Flexible, Secure Solution for Digital & Offset Printing
Two Versions Available | View HOF-20

The Standard Horizon HOF-30 High-speed Sheet Feeder provides production speed and flexibility for digital print environments. The HOF-30 feeds pre-collated digital output at up to 27,000 sheets per hour, and can be combined with Horizon SPF-20/20A or SPF-30 class saddlestitching systems. By adding a collating tower, the finishing system can effectively serve print shops that perform both offset and digital printing under one roof. A mark reader also enables the HOF-30 to handle personalized, variable sheet count documents with integrity and verification. An optional cover feeder provides additional production flexibility.

The HOF-30 is a high speed sheet feeder. As pre-collated digital print volumes grow, and converge with offset print environments, the HOF-30 is the perfect finishing solution to serve both print sources.

Product Details

  • High Speed: The system feeds at a speed of 27,000/hr, using Horizon's patented rotary feeding system. Feeding speed is unaffected by sheet size.
  • High Pile: Pile height is 450mm. 2 sets of feeding trays are provided as standard equipment for maximum efficiency.
  • Stable Feeding: Horizon's unique stream feeding system insures that sheets are fed consistently and reliably. Sets are then accumulated and transported to the bookletmaking accessories.
  • Versatility: When connected with VAC-series collators, the HOF-30 is a flexible finishing solution serving both digital and offset printing. For digital work, the HOF-30 is a high-speed sheet feeder while the VAC-series collator provides cover inserting. When the VAC-series collator is feeding offset work, the HOF-30 serves as a bypass conveyor and reject tray for nonstop production.
  • Dynamic: The HOF-30 has the capability to handle variable data applications. A mark reader enables the HOF-30 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). Optional CCD camera: Image detection for cover (cover only).
