Solopress supports HP with new Horizon

Solopress has purchased a Horizon HOF-400 high speed offline feeder from IFS to support its new HP PageWide T250 web fed inkjet press.

Solopress already has a Horizon HOF-400 in place at its facility

The HP PageWide T250 was recently added to Solopress’s production portfolio, which also features HP Indigo and iGen digital presses, Heidelberg SpeedMaster litho presses and wide-format machines.

The role of the Horizon HOF-400 – Solopress’s second machine of this type – will be to support the HP PageWide T250 with processes such as cover feeding, variable page count, bleed trimming and creasing for digital printing.

The HOF-400 finishing system can also be connected with finishing devices for the offset outputs to process both digital and offset print.

Jack Clifford, head of operations at Solopress, comments: “We wanted something that would help us stitch the short runs from the new HP PageWide T250.

“We easily manage the long runs with our existing machinery. For short runs we were spending more time setting up the stitcher than running it. The HOF-400 allows us to manage these shorter runs more efficiently by loading collated sets with many different titles.

“It also gives us the flexibility to either complete jobs using the HOF or the hoppers. If there is a run with a high page count it makes more production sense to use the hoppers. If it is a small pagination then it is best to run it through the HOF-400.”
