MBM Print upsizes with IFS and Horizon

MBM Print SCS has purchased a Horizon BQ270V single clamp perfect binder from Intelligent Finishing Systems (IFS) as part of an ongoing strategy to grow its business.

The East Kilbride operation recently won a new contract for short run fast turnaround manuals and will be putting the Horizon machine to work on the project.

The binder includes an automated, sensor-activated digital calliper system that consistently measures book block thickness and automatically transfers this data to the binder for automated set-up for books of different thicknesses. It also has a large 10.4” colour touch-screen, job programming, and a compact configuration.

Bryan Munro, operations director for MBM, says the new piece of kit will enable the firm to provide a “quicker response to customer demand” as well as “reduce pressure” on its larger trend binding line to produce low volume work.

IFS understood our requirements and presented us with a viable and cost-effective solution that would give us what we require with little or no hassle

Munro adds: “Horizon has a long-standing reputation for high quality solutions that effectively manage low volume digital production. I liked the Horizon’s speed of make-ready and low wastage.

“I was also impressed by the system’s video and the IFS team’s commitment to ensuring the purchase and installation would be beneficial and present MBM with the best solution.IFS understood our requirements and presented us with a viable and cost-effective solution that would give us what we require with little or no hassle.”
