Standard Horizon to Show How Offset and Digital Converge
Digital Finishing Solutions Presentations
Two highly versatile digital finishing systems will be featured in the Digital Finishing Theater. The Horizon StitchLiner 6000 Digital will produce saddlestitched books from a pre-printed roll and cut sheets. A “Smart Book” solution will show a pre-printed roll converted to book blocks for perfect binding, featuring the new HT-1000V Variable Three-knife Trimmer, book block and cover matching, and a digitally managed workflow including Screen’s EQUIOS and the Horizon pXnet system.
The presentations include Hunkeler unwinders and cutters, and printed products from partners Komori, Océ, and Screen. These presentations will be shown four times a day.
Partnerships Take Center Stage
A broad range of Horizon equipment will be shown in 6 different partner booths throughout the halls at drupa. The Horizon StitchLiner 6000 digital roll-to-saddlestitch solution will be demonstrated in the Komori, Océ, and Xerox booths, and the ColorWorks 8000 in-line Bookletmaker will be shown by Xerox. The new BQ-270V variable perfect binder will be featured in the Océ and Tokyo Kikai booths, and the BQ-470 4-clamp perfect binder will be shown in the HP booth with the HT-30C three-side trimmer.
In the Screen booth, a Standard Hunkeler UW6 will unwind a preprinted paper roll that will then be sheeted in the CS6 rotary cutter and signature folded in the Horizon AF-566F digital folder. Individual signatures are then accumulated and pressed into book blocks in the intelligent PSX-56 stacker, before being delivered to a Horizon perfect binder for book production.
The new Horizon SmartStacker will premier in the HP booth as a technology demonstration, paired with the new HP Indigo 10000 B2 size press. The in-line or off-line SmartStacker converts a B2 size/20×29˝ sheet into up to 28 individual cut sheets, with intelligent accumulation and stacking, and end-to-end JDF control. The sheets can also be conveyed for in-line finishing, for example saddlestitching or perfect binding.
