When viewing the film opposite, you will see a Col-Tec 8 station collator feeding an Advanced Stitch/Fold/Trim model with die cutting unit to produce 4 x miniature booklets at a rate of approximately 10,000 books per hour.  These booklets are  transported for further processing as part of an automatic in-line process.  A streaming conveyor separates the booklets before turning them through 90 degrees and on into an in-line wrapping and cutting machine to produce the final product packs.  We trust this film demonstrates something of the versatility and efficiency that Col-Tec collators and in-line finishing equipment bring to the post press market.

 

Standard Stitch, Fold & Trim Units

Some of our customers do not require the exceptional performance capabilities of the above mentioned Advanced booklet maker.  Consequently a good number are more than happy with a much lower cost Standard Stitch/Fold/Trim line.  This machine does not have added extras such as 3 knife trimming or die cutting but is built using a durable design to produce booklets accurately and reliably up to 2,200 books per hour with a maximum booklet thickness of 4mm.  The machine takes a smaller footprint and can be interfaced with most makes of horizontal collator as well as being hand fed if required.   A number of refurbished models are also offered (subject to availability).

Brochures and DVD film are also available
