Standard to Launch Integrated Continuous-feed Finishing Solutions
The new Standard Hunkeler FM6 Plow Fold / Web Merge Module will also premier at Print 09, combining plow-folding and slit-merging in one compact module, with integrated perforating wheels. The web is folded or merged and then cut into sheets by the CS6-II, featuring double-cut—or chip-out—for full-bleed documents. The FM6 in-line with the new Standard Horizon AFC-566DIF signature folder allows for a virtually endless combination of folds for direct mail or other applications in one pass.
“The marriage 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, both black-and-white and color” said David Reny, Executive Vice President, Standard Finishing Systems. “Customers have been asking for highly-reliable in-line finishing to help them eliminate manual touch-points and off-line steps. These new developments will help commercial printers, direct mailers, financial printers, publishers, banks, utilities and service bureaus achieve production cost models that have been out of reach with existing technology.”
Standard will showcase 10,600 square-feet of in-line and off-line feeding and finishing solutions under the theme “Think Intelligent Automation” in booth 2637 at Print 09. Over fifty live applications will be running to demonstrate the power of post-press automation. Standard Horizon and Standard Hunkeler solutions will also be shown throughout the halls at Print 09 in cooperation with nearly a dozen printer vendor, mailroom, verification and other graphic arts partners.
