Standard Hunkeler to Unveil New Paper Handling Solutions at drupa

Drupa 2012 is set to run May 3-16, 2012, in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Several World Premieres at drupa
Hunkeler will introduce several products in their own booth at drupa—including the SD7 Starwheel Stacker with glue dots, which will be part of a live demonstration of a complete bookbinding workflow that begins with pre-printed digital rolls up to 30˝ wide. The Standard Hunkeler PF7 Double Plow-fold Module applies one or two folds in the web direction as needed before the CS6 cutter converts the multiple-up imposition into book blocks, which are then glued and stacked as four-, six- or eight-page signatures on the new SD7 Starwheel Stacker.

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.
