To further realize the full benefits of automation, the Gunze LS-1120 comes equipped with on-board troubleshooting and diagnostics, including rigorous decision-tree troubleshooting guides, so that any downtime is minimized. The integrated maintenance schedules and maintenance logging help to assure maximum uptime, as well.
Of course, the heart of the stacker bundler is its ability to produces high quality bundles. In this department, the Gunze LS-1120 is second to none. The process flow of this machine accepts spine-leading signatures, presses and conditions them, counts with a laser sensor, and creates the gap in the signature stream with a unique gap-smoothing mechanism. Product is stacked with the spine down, so any laps are totally protected. The Gunze LS-1120 includes mechanisms to form the signatures, as they enter the stack, so even lightweight books can be uniformly controlled, such that the backbones are well aligned on the stacking belts.
Once the signature is in place, the speed control on the stacking belts maintains the uniform packing density to assure high quality signature alignment from the first to the last signature. Every set-up adjustment can be memorized for future job pre-sets.
The automatic end-board hopper holds approximately 62 inches (1,600 mm) and is easily loaded. The strapping head access and strap reel location is also conveniently placed so it is easy to access during the strapping cycle.
