Purchased from Intelligent Finishing Systems (IFS), the 4,500bph Horizon SPF-200L landscape feed bookletmaker combines stitching and folding with the ability to handle sheets up to 640mm in length.

JDF-ready, the device offers instant set-ups via an icon-based colour touchscreen, which can also be used for on-the-run adjustments, storage and recall of up to 200 jobs.

Exaclair specialises n the supply of stationery, office supplies, art materials, craft products, educational activities, stickers, luggage, leatherware and wrapping paper to wholesale and retailers nationwide.

David Swallow, production manager at Exaclair, says: “We needed to replace our very old folding machine and update our manual methods used to manufacture our soft cover books.

“The Horizon SPF-200L was the best replacement we found within our price range that could cover all our existing folding and stitching requirements.

“We did look at other systems from a number of manufacturers but what stood out for us was its layout and module approach. We liked the fact we can add additional modules at a later date.

“It has already helped us win new additional work from our customers and we expect is will pay for itself within two years.”
