Hohner Has Successful 2022 Year of Events
Hohner, manufacturer of saddle stitchers and stitching machines and global market leader in stitching heads, has been very successful with events this fall. From PRINTING United Expo (Las Vegas) to the Alliance Days (headquarters in Germany), to IGAS 2022 in Japan and last but not least the Open House in their USA showroom in Elgin, Illinois, the adaptive and versatile hybrid in saddle stitching has attracted visitors and provoked deep interest.
Visitors were finally able to see live the versatility of Hohner's HHS FUTURA. Two machine configurations at the same time at the Alliance Days illustrated the many possibilities for feeding both sheets and rolls for commercial and digital finishing. Visually impressed by the miniature components produced in 3D printing, customers had the opportunity to put together their own machine configuration. Whether collating via towers, cross-fold with the K70 from MBO or via the classic saddle stitcher with four feeder types, roll fed with the MBO unwinder UW23 with data matrix code for personalized content, a SVC525C sheeter and the DFT560/4 folding unit (all three MBO), as well as creasing unit or digitally processing via the MBO T50 buckle plate folder from the flat pile feeder. By far the most compact DIGI finisher configuration, however, is the ultimate market launch: the configuration with Hohner's horizontal compact digital feeder (KDAL) allows finishing of variable data print and offers on top, thanks to its loading from above and a taking from below, the enormous advantage of production without interruptions for filling. Individuality of print products is easier than ever with the FUTURA concept and makes print finishing flexible and adaptive to new trends in the long term.
“Hohner is showing the US market that we are always one step ahead in technology advancements,” states Michelle Nelis, Vice President, Hohner Stitching Products. “We have the unique distinction of being the only saddle stitcher manufacturer to have a machine model that allows more than five different feeding modes that can grow with your company for years down the road. We want our customers to be able to adapt their company growth to their bindery and we don’t want them to start fresh every time they have an advancement. Meeting their needs where they are at is our priority.”
