Horizon StitchLiner 5500 – Saddlestitching System

The Standard Horizon StitchLiner 5500 Saddlestitching System bridges the production gap between existing flat-sheet collating/bookletmaking systems and conventional high-volume saddlestitching lines. The StitchLiner eliminates signature folding as offset printed flat-sheet signatures are fed from the VAC collator to produce true saddlestitched booklets with full bleed trimming, at speeds up to 11,000 two-up booklets per hour. The system can also be equipped with the HOF High-speed Sheet Feeder for digitally collated output (up to 27,000 sheets per hour) with guaranteed document integrity using OMR mark, barcode or CCD camera verification. Professionally finished booklets up to 200 pages (50 sheets) are fully comparable with booklets produced by traditional saddlestitchers.

* Stated speed specifications WILL be reduced when using a HOF-400 feeder. Projected throughput specifications, based on customer applications, can be provided upon request.
