Experience with Konica Minolta PB 503 perfect binding unit?


Active member
Does anyone have experience with the PB 503 perfect binding unit available on the Konica Minolta AccurioPress and BizHub? It seems that it is a bit finicky when it comes to the size of a pre-printed covers and the main pages of the document. We were able to bind a document but we can't seem to duplicate the process. Anyone familiar with this unit?

The cover tray of the PB-503 maxes out at 18.5" length. The PB-503 itself trims off the excess from the face edge of the rear cover. Given that, there's no reason not to just use 18.5" long stock all the time.

We have a PB-503 and use it daily. It's an awesome unit. We cut the covers to 11x18 and they work just fine. What exactly is the issue you're experiencing?


We have one and our service guy visits often. Recently had the glue tank break and it took 9 months for service idiots to figure out how to fix it. Luckily I had a spare PB binder and borrowed the glue tank from it.
