Tecnau Cutting/Stacking Solution Reduces Manual Print Handling


The Stack 1212 is a cost-effective and space efficient cutting/stacking solution for users of B2 colour digital presses looking to automate their finishing. Users may convert multi-up output from the emerging generation of B2+ colour digital presses (as well as sheet-fed offset presses) into smaller, stacked finished pages without guillotine cutting.

Tecnau’s Stack 1212 reduces manual print handling and consolidates labour-intensive finishing operations in a single-pass automated process. System highlights include a double cut/gutter capability for bleed print, and a cutter/slitter cartridge-based approach for easy job changeovers in minutes. Stack 1212 features efficient offline operation to handle output from multiple presses.

Stack 1212 system specs include:

– Support for 1-up to 21-up impositions.
– Handles papers from 70–350gsm.
– Input up to 6000 B2 sheets (up to 53.34 x 74.93cm/21” x 29.5”) per hour.
– Output as small as 102 x 127mm (4” x 5”) postcards.

A pallet feeder option may be included for easy integration into an existing environment. Output sheets are neatly stacked and delivered – each job can be delivered to the conveyor one at a time, individually offset within the stack or delivered when the operator-programmed stack height is reached.
