InvestorCOM adds Standard/Horizon equipment
InvestorCOM, an investor communications solutions company headquartered in Brantford, Ontario, has installed a Standard/Horizon HOF-400 with SPF/FC-200A high-speed sheet feeder and booklet-making system.
Purchased from KBR Graphics, this is InvestorCOM’s second such automated system purchased since 2014, adding to its previous investment in a Standard/Horizon Stitchliner 5500 with HOF-400.
“The simple [use of] automation makes it easy to operate and the non-stop production helps InvestorCOM keep up with increased production demands,” said Steve Klaric, Sales Manager at KBR Graphics. “Their first high-quality reliable booklet system had surpassed their expectations and it was a straightforward decision for them to expand with a second system.”
The HOF-400 sheet feeder is configured to run inline with the Standard/Horizon SPF/FC-200A booklet-making system. Variable page count production can be handled with integrity and verification using the standard mark reader, explains KBR Graphics, which the operator can quickly change between top and bottom reading for different applications.
The HOF-400 can feed up to 45,000 sheets per hour (8.5 x 11 inches) and can accommodate a maximum sheet size of 14 x 24 inches. Leveraging a 7-inch colour touchscreen for intuitive setup, the system can also accommodate sheet feeding, cover feeding, accumulating, and manual feeding depending on the job requirements.
The SPF/FC-200A is described as a high-performance inline booklet-making system with collating, stitching, folding and fore-edge trimming. Outputting up to 4,500 books per hour, it features 200-program job memory storage for instant recall, and an icon-based touchscreen.
Established in 2010, InvestorCOM was selected as one of Hamilton-Niagara’s Top Employers for 2018. It provides financial technology and outsourcing services to banks, asset managers, insurance companies and investment dealers. InvestorCOM has developed a suite of FinTech solutions in response to increasing regulation and the demand for more effective communication and disclosure from the financial services industry.
