Tecnau: New cutting/stacking system for B2+ sheets

Tecnau announces general availability of its Stack 1212 cutting/stacking system. Users may convert multi-up output from the emerging generation of B2+ color 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 labor-intensive finishing operations in a single-pass automated process.

Stack 1212 system specs include:

  • Support for 1-up to 21-up impositions
  • Handles papers from 70 – 350 gsm
  • Input up to 6000 B2 sheets (up to 21” x 29.5”) per hour
  • Output as small as 4” x 5” postcards (102 x 127 mm)
  • Space efficient with footprint of about 100 square feet / 30 sqm

Systems 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. 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 o?set within the stack or delivered when the operator-programmed stack height is reached.

“Tecnau is excited to launch the Stack 1212. We believe it’s a cost-effective and space efficient cutting/stacking solution for users of B2 color digital presses looking to automate their finishing,” says Scott Peterson, Tecnau product marketing manager.
