Ideal for digital
Postpress operation of digital printing!
The Hohner Robo-Feeder reduces the cost and man-power involved in bookletmaking: Due to its short set-up times, this special feeder is particularly suited for small, medium, and frequently changing run lengths in digital printing. Its versatility enables digital print shops to process even highly specialized jobs at a profit. The Robo-Feeder works faster than a digital printing press and can therefore feed print output from multiple presses. It works with all printers and digital presses and will not become outdated when other machinery does. A sorter at the printer is unnecessary, since the Robo-Feeder automatically separates the stacked sheets into sets. The feeder reliably processes booklets of up to 100 pages and cover sheets printed digitally or using offset. A generous capacity of 1,300 sheets (80 gsm) makes frequent reloading unnecessary.
The separate suction and blast air adjustment ensures a gentle processing of digital prints and prevents marks on sensitive surfaces. The optional mark reader supports fault detection in case of a wrong order of sheets, thereby reducing spoilage. It also allows the user to produce booklets with different numbers of sheets. This function is valuable for personalized prints in particular. Linking the Robo-Feeder to the Foldnak Compact will create a production line in which booklets are collated, stapled, folded, square-pressed and then pressed and trimmed.
