Book Block-to-Perfect Bind

Hunkeler POPP7 book block production modules and Horizon perfect binding technology are united in one complete production system. The Hunkeler UW7 unwind module feeds a web up to 30 inches wide into the PF7 plow folder, where two longitudinal folding stations create either 4-, 6- or 8-page signatures. The web is then cross-cut in the highperformance CS6-HS cutting module. Dynacut capability allows production of variable spine-length book blocks. The signatures are gathered and glued into variable sheet-count book blocks, then exit via the SD7-I star wheel delivery. The book block stacks are then transported to the newly-developed BD7 book destacker which intelligently separates variable-format and variable thickness book blocks from the stack. The book blocks are transferred to the Horizon BQ-480 Perfect Binder for spine preparation, gluing, and cover application before being three-knife trimmed in the zero-makeready, fully-variable Horizon HT-1000V.
