The all NEW PowerSquare™ 160 is specifically designed to meet the growing application requirements in mid to high volume digital printing and finishing operations.
The booklet maker combines optimum book quality with robust and reliable performance. All the key processes needed to produce high quality booklets: stapling, folding, spine forming, and face trimming are combined into one compact system.
Together with Ricoh’s latest print technology, you can produce a wide variety of book formats – including A4 landscape. Booklets are enhanced with the SquareBack finish to provide the professional look and feel of a perfect bound book.
The Plockmatic PowerSquare™ 160 for Ricoh is now available in Europe.
The booklet is a great way to tell a story. And the need for high quality booklets on a wider range of media is growing fast. The PowerSquare™ 160 delivers booklets finished with the unrivaled SquareBack finish.
SquareBack books can carry print on the spine, just like a perfect bound book, making it much easier to handle, and more efficient to stack and pack. And the books look great.
The PowerSquare™ Two-Knife Trimmer (P2T) is a compact module that completes the booklet making process by trimming the top and bottom edges of the book after it’s made. This reduces workflow steps by eliminating pre or post press trimming on a guillotine.
It’s a professional solution for full-bleed printed work, especially important for colour printed applications.
The PowerSquare™ 160 has a state-of-the-art control system with an interface organized as series of tiles to manage machine functions. Even inexperienced operators can get up to speed quickly. The control system also contains extensive service and diagnostic systems which can be remotely accessed for preventative maintenance, fault analysis and system monitoring. The result is higher productivity and uptime.
The PowerSquare™ 160 features a low impact stapler cartridge system. Staples are supplied in cartridges of 5000 and are easily changed in a few seconds. The cartridges feature extra high tensile steel staples to ensure perfect results on a wide range of coated and uncoated stock.
The staple pitch is automatically adjusted depending on book thickness.
A unique paper transport system with constant position monitoring ensures accurate and consistent paper handling. This ensures optimal sheet management and fold quality from start to finish – important when processing long sheets.
