The new Hunkeler Universal Sheet Finishing segment is based on a modular platform for digital finishing from sheets. Hunkeler brings decades of experience in the field of digital continuous processing to the growing needs of sheet finishing.
Digital sheetfed printing systems can only achieve maximum performance in the high-performance range with high-performance postpress systems. Inline or nearline finishing solutions can save several steps in the production of books, catalogs, mailings, commercial products or transaction documents. The sheet-fed printer can take full advantage of the paper variety or mixed papers from several input trays for a product without having to collect them offline. This makes short runs or even run 1 productions on different papers possible and can be produced rationally and with the shortest throughput time.
Hunkeler offers the following first solutions in its continuously growing modular portfolio:
In the high-performance range, printing systems only reach their full potential with efficient finishing systems. The Hunkeler DocuTrim is a multifunctional system for online sheet processing that satisfies the requirements of the latest generation of printers. It produces online on sheet-fed printing systems and also works offline. In the online mode, the DocuTrim and printer can also be used separately from one another for processing separate jobs. With its individually combinable cutting, perforating and creasing in the dynamic multi-processor (DMP), the system already addresses the market requirements of tomorrow. It enables the cutting of various formats and position-independent slit cuts and chip-outs. Thanks to the system‘s modular structure, the wide range of solutions can be individually extended.
The HL8 is the ideal solution for high-security punching and perforating applications, for example, checks, coupons and mailings, roll-fed from the UW6 unwinding module. Production capacity up to 150 m/minute in 1-up or 2-up mode. Fully dynamic, customized punch and perforation patterns are possible by directly importing native CAD/CAM system data. the laser editor makes it even simpler and more efficient preparation and management of the laser pattern in production environments. The HL8 can process both a continuous paper web and paper sheets. The unique design even allows both possibilities to be processed in one module. This means that there are no limits to production flexibility.
