Standard to Demo Automated Feeding, Finishing Workflow Solutions at PRINT 13
Digital Print Partnerships for Integrated Solutions
Standard will once again partner with key digital print manufacturers to bring highly integrated feeding and finishing solutions to the show floor. In the Xerox booth, the Xerox CiPress 5000 Production Inkjet System will be equipped with a Standard Hunkeler Roll-to-Stack Solution, delivering up to 1,650 straight and fully-separated book blocks per hour.
In a collaboration between Xerox, Ultimate Technographics and Horizon, new Xerox FreeFlow software will now enable simple, fully automated finishing set-up on Horizon perfect binders and three-knife trimmers. A job ticket will be produced within the print stream and travel with the job to the finisher. Then, the operator will simply scan the ticket and all finishing set-up data will be automatically transferred to the finisher for fast, easy, and error-free job changeovers. Live demonstrations of this capability will be conducted throughout the show in Standard’s booth on the Horizon BQ-270V Perfect Binder and HT-30 Three-side Trimmer.
In another technology collaboration, HP, Ultimate Technographics and Horizon have teamed up to enable the new Direct2Finish capability on a fleet of Horizon finishers, including perfect binders, three-knife trimmers, saddlestitchers and folders. Direct2Finish software allows simple yet fully automated finishing set-ups for HP and Horizon customers and streamlines the process for job changeovers. Live demonstrations of this capability will be conducted throughout the show in Standard’s booth on the Horizon BQ-280PUR Perfect Binder and HT-30 Three-side Trimmer.
Standard will also be running a broad range of demonstration materials developed in cooperation with and printed by strategic digital print partners, including Canon, HP, Ricoh, Screen, and Xerox. Standard Hunkeler finishing solutions will be processing rolls pre-printed on the Canon ColorStream 3900 inkjet press, HP T300 inkjet press, InfoPrint 5000 GP inkjet press, and Screen TruePress Jet 520 inkjet press to serve a variety of continuous-feed applications throughout the Standard booth. Additionally, output from the Canon imagePRESS C7010VPS, HP Indigo B2 10000 digital press, and Xerox’s new Impika Compact Ink Jet press will be used to demonstrate a wide range of cut-sheet finishing applications.
