Flexible production supported by fully automated Horizon AF-408F

Print Solutions

Pharmaceutical leaflet and small format folding production has been made simpler and easier with the new Horizon AF-408F fully automated small format 8-buckle folder. The latest addition to Horizon’s range of folders can be configured in line, parallel or at 90 degrees, with a Horizon T-406F/S 6-buckle second station folder to provide a total of 14 buckle plates.

Building on the capabilities of the Horizon AF-406F folder, the 30,000 sheets per hour Horizon AF-408F has been designed to respond to market pressures such as demand for shorter and more variable runs, increased labour cost, increased material cost, price competition and difficulty in finding skilled operators.

It also supports operation in a post Covid-19 environment where there is the additional need to adhere to social distancing guidelines.

Fully automatic set up is made easy via a 12.1 inch intuitive colour touch screen panel that provides simple and fast access to a wide range of pre-programmed folding template patterns and 200 job memories. They enable the easy production of pharmaceutical leaflets as well as small format folding for applications such as pamphlets, instruction manuals and guide sheets.

‘The highly automated Horizon AF-408F small format folder has been developed to manage the broadest range of applications from pharmaceutical leaflets to general commercial small format print,’ said Eric Keane, IFS managing director. ‘The fully automatic solution ensures easy job completion no matter the skill level of the operator. It makes short run variable jobs easy and reduces the number of touchpoints required for fast, safe operation.’

The Horizon AF-408F folder is available now.
