  • Variable productionThe BQ-500 is the most productive binder for book-of-one production in its class. In a variable range of +/-5mm, the BQ-500 can reach production speeds of up to 800 books per hour, almost double the productivity of other binders in this range.
  • Case binding and add-ons Enhancements like the LBF-500 Book Block Feeder and case binding accessories like the GF-500 Gauze Feeder and ESF-1000 End Sheet Feeder allow you to tailor the BQ-500 to fit your unique production needs.

  • Clean spine preparation Improved milling waste removal, a newly designed air flow, and an improved glue application system help ensure high-quality production.
  • EVA and PURThe BQ-500 features interchangeable EVA and PUR glue tanks with a new and improved tank removal process for cleaner and easier tank changeover.
  • Gentle deliveryTo prevent damage to more delicate books, the BQ-500 has reduced the book drop from 150mm to only 5mm. Books are then gently lowered to the delivery belt.
