UK specialist finishing equipment supplier IFS has expanded its portfolio of Horizon systems with the addition of the Horizon VAC L600H six bin collator.
Designed for the efficient A4 landscape booklet production of both digital and offset jobs, it delivers improved digital sheet feeding performance by incorporating smooth air flow with individual air blow fans at each bin. These enable sufficient air separation ensuring stable feeding.
There is also an optional extra side blower ideal for large size and heavy weight substrates.
The Horizon VAC L600H features overlap and speed adjustment and a range of suction and blower levels while power consumption per tower has been reduced by 30%.
Combined with the Horizon StitchLiner Mark III saddlestitcher or the Horizon SPF-200L bookletmaker, the system is capable of producing a variety of applications including A4 landscape booklets and large format calendars, with ease and efficiency.
‘There has been a huge growth in interest for landscape work and these collators have been created to support fast, efficient and high quality handling,’ explained IFS managing director Bryan Godwyn. ‘They can work inline with highly productive Horizon solutions to create a streamlined workflow for optimum efficiency.’
