Bourg Binder 3202 EVA / PUR-Compact In-Line / Near-Line / Dual-Mode

Bourg Binder 3202 EVA / PUR-Compact

The Bourg Binder BB3202 EVA/PUR-C is unique to the market: this is the only perfect binder designed to operate In-Line, Near-Line or Dual-Mode with digital printers and produce books without the intervention of an operator. The BB3202 is the result of a combination of the proven perfect binder BB3002 and the new Bourg Book Compiler (BBC). The BB3202 reduces your businesses print finishing costs and offers your clients short turnarounds for added value.

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. There is no need to wait for all book blocks of the job queue to be prepared before starting binding/finishing operations. Furthermore, as the barcode system is integrated to the binder, this machine offers a level of process integrity that exceeds operator-control. It enables printers to produce more on-demand books in a given amount of time while preventing costly errors.

The BB3202 EVA/PUR-C is ideal for on-demand printers and publishing houses (POD) and online bookshops. It will help printers and publishing warehouses to respond quickly to a demand of short-run book production and avoid storage of books in houses and in shops. It will help online bookshops producing a large quantity of “book runs of one” such as photo books and the production of single book orders.

By working In-Line with digital printers, the BB3202 EVA/PUR-C offers full production discretion to financial and governmental institutions.

Compatible In-Line with:

Canon / Océ
Challenge Machinery
Kodak
Xerox

Fast In-Line and fully automatic high-quality book production

In the In-Line mode, the BB3202 EVA/PUR-C produces perfect-bound books at a peak rate of 350 books per hour (up to 650 cycles/hour). Final dimensions of books produced by the Bourg BB3202 range from 195 x 139 mm (7.67 x 5.47 in) up to a maximum 370 x 320 mm (14.56 x 12.59 in), and in thickness from 1 to 60 mm (0.04 to 2.36 in).

Like the BB3002 on which it is based, the new BB3202 binder automatically adapts to the thickness of each job to process each book most productively, sets jogging, power milling and notching, gluing, scoring and suction cover-feeding without manual intervention.

Track production statistics to improve workflow efficiency

A proven barcode system is available as an option for any BB3202 configuration. The barcode system incorporates both book content and cover sensors to ensure accurate cover-to-content matching. Job integrity check and automatic communication with CMT trimmers makes it possible to track books through binding and trimming and to track production statistics to improve workflow efficiency.

Configuration flexibility

The BB3202 can be configured to operate In-Line with a digital printer directly or with a Bourg Sheet Feeder (BSF) for Near-Line/Dual-Mode automated production.

Placed In-Line between a printer and the finishing equipment, the Bourg Sheet Feeder (BSF) enables the In-Line finishing with the BB3202 to process jobs from other printers. The printer connected to the BB3202 may also send its output into a stacker while the BSF feeds other jobs into the BB3202 simultaneously. In this way, short-run jobs can be produced to satisfy immediate production needs without interrupting In-Line job setups, or to accommodate book blocks produced from other workflows.

The BB3202 sets the standard in In-Line perfect binding. Adding optional modules such as a perforate-rotate-fold unit (BPRF) can drastically increase productivity by transforming A4 sheets into A5 books (2 up productions). In order to complete this automated solution, a CMT-130 or a CMT-330C In-Line configuration can provide the final three-sided trimming.

In brief, the BB3202 integrates with your current and future workflow.

Available in EVA/hot melt and PUR glue

Depending on the job you need to perform, C.P. Bourg enables you to have the machine that responds to your needs.

The PUR adhesive system is the most durable and flexible book binding glue available. It is ideal to produce softcover books, and on-demand full-color print materials such as photo books.

The EVA/hot melt adhesive is faster and cheaper than PUR but is less durable and less flexible. This is why the EVA gluing system is ideal to produce on-demand handouts, medical prescription books (cover with innerflaps and tear-off sheets) and black/white books for a small price.

If you decide to purchase the BB3202 PUR-C, please note that this machine can be used with EVA/hot melt when needed.
