Standard will also demonstrate an integrated Roll-to-Fold solution, which combines Horizon folding technology with Hunkeler unwinding, dynamic perforating, web inspection and cutting expertise. Featuring the Hunkeler DP6 Dynamic Perforator, WI6 Web Inspection System, CS6-II Rotary Cutter with chip-out, and the Horizon AF-566F Folder, this solution will be producing complex, variable-data direct mail pieces in one pass at 500 feet per minute with dynamic perforating from sheet to sheet for coupons, reply cards, or convenience checks. The Hunkeler WI6 Web Inspection System will capture high resolution color images of the full web for in-line verification, quality inspection and integrity analysis of the printed roll. The Hunkeler Site Manager can capture feedback from several WI6 systems to track the complete print and finishing production environment, and communicate with the ADF server.
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.
Vision Based Inspection Systems
The “VIVA” suite of vision-based inspection systems – custom-designed for document integrity, quality control and verification in production environments – will be shown on several systems at PRINT. VIVA cameras for sheet-level and set-level integrity checking will be mounted on the Standard Horizon StitchLiner 6000 Digital Saddlestitcher and Standard Horizon HOF-400 Sheet Feeder paired with the SPF-200L Bookletmaker. VIVA software will also be checking book block and cover matching on the Standard Horizon BQ-470 Perfect Binder. The VIVA line can be deployed across a broad range of Standard solutions to ensure quality control, integrity, tracking and reporting all documents.
