Bourg Binder BB3002 PUR-C Perfect Binder

C.P. Bourg is the first manufacturer worldwide to use the PUReONETM compact adhesive system with applicator from Nordson. This solution has been successfully integrated into the Bourg Binder BB3002 PUR-C and creates a cost-effective and high-performing perfect binder.
The combination of the C.P. Bourg and the Nordson advanced technology offers many advantages: a consistent and reliable performance with precise dispensing of the PUReONETM glue, clean cut-off and the highest quality creasing; an increased productivity by reducing clean-up and shortening start-up/shutdown times; deliver production flexibility by having a binder automatically adjusted to the thickness of each job up to 60 mm (2.36 in); an easy to use color touchscreen interface (GUI) which controls all functionalities, and lower production costs by reducing waste and adhesive usage.
The BB3002 PUR-C, with its 2 to 4 kg adhesive melter, is ideal to produce on-demand full-color print books such as perfect bound photo books. The BB3002 PUR-C also allows quick production of handouts by offering the possibility to change to EVA / hot melt gluing system.

Why use PUR glue?
Four key reasons to use the PUR gluing system:
- Books lay flat;
Books last longer thanks to a better glue adherence (sheet pull test resistance 12 N/cm (+ 30 to 50 % typically and a higher resistance to low and high temperature environments (e.g., glue does not wear off while reading a book on the beach or on the terrace of a ski station);
Better application on difficult media (e.g., coated papers, Silicone Fuser Oil on digitally printed sheets or covers with UV coating);
Less glue and energy used in the process (more ecological).
- Non-stop production and easy maintenance.
Contrary to our competitors' machines, the BB3002 PUR-C includes a Nordson applicator which makes the gluing system fully closed. The BB3002 PUR-C does not need to be stopped either during adhesive refill nor every two hours to be cleaned. There is just one purge cup to be emptied every time you start the machine. This results in operation and adhesive savings.
Furthermore, as the system is fully closed, there is no health hazard for the operator to breathe adhesive emissions and no need to use low-emission PUR glue that does not provide constant quality. With our PUR-C adhesive system, you always have the exact quantity of glue you need for each book - no more, no less.
A binder designed to produce all your customers' standard book sizes and even more...
The BB3002 PUR-C enables you to produce up to 285 books/hour (up to 650 cycles/hour) from 100 x 90 mm (3.93 x 3.54 in) to 385 x 380 mm (15.15 x 14.96 in). No current competitive binder to C.P. Bourg enables you to do better!
- 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.
It is ideal to produce softcover books and on-demand full-color print materials such as photo books.
- Optimize the use of your manpower.
Every time the operator loads a different book thickness in the BB3002 PUR-C, the specifications are measured automatically and no manual input is required. You save time and increase 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. Bourg's modular approach enables your machines to grow at the same time than your business. You can start with a BB3002 PUR-C perfect binder and later on 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 maximum 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 tasks on other machines.
The BBC enables you to connect the BB3002 PUR-C 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. There is increased productivity as 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 PUR-C integrates with your current and future workflow.

Maximum speed: 650 cycles/hour - 250-285 books/hour (operator dependent).
