High-speed systems for industrial processing of magazines and commercial products
Ferag is the global market leader for conveyor and processing systems in the graphics industry. Postpress processing systems for small and large circulations are our core competence. From consulting to concept development to implementation, Ferag offers total solutions from a single source. High-speed systems for industrial processing of magazines, catalogues, advertising inserts and similar commercial products belong just as much to Ferag’s portfolio as print product finishing solutions.
Thanks to the rotary principle implemented throughout the workflow, top speeds of up to 50,000 copies per hour are possible for all print products and opening systems.
For maximum automation and optimum operator efficiency during the numerous product changes required in commercial printing, Ferag offers the PreTronic automatic format adjustment system. Here, every product format can be entered at a central display and input unit (GUI). For recurring jobs, PreTronic automatically moves all axes to the correct position for minimizing changeover times.
Incomplete copies at the UniDrum rotary gathering and stitching system can be eliminated thanks to QualityEye sheet identification. There is a camera able to recognize a pattern or barcode. Even different language versions can be recognized as patterns. Out-feed of incomplete copies comes after the UniDrum.
Numerous Ferag developments for inline finishing – such as the StreamStitch stitching drum, the SNT-50 trimming drum, the TriLiner for applying MemoSticks and cards, and the StreamFold quarterfold system – are tailored to one another in such a way that the flexibility of the production plants and the associated product portfolio grows exponentially. Further modules include inkjet addressing systems, high-speed stack turners and film wrapping systems that can meet the market requirements of every publishing house.
