Collating Machines Comments Off

Standard Horizon StitchLiner 5500 photo collating machinesThe Standard Horizon StitchLiner bridges the production gap between existing flat sheet collating / bookletmaking systems and conventional high-volume saddlestitching lines. Offset or digitally printed flat-sheet signatures are fed from the Standard Horizon SpeedVAC collator to produce true saddlestitched booklets with full bleed trimming, at speeds up to 11,000 two-up booklets per hour. Professionally finished booklets up to 200 pages (50 sheets) are fully comparable with booklets produced by traditional saddlestitchers. Can also be equipped with the HOF high-speed sheet feeder for digitally collated output (up to 27,000 sheets per hour) with guaranteed document integrity using mark, bar code, or CCD camera verification.

DigiVAC Collating and Finishing System

Collating Machines Comments Off


The benefit is clear: it is far more efficient for a collator to run constantly at a comfortable, consistent pace, than to run at a higher speed with frequent downtime for bin reloading.

Continuous, Non-Stop Production
At the heart of this is the revolutionary patented suction feed system, which feeds sheets from the bottom of the paper stack. This means that the operator can reload the bins whilst the machine is still running, before the bins actually run out

Versatile & Reliable Feed System
Feeding from the bottom of the stack means the paper presentation to the feeder is always constant, so feeding is consistent and reliable. The stack of paper is floated on an air bed, with the individual sheets fanned apart by air separation. This is gentle on delicate papers and it will not scuff the toner on digitally printed work.

Cost and Space Efficient
There is no need to purchase extra bins or towers to achieve loading-on-the-run, so floor-space requirements and capital outlay are reduced.

Modular System
The DigiVAC is a modular system – choose from DIGIVAC Standard or Plus ‘+’ version; 8 or 12 bins per tower; Single or two tower (DigiVAC+ only).? Two stackers – criss-cross or straight are available. Booklet making options include the Automatic Stitch-Fold/Trim and BookMaster booklet makers (manual or automatic).

Easy-to-use Graphical User Interface
The DigiVAC+ features a multi-lingual colour touch-screen interface that controls all connected equipment, including stacking, stitching, folding and trimming, giving greater ease of use and fast set-up. Productivity is enhanced by preset sizes, flexible bin linking, multi-set programming and batch insertion.

Integrated Control
Control the entire finishing system, collator, stacker and booklet maker from the central colour touch screen. (DigiVac+ only)

Continuous non-stop production
Fast start-up
Collates a wide range of stock materials without adjustment
Gentle on delicate papers and digital print
Easy to use – just one adjustment for different stocks
Operator-friendly, and less strenuous to run than other systems
Automatic detection for miss, double, jam and empty bin
Security lock prevents operator errors during job
Virtually maintenance-free, no lubrication and no consumable parts

Mitsubishi DPX 4 System

Digital Printing Presses Comments Off

Mitsubishi 	DPX 4 System photo digital printing pressesAdvanced drum with outstanding output
The drum in the DPX 4 is based on the latest manufacturing technologies. It is made of extruded aluminum to achieve extremely high precision and accuracy. DPX 4 will expose at any resolution between 1200 and 3000 dpi. This is achieved by automatic and dynamical adjustment of the spot size through varying laser intensity and focus. This results in a perfect spot that gives you high quality prints.
DPX 4 comes standard with a Bacher 425mm punch with the possibility to change to a new position very easily. It can also be field upgraded for Bacher 220mm punch as well as Komori 550mm punch.

The built-in processor is a twin-bath processor with one temperature controlled activator tank with mechanical stirrer and circulation pump to ensure even processing and a stabilizer tank. Both tanks have sensors for controlling the chemistry level and active replenishment to ensure the correct level of new chemistry in the tanks and to achieve precise activation of the polyester plate. The dryer unit is sensor equipped for computer controlled temperature, ensuring a correctly dried plate, ready for use. DPX 4 takes no engineer, and with the maintenance friendly design, the processor requires only little attention and gives you more time for your core business – Printing.

User friendly interface
The DPX is controlled by the PC based DotManager interface. This very easy-to-use interface gives you full control of the unit allowing you to monitor machine activity at any stage of the processing. The DotManager covers everything from defining material set-ups, material compartment selections and setting up the processor preferences. Service can even be done remotely by your service provider, using remote software feature thus keeping service cost down.

Flexible front-end connections
DPX 4 can be connected to any common front-end workflow. Esko-Graphics offers a choice of one of three different software options. EskoTiff, a simple 1-bit-tiff interface for connection to other Rips or workflow, or our well-known RipMate or FlowDrive 4. Regardless of your workflow – we have the solution for you.
Expand your business
DPX 4 is ideal for the 4-up market, especially together with the imposition feature of our FlowDrive workflow. One media compartment for 61m of 0.2mm polyester plate on 6 inch core and one 425-mm Bacher 2000 plate punch come as standard. Plate size up to 750 x 680mm (26,77 x 29,5″).
