Standard to Launch Several Solutions at GRAPH EXPO
The new Standard Horizon CRF-362 Creaser/Folder has been designed to handle the unique requirements of creasing and folding of digital color output across a wide range of light and heavy weight stocks, coated or uncoated. The impact scoring eliminates or minimizes cracking of the stock and printed image. The CRF-362 comes configured with seven selectable fold patterns and six selectable cover creasing patterns for perfect binding. Jobs can be saved to job memory, and up to 10 creases can be placed on each sheet. Paper weights up to 400 gsm can be creased without folding (350 gsm with folding), and it can handle sheets up to 14.33x34".
The new Horizon SmartStacker will premiere as a technology demonstration, converting a B2-size/20x29" sheet into as many as 28 individual cut sheets, with intelligent accumulation and stacking, and end-to-end JDF control. The sheets can also be conveyed for inline finishing such as saddlestitching, folding, or perfect binding. The system edge trims and gutter cuts for up to seven sheets in one direction and four in the other for full bleed trimming. The new SmartStacker streamlines production by minimizing material handling with fewer touchpoints for lower labor costs. JDF control eliminates costly set-up errors, and finished documents are turned around faster with improved integrity. Most important, it lets you produce more jobs per shift with greater efficiency, changing the equation from cost/printed page to cost/finished document. Designed to run inline with the HP Indigo 10000 B2 Digital Press, the system can also be operated offline.
The new Standard Hunkeler WI6 Web Inspection System will be shown as part of a roll-to-fold solution that features the Hunkeler DP6 Dynamic Perforator, CS6-II Cutter with chip-out, and the Horizon AF-566F Folder. Individually driven hydraulic cylinders make the DP6 capable of producing unique and dynamic file hole punching and perforating patterns that can vary from sheet to sheet. The WI6 will be capturing high resolution images of the full web width for inline verification, quality inspection and integrity analysis of the printed roll for mass mailing, print on demand, financial and other variable data applications. Print quality and integrity problems are immediately detected so incorrect documents can be automatically diverted or flagged in the database, and instantly reprinted to guarantee error-free output, minimal waste, and reduced downtime. The system can perform a variety of quality checks, including detecting ink spills, jet-outs or print voids, verification of barcodes or postal codes, and image quality inspection. Information from several print lines utilizing the WI6 can be communicated to the printer’s ADF system to monitor production and prevent duplications.
