See The Full Range of Finishing Expertise at Standard Finishing
Standing Finishing (Booth N1943) is proud to be exhibiting at this year’s PRINTING United Expo. In its 4,000 sqft booth, one of the largest displays of feeding and finishing at the show, the company will display its newest and most popular print finishing and paper handling solutions. These solutions will be fully set up for live demonstrations throughout the event for visitors to see its range of diecutting, perfect binding and trimming, slitting and creasing, folding, saddlestitching, and roll-fed print solutions in action.
At the Expo, Standard is featuring Horizon’s latest releases: the GF-500 Gauze Feeder, the ESF-1000 End Sheet Feeder, the RD-N4055 Die Cutting System, and the StitchLiner Mark V Saddlestitcher.
When combined with the GF-500 and ESF-1000, the BQ-500 Perfect Binder can produce book blocks for short-run case bound books. Gauze width and length are set up according to book block information from the binder for consistent quality and minimal waste. Switching between gauze application and soft-cover book production is easily performed from the binder’s touchscreen, with no need to detach the GF-500 from the BQ-500. The ESF-1000 adds folded end sheets to the book block, and it can accept loose sheet, folded signature, glued book blocks, or sewn book blocks. The ESF-1000 can be configured in-line or offline.
The RD-N4055 Die Cutting System from Horizon combines a feeder, a single- or dual-magnetic cylinder diecutter, and an optional separator and card stacker into an efficient, versatile system. It can diecut, kisscut, emboss/deboss, crease/score, perforate, slit, hole punch, and round corner in a single pass or in multiple combinations. When combined with the SPC-N4055 Separator and CSD-40RD Card Stacker, the RD-N4055 also eliminates the need for manual separating and counting. At speeds of up to 6,000 sph, the RD-N4055 can easily handle short, on-demand runs as well as high-volume applications.
The StitchLiner Mark V Saddlestitcher produces booklets at speeds of up to 6,000 booklets/hr. Sheets are individually scored and tightly folded for consistent quality, even with high page counts or variable page-count applications. The Mark V also supports an optional dual-bin cover feeder. This cover feeder can merge covers into the print stream without affecting production speed. It can handle sheet sizes up to 20x14" and produce a wide range of booklet sizes including A4 Landscape.
PRINTING United Expo will also mark the North American debut of Hunkeler’s DocuTrim. The DocuTrim is a modular, multifunctional sheet processing system that can trim, cut, perforate, and stack sheets up to 20.47x20.47". Vertical and horizontal perforations are possible on the DocuTrim, and up to six vertical and six horizontal perforating tools can be used to produce a wide variety of perf patterns. The DocuTrim can be run in-line with cut-sheet printers or offline, and it can run at speeds of up to 11,500 sph.
Visitors will also see the Hunkeler Roll-to-Cut/Stack solution, which will be run in-line with the Horizon iCE StitchLiner Mark V Saddlestitcher to create a combination Roll-to-Stack/Roll-to-Booklet solution. This solution will feature the UW8 Unwinder, which can run at up to 830 fpm and handle rolls up to 1,980 lbs. The Hunkeler Roll-to-Stack solution will be producing book blocks that will be perfect bound on the Horizon BQ-500 Perfect Binder and trimmed on the Horizon HT-300 Three-side Trimmer.
