Commercial printer Color Co has said it expects to see a return on investment in its Horizon Stitchliner within 18 months.

The Cheltenham-based company installed the Intelligent Finishing Systems-supplied machine in order to cut turnaround time on SRA3 work.
Managing director Ashley Wainwright said: "We can now complete an SRA3 run straight off the press. There is no pre-trimming required at all as work goes straight on the saddle.
"That is a massive benefit as it takes a good percentage of work off the guillotine. On a 50,000 run that could save us two to three hours on pre-trimming and over a month that could add up to a couple of days. As a result we think ROI can be achieved within 18 months."
Color Co replaced an aging Horizon SPF200 bookletmaker, which had been outgrown by the company’s booklet production. However, Wainwright added that the Stitchliner also enables the company to complete folding in one pass and adds increased competitiveness on longer runs.
The Stitchliner works from flat four-page sections and has an integral three-knife trimming station, removing the need to pre-fold into signatures or pre-trim top and tail.
Thanks to its touchscreen technology, the machine can achieve automated set-ups in less than two minutes, while an optional centre knife trimmer for two-up production enables a production speed of up to 11,000bph.
Color Co currently runs a Xerox 700, Xerox 4595 and Minolta Bizhub and two five-colour Heidelberg Speedmasters. The company also intends to install a 10-colour Heidelberg Speedmaster later this year.
