The Bourg Document Finisher (BDF-e) is a high-end, compact and fully automated booklet maker.

Bourg BDF-e

The BDF-e is connectable with a BSF and seamlessly integrates the benefits of Off-Line and In-Line finishing, ideal for customers hesitating between Off-Line and In-Line finishing (see the description of the BSF).

Since the BDF-e can be directly connected to multiple print engines such as Kodak, Océ/Canon and Xerox,, it is the perfect choice for in-plants or commercial print shops that need to produce booklets in production runs from one to thousands.

Produce automatically A5 to A4 booklet size and even more…

Final dimensions of booklets produced by the BDF-e range from 76 x 120 mm (2.99 X 4.72 in) up to 260 mm x 356 mm (10.23 x 14.01 in) to a maximum speed of 4200 sets/hour.

The BDF-e is able to stitch fold trim up to 22 sheets, stitches up to 55 sheets, and folds up to 22 sheets (88 pages) booklets without scuffing or marking.

Create the solution that responds to your needs

The BDF-e is compatible with several C.P. Bourg machines.

With the Bourg Sheet Feeder (BSF), for example, the BDF-e can be connected directly in In-Line and Near-Line mode to multiple print engines such as Xeror and Océ/Canon and Kodak and can quickly produce booklets.

Connected to the Bourg Bleed Crease Module (BCM-e), the BCM-e will perform the highest quality knife creasing, top and bottom bleeding. Adding the Square Edge Module (SQE) to the configuration will transform traditional stitch-fold-trim booklets into square edged booklets. Booklets produced are flat and easy to stack.
