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
Space efficient with footprint of about 100 square feet
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 oﬀset 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.
