Standard Horizon to Feature Intelligent Automation
- CCD-AFC / CCD-AF – CCD camera options for AFC folders enable sheet-by-sheet verification reading from the top, bottom, or both to insure 100% integrity of folded signatures inside and out. This allows any double-pulls from the press that might slip into the bindery to be caught during folding, and eliminates the possibility that sheets printed one-side-only and folded image-side-out end up as blank book pages. This level of quality check assures ISO 9001 compliance.
- Standard OMG Stacker Deliveries with Pressing Units – two new models of high-performance presser/stackers will be shown behind Horizon AFC folders for improved productivity. These deliveries stack a very wide range of paper stocks with extra-tight fold quality and allow less frequent unloading to minimize operator fatigue.
An extensive range of other Standard Horizon fast make-ready paper folders and accessories will also be shown.
Standard Hunkeler and Leading Partners Show New Gen6 Solutions
The new Standard Hunkeler Gen6 series unwinders, rewinders, cutters, double-cutters, stackers and fanfolders will take center stage at Graph Expo. The proven Gen6 series -- designed to work with high-speed digital printers at up to 720 feet/minute, with superior paper handling performance on a wide range of paper weights, and cross-web chip-outs for full-color bleeds -- will be shown with five industry-leading printer vendors. Océ (booth #2400) and Xerox (booth #1219) will demonstrate roll-to-cut/stack solutions, while InfoPrint Solutions (booth #2274), Kodak (booth #3646), and Screen (booth #3808) will be running roll-to-roll configurations.
On the Standard booth, the new Hunkeler CS6-II Rotary Cutter with Chip-Out will be shown as part of a combination solution producing full-bleed trimmed color self mailers and offset stacked book blocks. The Standard Hunkeler UW6 unwinder and high performance CS6-II cutter will be double-cutting sheets from a pre-printed roll. The sheets will then be folded into direct mailers on the in-line Standard Horizon AFC-566H automated signature folder, or offset stacked as book blocks with full set separation for near-line perfect binding on the Standard Horizon BQ-470.
