The ultimate concept with up to 5 functions having flexibility in mind to meet your needs – in terms of technology, quantity and versatility. Complete freedom to choose the point of time of a possible extension, but in particular with regard of the many combination possibilities arising out of the five components and the base unit. The modular conception of FUTURA allows a very individual configuration fitted to the needs. Minimum 17 different installation options are available; eight of them offer even parallel production mode.
A solid base for the FUTURA - A stitching unit with automated wire length and thickness adjustment including stitching leg via a 15 inch color touchscreen with intuitive and non-text design and a trimmer allowing a B4 final format with optimum trimming quality. Thus, making it extremely user friendly. Permanent part of the FUTURA builds the proven Hohner stitching unit and trimmer. Stitching thickness of up to 5 mm and – in the spirit of maximum ease of use – a reverse mode at the trimmer are our standard. Relying on this solid core components, FUTURA can include up to five different alternatives and combinable feeding systems, all modular and expandable.
1. Stitching unit
It is a proven fact that you buy experience when you choose any of our stitching heads. Once you combine them with the stitching unit of the HSB 9.000 there are many advantages for the user. The stitching unit is equipped with 2 Hohner Universal 52/8S narrow stitching heads as standard, this can also be extended to a maximum of 4 of these extremely operator friendly stitching heads. With the Universal 52/8S we have decided on the fast all-rounder from the Hohner-Narrow Stitching Head series. This head can easily handle 9.000 stitches per hour. The precise central adjustment tool of the HSB 9.000 grants an efficient adjustment of wire length and stitching thickness at the same time. A new developed stitching monitor system (without any mechnical setting) as well as a caliper control are available for optional integration, allowing by this the maximum quality control without increasing the length of the line. There is a choice of many optional exchange part sets to offer the use of various crown widths, loop diameters, and wire types. The stitching unit itself is a completely new design. The reliable gripper system (transport finger with polyurethane inlets) ensures exact positioning of staples in brochures even at maximum speed. Flexibility, speed and precision – all in your favor.
All relevant settings for a perfect three sided cut are easily adjusted by hand without the need for tools in a matter of minutes. Even two-up production (optional) can be adjusted in only minutes. Innovative gear box technology allows gentle braking of the belts, so that even products travelling at higher speed are slowed down gently as they arrive at the backstops. Quiet running and cutting accuracy characterize this trimmer. The knives are combined in a yoke and are guided by six lineal bearings. This results in a totally accurate guide system which does not allow any movement, ensuring an extremely long life of the blades. For optimum protection of the surface of the product, the transportation belts come to a complete standstill during the cutting process. Quality - a Hohner strength.
3. Conveyer table
Hohner offers the right conveyer table for all applications. Connecting other units, including units from other manufacturers or Hohner delivery devices such as compensating stackers or shingle conveyors, are connected here.
4. Touch screen
This intelligent electronic control system makes all HSB 9.000 processes run smoothly. For example, the programmable logic controller (PLC) enables infinitely variable speed control in real time (~1,000–9,000 cycles/hour). Individual feeders are switched on and off manually. Thickness monitoring, as well as missing-sheet detection, is centrally controlled and monitored. Furthermore, the PLC controls the synchronous filling and emptying of the collecting chain (cascade connection) as well as the total and partial total counter with shingle marking. Error messages in the event of paper jams, missing sheets, unsealed protective covers, etc., are indicated optically via a signal lamp and additionally as image and text information on the display. The generous 15'' touch display is ergonomic and modern, providing an immediate overview of the relevant machine settings and information. Even error messages down to the sensor level are visualized, helping you to find simple and immediate solutions in the event of a fault. This is intelligence that saves time!
5. Shingle delivery
The Hohner shingle delivery will automatically batch products on the delivery belt. An optional offset conveyer allows more time to bundle, as it alternates batches either side of the delivery belt. This gives you more order and easy recognition during production. Thinking for the customer – another Hohner quality.
