Rollem and HP Demonstrate In-line UV Coating
CHICAGO—November 10, 2008—Rollem International and Hewlett-Packard demonstrated automation in digital print finishing with the premier showing of the new HP UV coater running in-line with the Rollem Jetstream. The new Indigo 7000 printed colorful 13x19” press sheets containing 8 recipe cards which were coated and fed directly into the Jetstream for in-line cutting, edge trimming and two-directional slitting, followed by a new Auto-Collation unit gathering the cards into finished sets. Only Jetstream can perform these multiple processes and operate in-line with digital coaters and presses to offer complete finishing automation on all types of cards, photo cards, direct mailers and more.
Automation in direct mail finishing was also demonstrated on the TR system in-line with plough folding, gluing, business card tip on, vision verification and glue closure. This Complete Mail Finishing system is fully automated eliminating the need for multiple units, product movement and extra manpower. One operator is able to streamline finishing with the ability to “maintain the zip code integrity of the mail” from Feeding to Finishing to Mail Trays.
“We witnessed such enthusiasm from visitors when they realized this system offers the ability to start with a multiple-up press sheet and deliver direct mailers folded and glued, ready for mail bins. Never before have we witnessed such an interest in equipment capable of doing multiple functions. By processing sheets as a single flow waste is eliminated, productivity is increased and labor is significantly reduced”, states Larry Corwin, President of Rollem International.
Rollem also demonstrated NEW paper drilling technology with the PB-15 system featuring automatic feeding, jogging, drilling and delivery of products including loose-leaf, collated products with tabs, perfect bounds books, and stitched products and spiral & wire-o all at speeds up to 1,500 piles per hour – twice the speed of standard drilling!
