Standard to Launch Several Solutions at GRAPH EXPO
Saddlestitching Flexibility: Solutions for Digital Roll, Cut-sheet, and Offset
The Standard Horizon StitchLiner 6000 Digital saddlestitcher will be shown producing variable sheet-count booklets from a digitally pre-printed roll on the Standard booth. Standard Hunkeler unwinding and rotary cutting technology has been tightly integrated with the Horizon saddlestitching platform, and an optional high-speed sheet feeder can be added so customers have the flexibility to run from a roll or cut-sheets. The StitchLiner 6000 Digital can also be placed inline with a roll-fed printer, so you can go from white paper to full-color, variable booklets that are ready-to-ship in one continuous process with no manual touchpoints.
“The combination of legendary Horizon and Hunkeler engineering, from one trusted supplier, brings new levels of integration and performance to every high-speed continuous-feed production print platform,” said David Reny, executive vice president, Standard Finishing Systems. “Customers are looking for highly-reliable inline feeding and finishing solutions to help improve efficiencies and value, and the StitchLiner 6000 Digital is designed to meet those goals.”
The Standard Horizon StitchLiner 5500 will be producing high-quality saddlestitched documents up to 200 pages. The system eliminates signature folding by combining flat sheet gathering, scoring, folding, stitching, and three-knife trimming in one integrated line. The StitchLiner—well established as the market leader in four-page signature saddlestitching—will also be configured with a HOF high-speed sheet feeder for digitally pre-collated output, so the same system can pull double-duty serving both offset and digital production workflows.
Vision Based Inspection Systems
The “VIVA” suite of vision-based inspection systems—custom-designed for document integrity, quality control and verification in production environments—will be shown on several systems at GRAPH EXPO. VIVA cameras for sheet-level and set-level integrity checking will be mounted on a Standard Horizon StitchLiner 6000 Digital inline saddlestitching system, a Standard Horizon HOF-30 high-speed sheet feeder paired with the StitchLiner 5500 Saddlestitcher, and the Standard KAS 465HS Mail Inserter. The VIVA line can be deployed across a broad range of Standard solutions to ensure quality control, integrity, tracking and reporting of personalized documents.
