Standard Horizon will “Change the Focus” to Finishing at drupa 2016″

Andover, MA – Standard Finishing Systems will partner with Horizon International of Japan at the upcoming drupa event in Düsseldorf, Germany May 31 – June 10 to demonstrate the most comprehensive display of finishing equipment at the fairgrounds. Under the theme “Change the Focus,” Horizon will unleash the hidden value of post-press. The goal is to help our customers comprehend and plan finishing steps at the beginning of the print process, to enable end-to-end automation and production efficiency. Horizon’s 16,000 square foot booth will be the largest in Hall 6, and the single largest exhibit dedicated to post-press at drupa. Twenty-four working systems – including the world premieres of a new perfect binder and folder – will be organized into various zones featuring perfect bind, stitch, fold, and digital applications. Live presentations will also highlight four innovative Smart Finishing Solutions, each one capable of processing conventional and digitally printed output.

As Horizon’s exclusive North American distributor, Standard will demonstrate to its customers a different way to think about finishing. “Post-press should be front-of-mind when conceiving an efficient production workflow, but it’s often an afterthought,” says David Reny, Executive Vice President of Standard. “Customers who can zoom-up to see the complete life cycle of the printed product – from creation through finishing – will increase productivity and profitability in the long run. We’ll be showing intelligent in-line and near-line systems that offer flexibility and investment protection well into the future.”

Six live presentations will be hosted daily in the Horizon theatre that will focus on finishing from the point of job creation for a efficiency, less waste, and much more. This is where Horizon will unveil the highly versatile, hybrid Smart Binding System. Click here to read full article

VIVA tracking & reporting

Standard VIVA inspection systems ensure that the finished documents are produced in the same sequence as the data-file. The system can sort documents based upon sorting criteria, allowing the operator to easily bundle groups. As VIVA receives a reading, it pulls a record from the database to ensure against multiple processing of a single document. VIVA also saves every image read to a designated directory providing a valuable permanent record for future reference.
