Standard Hunkeler Solutions to Blanket the Hall at On Demand

Friday, April 28, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

(Andover, Massachusetts) -- Standard Finishing Systems will show a comprehensive portfolio of Standard Hunkeler unwinding, cutting, merging, stacking and folding solutions in partnership with leading continuous-feed digital print suppliers throughout the hall at On Demand. These various solutions -- shown with Delphax, IBM, and Océ -- are tailored to meet the application requirements of the commercial print, print on demand, book publishing, transactional printing, and direct mail industries: Standard Finishing Systems – Booth 2217 Transactional Statement Printing – Roll-to-fanfold The Standard Hunkeler UW4 unwinder will be shown in-line with the UP3i-enabled Standard Hunkeler FS4 Folder, supporting a roll-to-fanfold transactional application. The FS4 features automated set-up and format changes with no requirement for manual gear adjustment, to increase the productivity of continuous-feed printers. The FS4 is capable of operating in-line to the latest and fastest generation of continuous forms printers, and can also operate off-line, for the fan-folding of preprinted rolls. Delphax Technologies – Booth 2338 Print On Demand – Roll-to-booklets The new Standard Hunkeler CS4-2 Cutter/stacker will cut sheets printed on the Delphax CR2000 Continuous Feed Digital Press and feed them into an in-line booklet maker. The CS4-2 Cutter features an automated diverter gate for blank sheets, and produces straight and accurate stacks for smooth feeding – whether to an in-line or near-line solution. IBM Printing Systems – Booth 1534 Transactional Statement Printing – Roll-to-stack, Slit/merge The Standard Hunkeler roll-to-stack slit/merge solution will be running in-line with the IBM InfoPrint 4100 HD5/6 Printing System, producing straight and accurate stacks of statements at a speed of 330 feet per minute. These high quality stacks provide trouble-free mail inserting, or the system can output cleanly-offset and separated stacks or book blocks for easy downstream handling or finishing. Océ North America – Booth 2800 Print on Demand – Roll-to-stack Lightweight Paper The Standard Hunkeler lightweight roll-to-stack solution will be running in-line with an Océ VarioStream 9220 Printing System, producing digital newspapers on-demand. The oversized sheets will be stacked in a special 27" long stacker. This solution is also ideal for short-run books: the straight and fully separated book blocks can be easily transferred to the near-line perfect binding solution, featuring the Standard Horizon BQ-270 automated off-line perfect binder and HT-30 automated off-line three-side trimmer. According to David Reny, managing director, Standard Finishing Systems, “Standard serves commercial printers, digital printers, Fortune 500 banks and utilities, direct mailers, publishers, and service bureaus of all sizes. These companies appreciate how our broad technical knowledge and applications expertise -- in graphic arts and digital print environments -- help us tailor solutions to fit their exact requirements.”
