Add a simple, economical digitally-printed newspaper finishing line to your operation. NewsReady cuts, accumulates, folds and stacks operating in-line with web-fed digital printers at speeds up to 100 m/min (330 ft/min). This solution features the Unwinder 550, Buffer b12, Cutter TC 7000 HS, Accumulator TC 1007 L and Folder with Exit Conveyor.
The system produces 1-up folded booklets with up to 24 sheets (96 pages) in each set to an exit conveyor ready for delivery or inserting.
Finished newspapers are neat, well folded and accumulated on an exit conveyor to be collected by the operator or delivered to near-line or off-line inserters. The NewsReady cutter cartridges have a unique design which enables quick application changeover and easy on-site maintenance.
This modular system can be easily reconfigured with a Tecnau stacker and shingling conveyor – run newspapers at night with the Accumulator‑Folder, and swap modules the next morning for more conventional, non-folded cut/stack applications. Users are not tied to a single, inflexible solution.
