iCE StitchLiner Mark V Saddlestitcher

The iCE StitchLiner Mark V Saddlestitcher from Standard Horizon was specially designed to run inline or near-line with high-speed, roll-fed digital presses. This automated saddlesticher produces high-quality booklets at speeds of up to 6,000 booklets/hour. Individual sheets are tightly folded along scoring lines for consistent quality, even with high page counts or variable page count applications. The Mark V also supports an optional cover feeder and can handle sheet sizes up 20” x 14” and produce a wide range of booklet sizes including A4 Landscape.

    • Individual creasing and scoring: Dual creasing rollers at the in-feed crease every sheet individually before they are folded and accumulated, making tighter, flatter booklets and increasing fold accuracy. Individual sheet creasing and stream folding eliminates the need for sub-setting on higher pager counts, increasing productivity for booklets as high as 200 pages.
    • Stable sheet transport: A newly designed sheet register allows for more stable transportation of a wider range of paper stocks, including very thin stocks, and a redesign of the accumulating section significantly reduces static build-up between pages, ensuring continuous production.
    • No manual touchpoints: Variable production on the Mark V is fully automated, requiring no operator intervention whatsoever. The system can automatically change stitch length, belt and roller pressure, and registration control in the trimmer based on page count.
    • Optional cover feeding: The optional dual-bin cover feeder merges covers into the print stream without affecting production speed. Additionally, up to three dual-bin feeders can be combined in one system allowing for the pre-staging of covers and the option to interpose up to 3 sheets anywhere within the booklet. This feeder can also function as a digital feeder to expand production capabilities.
    • Intelligent tracking: The Mark V’s tracking system ensures booklet integrity with optional barcode reading, cover and book block matching, sheet separation verification, and automated rejection of booklets with detected errors.
