The newly launched Tecnau Stack 1212 cutting/stacking system that streamlines production of B2+ digital print is now available from IFS.
The latest addition to the Tecnau portfolio enables print operations to convert multi-up output from the emerging generation of B2+ colour digital presses, as well as sheet fed offset presses, into smaller, stacked finished pages without guillotine cutting.
Tecnau’s Stack 1212 reduces manual print handling and consolidates labour intensive finishing operations in an automated single pass process.
Key features of the stack 1212 system are:
• Support for 1-up to 21-up impositions
• Handles papers from 70 – 350 gsm
• Input up to 6000 B2 sheets (up to 21” x 29.5”) per hour
• Output as small as 4” x 5” postcards (102 x 127 mm)
• Space efficient with footprint of about 100 square feet /30 sqm
System highlights include a double cut/gutter capability for bleed print, and a cutter/slitter cartridge based approach for easy job changeovers in minutes.
The Stack 1212 features efficient offline operation to handle output from multiple presses. A pallet feeder option may be included for easy integration into an existing environment. Output sheets are neatly stacked and delivered – each job can be delivered to the conveyor one at a time, individually offset within the stack or delivered when the operator programmed stack height is reached.
IFS Managing Director Eric Keane states: “This cost effective and space efficient cutting/stacking solution is ideally suited to users of B2 colour digital presses looking to automate their finishing. Its smooth and streamlined operation supports greater production efficiency and flexibility – ideal for operations looking to responsively increase their capacity.”
