In its simplest configuration, the BM5000 comes as two basic units. The BM5035 bookletmaker and the FM5000, this unit staples and folds 12” x 12” books or 8.5” x 11” landscape books, as well as the standard formats you use. The FM5000 finishing module trims the front edge and put the square spine onto the book. Booklets can be up to 140 pages of 20lb bond.
If you add the convenience feeder – neatly located under the main bookletmaking unit, this will load up to 800 sheets of 20lb bond for shorter runs of books – but will still take a full length 24”, or you could use it to automatically pull covers onto a hand fed set. The vacuum dual bin VFX feeder – one of the most intelligent feeders on the market, holds up to 5400 sheets for long uninterrupted runs of books.
We also have various options for bleed trimming, the CST module which will trim the edges of the sheets and crease your covers on the fly. The BM5000 can also be upgraded to a 50 sheet – 200 page class leading capacity, all our bookletmaking systems can be equipped to deliver our signature SquareFold finish, making it much easier to stack and pack your finished books.
