Bourg Binder BB3002 EVA / Hot melt Perfect Binder

The Bourg Binder BB3002 EVA is designed to create state of the art perfect bound books while being user-friendly - thanks to the color touchscreen interface (GUI) . This unique perfect binder enables you to produce from the largest to the smallest range of book sizes ranging from small square books to large custom sizes (see media sheet sizes).
This binder is ideal for on-demand customized applications, producing single books from 2 to 600 sheets (with 90 gsm), in record time. The BB3002 EVA adapts all features automatically to the thickness of each job. Therefore, no manual set-up is required. This reduces loss of productivity and allows a peak speed of 650 cycles per hour, the best of its category!
The BB3002 EVA is the ideal binder to produce high quality materials such as on-demand student handouts, medical prescription books (cover with innerflaps/winged books and tear-off sheets), and a wide variety of books for the quickest return on investment. A key advantage of the EVA hot melt gluing system is that books can be manipulated very quickly.

Why use EVA/hot melt glue?
Three key reasons to use the EVA/hot melt gluing system:
A faster production of books;
Books can be manipulated immediately;
More economical than PUR glue, the glue can be remelted and there is no expiration date on the glue.
A binder designed to produce all your customers' standard book sizes and even more...
While you try to respond to all your customer needs, reduce costs and increase productivity, the BB3002 EVA enables you to produce up to 350 books/hour (up to 650 cycles/hour) from 100 x 90mm (3.93 x 3.54 in) to 385 x 380mm (15.15 x 14.96 in). No other binder on the market matches the features set of the BB3002.
Up to 13 positive/negative cover knife creases
Compared to wheel scoring, knife creasing is, by far, the best solution.It offers a superior and cleaner quality result which avoids the printed surface to be damaged and the covers to be cracked. This creasing system is easier to adjust and offers more flexibility as you can perform variable creasing and make books from 2 to 600 sheets.
This is ideal to produce books with inner flaps (winged books) such as medical prescription books.
Optimize the use of your manpower.
Every time the operator loads a different book thickness in the BB3002 EVA, the specifications are measured automatically and no manual input is required. You save time and increase your productivity.
All functions including the clamping system, the accuracy adjustment in operation, the barcode scanning, etc. are fully automated.
Furthermore, the color touchscreen interface (GUI) makes the perfect binder very easy to use.
Our modular approach enables your machines to grow at the same time than your business
You can start with a BB3002 EVA perfect binder and later upgrade it by connecting to a Bourg Book Loader (BBL) or a Bourg Book Complier (BBC) with a Bourg Sheet Feeder (BSF) and a trimmer CMT-130 or CMT-330C working In-Line, Near-Line and Off-Line to increase efficiency.
The key benefit of the BBL is efficiency. The BBL enables your operator to load up to 120 book blocks in less than six minutes. The machine can then work automatically at constant speed of the perfect binder for 8 to 25 minutes. The operator can use this time saved to start packing books that have just been trimmed on the CMT-130 or CMT-330C and deliver the customer faster or to perform other urgent tasks on other machines.
The BBC enables you to connect the BB3002 EVA directly to a printer. The binder will therefore be fed sheet by sheet. Once the book block is completed, the book will be glued immediately. No intervention of an operator is needed to glue books and there is no need to wait until all book blocks of the job queue are prepared before glueing them.
Finally, your machine can also be equipped with the barcode solution that enables job tracking to maximize productivity and integrity. This is especially useful in "book runs of one" where matching cover-to-content is critical.
In brief, the BB3002 EVA integrates with your current and future workflow.
