Standard Hunkeler to Unveil New Paper Handling Solutions at drupaMarch 28, 2012
From there, the glued book blocks are transferred to a near-line perfect binder for book finishing. The signature book block solution is capable of running at speeds up to 653 feet per minute, and 450 output cycles per hour (multiple books per cycle), for off-line or in-line production.
In another world premier the DP6-A Dynamic Perforator will be part of a roll-to-fanfold solution for transactional and transpromotional applications, which also includes the FS6 Fanfolder and the PP6 Punch and Perforator – which can add static tractor holes, fanfold perforations, and file holes. The DP6-A is capable of unique and dynamic file hole punching and perforating patterns from sheet to sheet due to its individually driven hydraulic cylinders.
In a technology demonstration, the new HL6 laser engraving system for security punching and perforating will be shown for the first time as part of a solution that is ideal for check, transpromotional, and direct mail applications. The unique HL6 is capable of fully dynamic 2-up laser engraving with dual laser heads for complex punching or perforating patterns at speeds up to 492 feet per minute. The WI6 Web Inspection System will also be in-line with this solution, capturing high resolution images of the full web width for in-line verification and integrity analysis.
The PC7 Primer/Coater and LS7 Large Format Stacker will also debut as part of a line that also includes the 30˝” Wide CS7 Cutter. This solution will be coating, cutting and stacking pre-printed posters. The PC7 fulfills two functions: primer application (pre-coating) on paper prior to the printing process or finishing (post-coating) on printed paper webs.
At drupa, the PC7 will be coating posters for scuff resistance. The PC7 enables the use of ordinary offset papers on inkjet printing systems—translating into high paper and storage cost savings. Cut sheets up to 43x30˝ can be stacked up to 31˝” high in the LS7 large format stacker.
