Product Overview


Bourg Suction Tower (BST-e)

Off-Line

The Bourg BST-e vertical suction tower collator, is the printing industry’s first large-format tower collator able to support “finishing on demand” booklet making from both offset, digital and hybrid workflows. It accepts printed material in sheet sizes up to 600 x 370 mm (23.62 x 14.56 in), and a wide range of paper types and weights from 40 up to 350 gsm. The BST-e has the highest tower capacity (70 mm/2.75 in), therefore allowing more papers to be loaded.

The Bourg BST-e relies on a C.P. Bourg-innovated suction paper transport system: the suction belt & air sheet separation technology. It enables feeding performances and reliability to increase up to 11,000 sets/hour.

Aside from the collator functions, the BST-e can be used as a sheet feeder for sequential feeding, or for programmed picking.
