Bourg Book Compiler (BBC) In-Line / Off-Line / Near-Line / Dual-Mode

Bourg Book Compiler (BBC)

The Bourg Book Compiler (BBC) enables you to use the BB3002 perfect binder in In-Line mode behind a printer; or in Near-Line behind a Bourg Sheet Feeder (BSF) to process jobs from other printers.

The BBC compiles sheets or single fold signatures coming from previous devices (BSF or BPRF) or print engine. Once the book block is completed, the BBC transfers the stack into the BB3002 to bind it immediately. This results in increased productivity as no intervention of an operator is needed to bind books and there is no need to wait for all book blocks of the job queue to be prepared before starting binding/finishing operations.

Four reasons to use an In-Line binder (BB3002 + BBC) behind your printer

  1. Faster turnaround time
  2. Minimize risk for human errors
  3. Fast compiling of a wide range of book thickness from 1 to 60 mm (0.04 – 2.36 in)
  4. Reduce job recovery activity
