PowerSquare 160

The machine is configured with one or two precise and reliable vacuum feeders, each with a 150mm capacity. OMR is standard, with optional barcode readers. Finishing your print jobs offline gives flexibility in your workflow and handles the output from multiple digital engines.

The PowerSquare™160 is a modular open-architecture system that is flexible and versatile: it lets you produce booklets from a wide range of sheet sizes and materials, including A4 landscape format and heavy cover stocks. With optional accessories for full bleed trimming and book stacking, enabling you to increase productivity and efficiency.

Hand feeding

Hand feeding is often the most practical solution for low volume digital printed jobs, where ease of set-up and flexible media sizes are important. Book quality is never a compromise with the fully featured Hand feed PowerSquare™ 160. This model is designed with an easy upgrade path to add feeders or operate inline to your printer.

PowerSquare Two-­Knife Trimmer

The PowerSquare Two-­Knife Trimmer (P2T) is a compact module that completes the booklet making process by trimming the top and bottom edges of the book. It provides a professional solution for full-­bleed printed work, especially important for colour printed applications.

Fully automated from the PowerSquare’s user interface, up to 40mm can be trimmed from each end of the book, and the trim position can be offset to match the image position. All trimmings are transported outside the machine to a high capacity external waste box, allowing continuous operation.
