Standard Finishing Systems (Booth 1244) is debuting the Standard Horizon HT-80 Three-knife Trimmer, designed for operation in-line with the Standard Horizon BQ-470, SB-07, and SB-09S perfect binders, or for off-line use. The HT-80 includes advanced set-up automation through a user-friendly 10.4” color touchscreen control panel to meet the requirements of the short run print-on-demand book market. After inputting the untrimmed and finished trim book sizes, automated adjustments include the infeed, jogging, and knife sections,
The HT-80 allows for trimming of variable thickness books, one after another, for true on-demand book production. It can trim finished books from sizes ranging 5.5x3.9” up to 13.4x11.8”, with programmable memory for up to 200 different jobs, allowing instant recall of frequently-run jobs. Precision stepper motors accurately position all guides and clamps to insure professional quality cutting at speeds up to 1,000 cycles per hour. A servo-motor controlled jogging mechanism helps provide accurate book registration. The swing knife movement ensures sharp and accurate trims to produce a clean finished book, and a silicon spray unit is available to keep the knife clean during operation.
The HT-80 Trimmer is compatible with Horizon’s pXnet bindery management system, which delivers efficient bindery work planning, faster and more accurate makereadies, visibility into work-in-process, and capturing production statistics to help calculate real job costs.
