“The Hunkeler pre/post for continuous feed and the Horizon finishing equipment [saddle stitching and perfect binding] transfers over to any type of finished publication that is stitched or perfect bound,” explains Don Dubuque, marketing director at Standard Finishing Systems, whether printed with inkjet or offset inks. “For example, the Hunkeler UW6 Unwinder and CS6 Cutter can be put inline with the Horizon StitchLiner 6000 SaddleStitcher, either inline with a continuous feed print engine or off-line.”
Houston-based mega print firm Consolidated Graphics (CGX) is heavily vested in digital printing, including inkjet web technology. Veritas Document Solutions, a CGX company situated in Buffalo Grove, IL, near Chicago, went inline and installed Standard Hunkeler roll-to-cut stack solutions on the back ends of digital presses from HP and Xerox. Also on its production floor are a Standard Horizon Stitchliner 5500, a BQ-470 Perfect Binder, and an HT-70 Three-knife Trimmer.
