Booklet Making System Description

The SpeedVAC is not only the most reliable vacuum-feed system on the market, it’s far and away the most productive. For example, 20 sheets can be collated at over 5,000 sets per hour. Dual direction feeding allows the SpeedVAC to run simultaneously in both directions.VAC-100 towers can be combined with the full range of Standard Horizon SPF/FC Series stitching, folding and face trimming units to form an ultra-reliable, highly-productive saddle stitching system.

Advanced Programming

The VAC-100 is equipped with powerful, easy-to-use programming functions that allow truly continuous production. These programs can be operated independently or together, for top productivity and performance.


In Divide-By-Two mode, the number of stations you have are divided by two. You load the first section, start production, then load the second section. When any one station empties, the system automatically switches over to the second section, allowing you to reload the first section.

Dual Cover Insertion

In Dual Cover Insertion mode, the top two stations are prepared for feeding heavy-weight covers. When one cover station empties, the VAC-100 automatically switches over to the other cover station. This eliminates the need to halt production to reload covers.

Job Memory Settings

The VAC-100 can memorize up to 9 different jobs that are run frequently. For example, collating speed, type of program used, number of bins used, and sensor sensitivity settings are stored in the system memory for quick restart of a regular job.

User-Friendly Touch-Screen Control Console And Remote Control

The VAC-100 is equipped with a touch-screen display panel that is extremely easy to use. The graphical interface allows anyone in your production area to operate the VAC-100 Collator, without any special skills or training.

Revolutionary Feed System

The heart of the SpeedVAC system is the VAC-100’s patented rotary vacuum-pulse feeding system, that provides super-reliable feeding on nearly all paper stocks. This innovative feed system requires virtually no adjustment when changing stocks.
