PUR Glue Makes All The Difference!

Influence Print has installed a new BQ-160PUR Perfect Binding Machine from Horizon.  The new binding machine featuring PUR glue enhances Influence Print complete in-house bindery department.  According to Ron Sizemore, one of the partners at Influence Print, “we’re seeing larger and larger perfect bound lookbook print runs and the Horizon binder will allow us to turnaround large digital printing projects faster while at the same time provide our customers with a higher quality product. At the same time this new machine will cut our labor costs by not have to add a stitch to larger book blocks”  The PUR option on the Horizon BQ 280 provides unparalleled binding strength between the cover and the book block.  PUR Adhesive (Polyurethane Reactive) is the most durable and flexible book binding glue available. The new machine is capable of binding books up to 15’ long and up to 2 inches thick.  Setup can be completed in less than one minute including glue setup, nipping width, nipping height and scoring rollers. The machine has a maximum cycle speed of 500 booklets per hour.
