-line 3 Knife Trimmer from Challenge – ready to pack for shipment.
Combined with the iGen 150, the BB3202 automatically gauges spine thickness and sets jogging, power milling and notching, gluing, scoring and suction cover-feeding. The solution can produce 350 unique books per hour with finished books sizes from 3.9 x 3.9 inches to 15.15 x 12.6 inches, and spine thicknesses up to 2.36 inches stacked for trimming off-line, or automatically routed to optional three-sided trimming.
