High Speed Sheet-Feeding - For Digitally Collated Sets
The Horizon HOF-20 high speed Sheet Feeder, with integrated cover feeder, provides production speed and flexibility for digital print environments. The HOF-20 feeds pre-collated digital output at up to 27,000 sheets per hour, and can be combined with Horizon SPF-20/20A/200A or SPF-30 class saddle stitching systems. A mark reader also enables the HOF-20 to handle personalized, variable sheet count documents with integrity and verification.
- High Speed: The System feeds at a speed of 27,000 sheets/hr., using Horizon's patented rotary suction feeding system. Feeding speed is unaffected by sheet size.
- High-Pile: Maximum pile height is 430mm (16.9") on the sheet feed tray and 130mm (5.1") on the cover feed tray. For maximum efficiency, 2 sets of trays for sheet feeding are provided as standard equipment, so one set is always available for pre-loading.
- Stable Feeding: Horizon's unique stream feeding system insures that sheets are fed consistently and reliably. Sets are then accumulated and transported to the SPF-20/20A or StitchLiner 5500.
- Flexibility: The cover feed tray also serves as a sheet feeder to perform side stitching and corner stitching of A4 / 8.5" x 11" landscape orientation. This feeder is capable of feeding a minimum sheet size of 200 x 180 mm (4.8" x 7.1").
Dynamic: The HOF-20 has the capability to handle variable data applications. A mark sensor enables the HOF-20 to handle variable sheet count documents with integrity and verification.
- High Security: Opacity Sensor: Miss-Feed, Double-Feed or Jam Detection
- Mark Sensor: Page Order Detection (Top and Last Sheet)
- Option: CCD Camera - Image Detection for the top sheet at the accumulating area.
