The SmartStacker can be operated as a near-line system. The Horizon, newly designed sheet feeder accommodates B2 (20”x 29”) sheets at up to 4,500 sheets per hour. The Finishing Line Controller (FLC) controls all setup and operation of the SmartStacker by use of JDF workflow. Near-line SmartStacker can serve multiple HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press units and other HP Indigo presses.
The SmartStacker can be connected directly to the HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press. Print submission, print, and sheet processing can be performed without any manual operation for higher sheet integrity and an efficient workflow.
SmartStacker can cut a maximum 762 x 530 mm / 30.00”x 20.86”sheet into B2, B3, A3, A4 …… minimum A6 (100 x 105 mm / 3.93” x 4.13”). With Max. 7 columns across sheet direction and Max. 4 rows along sheet direction, 28 properly imposed 2-sided pages per sheet (i.e. 56 A6 pages) can be processed. A high capacity stack can be delivered with off-set separation or as a straight stack. Individual package delivery is also possible.
Full image bleed and accurate margins are achieved through gutter cutting and edge trimming. The gutter cut is variable from 6 mm to 15 mm or slit only can be chosen. Edge trimming is adjustable from 5 mm to 60 mm. Gutter cut and trimmed waste paper are rejected into an evacuation unit.
When multiple jobs (up to two jobs per sheet) are imposed in one sheet, each job can be offset stacked. (Requires Finishing Line Controller.)
Two lines of scoring can be performed in the second processing section for greeting card and brochure applications.
Depending on the imposition, a blank page(s) with no print may appear on the parent sheet. These blank sheets or pages are automatically rejected at the 2nd process unit. Unwanted blank pages are never stacked with printed product.
Larger sheet applications such as maps or B2 size posters can be processed on the SmartStacker with full image bleed by means of edge trim only. * Optional B2 Stacker (Planned) is required.
