The modular Hunkeler roll to fan-fold solution with optional vertical stacking systems and carts for efficient print and mailroom operation. Reliable inline high speed operation with digital continuous feed printing systems in a space saving package and many modular options such as forms processors, web inspection, stack turner, etc.

Roll to Stack solution
The modular Hunkeler roll to stack solution for sheeted stack output with digital continuous feed printing systems. Innovative non-stop stacker or large sheet stacker with single cut sheeter or variable chip-out rotary double cutter for full bleed products in the Transactional/Transpromotional and Print on Demand segments.
With its PC7 primer coater module, Hunkeler presents a world’s first. This innovative solution can be used for primer application (pre-coating) or varnishing (top-coating). The PC7 coating module undoubtedly gives inkjet technology an additional impetus as an interesting alternative to established printing processes.
Depending on the intended use, the PC7 is integrated either before or after the digital printing process. Off-line configurations are also possible. Depending on the application and varnish a dryer / evacuation system may be required.

The modular Hunkeler newspaper solution for the production of variable on demand tabloid and broadsheet newspapers offline or inline with digital continuous feed printing systems.

Line or dot gluing option for collated tabloid newspaper, brochures or signatures.

Modular book block solutions

The modular Hunkeler book block solution for the production of optionally glued book signatures inline with high speed digital continuous feed printing systems up to 30" wide. Reliable high performance solution with folding, cutting and stacking for today's on demand book production.

Signature and loose leaf production

At a speed of up to 200 meters per minute, the Double Plow Folder PF7 can be used for the most powerful full colour digital printing systems available on the market. Apart from the production of signatures, loose leaf stacks can also be made by opening the fold with an edge trim in the CS6 cutting module. With its Double Plow Folder PF7, Hunkeler has consolidated the open concept which assures maximum flexibility for users. The processing line can be used as an offline or inline configuration with any desired printing system.

The modular Hunkeler punch and perf processor solution for static or dynamic operation with digital continuous feed printing systems. Reduction of paper and labour cost with inline converting of plain paper when needed with tractor feed holes (remaliner), register mark printing of top of form mark (TOF), cross perforation (dynamic or static), vertical perforation (dynamic or static), file hole punching, and custom punching patterns.

Hunkeler presented an innovative, patented laser process for safety punching and perforation. The areas of applications include the production of checks, coupons and direct mail pieces where the dynamic stamping of distinct individual shapes for safety characteristics or any arbitrary dynamic perforation pattern is required.

System consisting of:

  • HL6 Hunkeler Laser Module
  • 1 Chiller per laserhead
  • Exhausting system for paper waste and dust
  • WI6 Web Inspection System
  • Use of the WI6 web inspection system from the Hunkeler Control Platform ensures the in-line monitoring of security punching and perforations.
