Roll-to-Fold Gen8

The Generation 8 Roll-to-Fold solution from Hunkeler integrates the Standard Horizon AF-566F Digital in-line signature folder (featuring six parallel and four optional cross plates) in-line with the Hunkeler UW6 unwinder, WM8 merger, and CS8 rotary cutter for operation at speeds up to 590 feet per minute. The advanced folder automation and touchscreen control brings ultra-quick set-up to high-speed continuous-feed print platforms, allowing complex, variable-data direct mail pieces to be produced in one pass.

The UW6 core-driven unwind module is suited for flexible, high-performance use, allowing rolls to be changed quickly with motor-assisted, semi-automated loading. The UW6 is available in 20.5” and 22.5” wide versions.

The WM8 web merger slits the web in half and merges left under right or right under left to enable east-west printing of 2-up forms delivered as a single stack. Optional edge trimmer or gutter cut can remove marks in the WM8, or later in the CS8.

The CS8 rotary cross cutting module consistently produces clean and accurate cuts, based on a top of form (register) mark on either side of the web, ensuring the highest levels of productivity and output quality. The individually driven slitters allow the processing of multiple up forms, and edge trimmers and gutter cuts are available to remove marks or white areas.

The system can also be configured with the DP8 Dynamic Perforator to allow lateral and longitudinal perforation as well as punching.

The compact new WI8 web inspection system employs state-of-the-art CIS technology (compact image sensor) for quality monitoring (color, register, codings, variable data, etc.) while production is in progress. The new Hunkeler Workflow Manager makes job setup, operation and monitoring of the production line centralized and convenient.
