Product Overview


Bourg Booklet Maker (BM-e)

In-Line / Off-Line / Near-Line / Dual-Mode

The Bourg Booklet Maker (BM-e) is C.P. Bourg’s high-end award winning booklet maker that utilizes the latest technology with unparalleled quality and speed to produce on-demand booklets. The paper flow follows a stitch–fold–trim process with guaranteed set integrity, a maximum of 120 pages per booklet (30 sheets) and a maximum speed of 5,000 booklets/hour – the best of its category.

Large sheet sizes of 370 x 600 mm (14.56 x 23.62 in) can be processed through the BM-e with ease and create, for example, oversized B3 calendars formats and A4 (US letter) landscape booklets.To accommodate offset production needs, the BST-e collator can also be connected to the BM-e.

Within the BM-e, the paper-path can follow either a right to left process – and work In-Line with the HP Indigo 5500, 5600 and 7000 Series Digital presses – or a left to right process – and work In-Line with Xerox printers- offering a great flexibility!

Furthermore, the color touchscreen interface (GUI) and the automated tool-less set-up capability makes the booklet maker very easy to use.

The BM-e responds to the needs of commercial printers and in-plant printing institutions that  have shorter turnaround time, smaller job runs and tightening budgets.
