Bourg BSF In-Line with Watkiss PowerSquare™ 224 In-Line / Off-Line / Near-Line / Dual-Mode

Bourg BSF In-Line with Watkiss PowerSquare™ 224

The Bourg BSF In-Line with the PowerSquare™ 224 is an innovative complete booklet making system for high production environments of on demand booklets. This solution combines the three processes of stitching, form folding, and trimming to produce SquareBack™ booklets. As an added advantage, printed sheets require not handling between these processes.

For customers hesitating between Off -Line and In-Line fi nishing, this dual mode solution off ers the best of both worlds. It allows multiple printers to share one fi nishing device. Positioned In-Line between a printer and the finishing equipment, the Bourg BSF In-Line with the PS224 allows digital and off set print shops with different printers to easily merge job production using the Dual-Mode (by shifting between In-Line and Off -Line/Near-Line modes), achieving productivity increases while maintaining integrity of collated output.

Compatible In-Line with:

Canon / Océ
Kodak
Konica Minolta
Watkiss
Xerox

Flexible In-Line solution

The Bourg BSF In-Line with the PS224 offers three modes of operation for greater job flexibility:

  1. In-Line operation : automatic flow of sheets from the printer through the BSF and into the PS224, without any operator intervention. Sheets, such as laminated covers, may be inserted via the BSF during the In-Line process;
  2. Off -Line/Near-Line operation: autonomous running of the PS224 while the printer is turned off or preforming other tasks;
  3. Dual-Mode enables your in line fi nisher to operate off -line. This feature allows your printer to pass sheets to the attached In-Line PS224 directly or your In-Line PS224 can accepts stacks of printed material from other printers via the BSF. The system will run for up to an hour unattended.

The BSF In-Line with the PowerSquare™ 224 can be connected to a large number of printers: Canon/Océ, Kodak, Xerox, etc. (for more details, see the section "connectability")

SquareBack books

The finished SquareBack™ booklets lie flat and are easy to pack, stack and handle. There is no risk of loose pages and you can print on the spine.

Easy to use

The Bourg BSF In-Line with the PowerSquare™ 224 is extremely easy to use. Simply enter the fully stacked trolley in the BSF, enter the job parameters (paper size and number of stitches) into the touchscreen and press ‘start’.

This solution automatically sets the stitch position, the wire draw length (the stitch leg length), the amount of spine form required and the trim dimension. To make repeat jobs easier still, you can save the settings, each with a unique name, for instant recall when required.

This solution requires less capital outlay since two machines finish virtually all production. It has the added advantage that printed sheets do not need any manual handling between different finishing devices.
