Rollem introduces PhotoSlit, which the company developed in response to market demands for a photobook finishing system that combines high cut quality and productivity with minimum operator skills and maintenance, along with the ability to change settings easily between jobs.
Initially, PhotoSlit is being aimed at fast turnaround printers with digital web-to-print workflows for jobs up to SRA3. PhotoSlit can handle up to 8,000 SRA3 sheets per hour. The page size range is from A6 to A3 and Rollem says it could make a system capable of handling sheets down to 75 x 30 mm.
“Our comprehensive in-house design and engineering facilities allow us to create finishing equipment that meets a very specific need,” says managing director Stuart Murphy. “PhotoSlit is a good example of how we can respond quickly to create a bespoke finishing solution.”
PhotoSlit features two-dimensional bleed cutting with a gutter size as small as 1.6 mm. The blades reportedly should last between three and six months in a busy production environment.
