Bourg Document Finisher (BDF-e) In-Line / Off-Line / Near-Line / Dual-Mode

Bourg Document Finisher (BDF-e)

The Bourg Document Finisher (BDF-e) is an entry-level compact and fully automated booklet maker. All parameters are controlled by a user-friendly color touchscreen interface in which stitching, folding, and trimming operations are completed in a single enclosed unit. This guarantees set integrity and a maximum speed of 4,200 booklets/hour.

The BDF-e is connectable In-Line with a BSF and seamlessly integrates the benefits of Off-Line and In-Line finishing, ideal for customers hesitating between Off-Line and In-Line finishing (see the description of the BSF).

Since the BDF-e can be directly connected to multiple print engines such as Xerox and Océ/Canon,it is the perfect choice for in-plants or commercial print shops that need to produce booklets in production runs from one to thousands.

Produce automatically A5 to A4 booklet size and even more…

Final dimensions of booklets produced by the BDF-e range from 76 x 120 mm (2.99 X 4.72 in) up to 260 mm x 356 mm (10.23 x 14.01 in) to a maximum speed of 4200 sets/hour.

The BDF-e is able to stitch fold trim up to 22 sheets, stitches up to 55 sheets, and folds up to 22 sheets (88 pages) booklets without scuffing or marking.

Create the solution that responds to your needs

The BDF-e is compatible with several C.P. Bourg machines.

With the Bourg Sheet Feeder (BSF), for example, the BDF-e can be connected directly in In-Line and Near-Line mode to multiple print engines such as Xeror and Océ/Canon and Kodak and can quickly produce booklets.

Connected In-Line to the Bourg Bleed Crease Module (BCM-e), the BCM-e will perform the highest quality knife creasing, top and bottom bleeding. Adding the Square Edge Module (SQE) to the configuration will transform traditional stitch-fold-trim booklets into square edged booklets. Booklets produced are flat and easy to stack.

With the BDF-e, we can load a job in one or both BST-e tower collators and be up and running on a job literally within one minute. And job changeovers are equally fast and easy.

Mike Hammond, co-owner

Having an in-house operation makes it possible to achieve both goals. It also means we can handle jobs at the 11th hour that often can’t be done outside. Plus, with the Bourg BCM-e(x) and BDF-e(x), we’re able to finish full-bleed marketing materials printed on our large-format iGen4 - something that even many commercial printers can’t do. If we didn’t have floor-space limitations, I would add a second Bourg Bleed Crease Module for our other iGen4.

The color and accuracy of print from the iGen4 Press is superior even compared to the iGen3 Press, and every bit as good as the print from a Heidelberg press. Adding the Bourg BCM-e(x) and BDF-e(x) finishers ensure their finished products maintain that high quality.

Jeffrey Taranto, Manager

The Bourg BBF2005 binding and BDF-e(x) finishing equipment [in-line with a Xerox printer] has proven quite reliable, despite the fact for nearly seven years it has been used routinely 16 hours a day, five days a week.
There’s not a lot of binding options out there that could keep up with the equipment I have right now. And we’re going to keep doing it the way we’ve been doing it, because it literally saves us millions of dollars.
