One-to-One Book Production
The Standard Horizon BQ-470V “Variable” four-clamp Perfect Binder can quickly changeover from clamp-to-clamp for true on-demand production of variable thickness books. The BQ-470V binder has “intelligent automation,” a feature that is built into all Horizon post-press products and is best illustrated by the intuitive, icon-based color touchscreen.

Designed for the short-run POD and commercial print book markets, the BQ-470V four-clamp binder is controlled via the 10.4” intelligent color touchscreen. A digital caliper also measures book thickness and automatically transfers the settings to the binder for quick, automated changeover and truly efficient single-edition book production. With single-person operation, the BQ-470V can produce up to 1,350 books per hour, bind books up to 2.5” thick, and meet varying customer application requirements with interchangeable glue tanks that support both hot-melt EVA and PUR adhesives.
