Tolerans launches CompactStitch - a new in-line stitching system
CompactStitch is an affordable in-line ribbon stitching system specifically designed for printing operations that haven't had the possibility to incorporate in-line stitching before. It's compact in size, extremeley easy to use, and the low investment ensures a fast return on investment.
Swedish manufacturer Tolerans is the world leader in in-line stitching. The company’s advanced SPEEDLINER series of stitchers has become the most reliable, advanced and sold in-line stitchers in the world.
- “Being the most innovative stitching company in the world means listening closely to the market and we have noticed an increased demand for in-line stitchers for certain presses where there hasn’t been enough space for a traditional stitcher and where only basic functionality is needed.” says Jan Melin, CEO at Tolerans.
- “We are proud to have developed CompactStitch, a stitching solution with basic functionality which makes it an affordable solution for printing operations that haven’t had the possibility to incorporate in-line stitching before,” continues Jan Melin.
The ribbon stitcher is only half the size of a traditional stitcher making it easier to install with little or no press modifications needed. It’s placed under the former board and cross-web stitches up 60,000 copies per hour. The system is perfect for stitching newspapers, inserts and commercial print. The low weight, only 45 kilos, makes removing the machine for service and maintenance simpler.
The stitcher is equipped with an easy to use control system. The compact touch screen is only 100 x 80 mm from where you manage basic functionalities such as on/off, wire on/off and circumferential adjustment. It includes a counter and has an alarm indication with error codes.
Although CompactStitch is designed with basic functionality it uses the same proven technology as Tolerans’ highly advanced SPEEDLINER stitching systems, ensuring a worry-free stitching process.
