Innovationdays will take place at the Lucerne trade fair complex on the shores of Lake Lucerne.
Hunkeler has organized this 8th biannual showcase in partnership with the leading digital printing, inserting and finishing companies. Over 60 companies are represented including Canon, HP, InfoPrint Solutions Company, Kodak, Nipson, Screen, Océ, Xeikon, Xerox and Horizon. The event promises significant technology premiers, with a broad range of live applications that span the full spectrum of digital printing and paper handling. Innovationdays guests are invited to pre-register and learn more at http://www.sdmc.com/about/hope-see-you-at-innovationdays-2009,52.html.
Under the banner “Huncolor-ready,” Hunkeler will also showcase their expertise and commitment to serve the fast-growing continuous-feed ink-jet and digital color markets with solutions specifically designed for full-bleed trimming and extra-sensitive paper handling, to avoid any propensity for marking. As continuous-feed digital color imaging ramps-up to even higher speeds, “Huncolor-ready” paper handling will deliver the transpromotional, direct mail and publishing end-products customers want.
Highlights include the new Gen6 rotary cutter with variable chip-out, a non-stop precision stacker for continuous productivity, and unmatched substrate flexibility from 40 gsm light-weight stock up to 300 gsm. The new Standard Hunkeler plow fold module will also be shown, along with the full range of new Gen6 unwinders, cutters, stackers, and rewinders. The Gen6 series sets new benchmarks in productivity, with easy and automated set-up and changeover. All Standard Hunkeler equipment is designed to handle the speeds of the world’s fastest digital printing systems – up to 500 feet per minute and beyond.
A Standard Horizon AFC production folder will also be shown in-line with the Standard Hunkeler CS6 rotary cutter. Tight technical integration between these modules yield a range of end-user benefits that include ultra-fast set-up and changeover, application flexibility, and variable speed matching for smooth operation. This solution has particular relevance in direct mail -- allowing in-line gluing and folding of one-piece mailers -- and digital book production for in-line signature folding.
According to Johan Laurent, Standard Hunkeler Business Manager, “As Hunkeler’s North American partner, Standard believes innovationdays is a great venue for industry professionals to learn, share, and find answers to the paper processing challenges facing their businesses. This may be the most complete range of live digital print solutions ever assembled under one roof, with nearly every leading company represented.”
