Product Details

  • 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.
