Roll Systems Shows Efficient Paper Workflow at IPEX
Press release from the issuing company
Birmingham, UK (April 16, 2002) - Digital workflows might be the talk of IPEX 2002 but having a good paper workflow can be just as important, and Roll Systems is demonstrating paper handling systems in several manufacturers' booths, such as the IBM booth (5-181), Canon booth (3-140) and C.P. Bourg booth (6-230).
Equipment will include the new Roll Systems DocuSheeter LS, which enables up to 18 hours of non-stop paper feeding to a Canon imageRUNNER 110 printer and IBM Infoprint 2000.
The DocuSheeter LS, based upon Roll Systems' established DocuSheeter line for cut sheet printers, sits next to the input side of the printer and comes equipped with a quick-change unwinder and precision cutter. With as many as 60,000 sheets per roll, users can print more in less time, while reducing paper and labour costs.
The DocuSheeter LS runs all form sizes and paper weights that the printer can handle. Users may switch between A4 and A3 (or 8.5 x 11 and 11 x 17) applications without changing rolls. Paper savings are especially significant on odd-sized sheets, lightweight and other non-standard papers, while new print registration and hole punch options offer additional savings. The DocuSheeter LS can be seen in operation throughout the show in the Canon and IBM booths.
In the C.P. Bourg booth, Roll Systems will be demonstrating its DocuSheeter DT on-line to a Xerox DocuTech. The DocuSheeter DT is a roll feed system for high-speed printers, incorporating quick-change unwinder, precision cutter and sheet transport. It produces up to 45,000 sheets from a roll to continuously feed the DocuTech, allowing users to produce more documents in less time while lowering costs.
Visitors can also hear about the new Input Grain Rotator Option for Roll's DocuSheeter DT and the new Signature Stacker, a key component of the new Signature Folder/Stacker marketed by Xerox which can be combined with the DocuSheeter DT for an end-to-end solution for Xerox DocuTechs.
The new Input Grain Rotator Option for Roll's DocuSheeter DT allows producing of long grain perfect bound books from rolls while enjoying savings associated with two-up printing. It consists of a module positioned between the DocuSheeter DT cutter module and the DocuTech. The Grain Rotator automatically takes sheets from the cutter, and reorients them at a right angle to their entry direction, presenting grain-appropriate sheets to the DocuTech.
The Signature Stacker stacks folded signatures from the Bourg unit and offsets book blocks. The finished book blocks are immediately available, making the Signature Stacker ideal for off-line/near-line bindery operation.
