Signature Book Block Solution
The Standard Hunkeler Signature Book Block Solution produces ready-to-bind, glued book blocks from a 30″ wide digital web and can run in-line with continuous-feed digital print engines or off-line.
- Folding: The Standard Hunkeler PF7 Double Plow-fold Module applies 1 or 2 folds in the web direction as needed.
- Cutting and stacking: The new high-performance CS6-HS Cutter converts the multiple-up imposition into book blocks, which are then glued and stacked as 4-, 6-, or 8-page signatures on the new SD7 Double Starwheel Delivery Stacker.
- Near-line finishing: From there, the glued book blocks can be safely and easily transferred to a near-line perfect binder for book finishing.
- Output cycles: The Signature Book Block Solution is capable of non-stop operation up to 653 feet per minute and 450 output cycles per hour (multiple books per cycle.)
