Their new finishing systems purchased from KBR Graphics, the exclusive Canadian distributor for Standard Horizon, includes a CRF-362 creaser/folder that will be primarily be used for handling digital colour output across a range of coated or uncoated light and heavy weight stocks.
In 2009, Imprimerie Bourg Royal, led by President Yves Paquet, shifted its production toward digital printing. The CRF-362 can be used for one-pass processing of applications like restaurant menus, greeting cards, book covers and many types of marketing collateral.
“Attaining an accurately finished product is categorically the most-important step the production of digitally printed material,” said Karl Belafi Jr., Vice President KBR Graphics Ltd. “The CRF-362 is a really good fit for them and we are so pleased on how the operators have easily taken to the equipment and have hit the ground running.”
In addition to the creaser/folder, Imprimerie Bourg Royal purchased a Horizon SPF/FC-200A booklet-maker with a VAC-1000 collator. This upgrade replaced a 20-year-old Horizon system. The SPF/FC-200A is described as a high-performance inline bookletmaking system with collating, stitching, folding and fore-edge trimming.
The SPF/FC-200A can process up to 4,500 books per hour and features a 200-job memory storage and an icon-based touch-screen for job set-up. The 10-station VAC-1000 collator features a patented rotary-pulse vacuum feed system, which can operate at speeds up to 9,900 sets per hour. The system is expandable from one to six towers, with the ability to run in both directions at full rated speed.
