Heidelberg Postpress Deutschland GmbH (Heidelberg), Polar, Kama and ATS Tanner Banding Systems (ATS) will be represented on a shared booth on the Hunkeler Innovation Days 2011 (February 14-17, 2011, exhibition site Lucerne, Switzerland). The single production steps of a top-quality brochure with PUR-perfect binding will be in the focus of the joined presentation. With its easy operation and high automation features, the machines are integrated into one seamless production workflow facing the challenges of print products in smaller run length market, like book-on-demand production for example.
The visitors can follow the live production from single sheets to the perfect bound end product: After having cut the sheets on a Polar 66 X cutter they are processed on a TH 56/6 buckle plate Stahlfolder to single signatures which then will be bound to a finished product on the Eurobind 600 PUR perfect binder. The cover itself will be finished with a hot foil stamping on an automatic die-cutter Kama ProCut 53, the worldwide first flat-bed die-cutter for A3-formats. Thanks to the change-over from punching process to hot foil stamping in only ten minutes, the Kama ProCut 53 is predestined for the use in the short run printing market.
Downstream the automated TH 56 Stahlfolder a US-2000 FAB-A folder bundler from ATS is installed. Due to the cooperation of both companies, users of Heidelberg folding technology will profit by the comprehensive know-how of ATS in the area of economical banding and packaging technology.
