  1. Transport Conveyor Flites:

Promotional printing present The Col-Tec Signature collator and targeted at companies seeking a cost-effective automatic gatherer with quick setup times. It serves as an ideal primary collator or as an addition to existing perfect binding lines that are either fully occupied or too slow to change over. This makes the Col-Tec Signature collator a competitive option in a market typically dominated by larger, more expensive, and operator-intensive equipment.

By offering a machine that is easy to set up and operate, Col-Tec aims to provide a solution for businesses looking to enhance their production capabilities without significant investment in more complex systems.



A "6 Station" collator has six feeding stations, meaning it can handle up to six different stacks of pages or signatures (groups of pages) at once. The term "signature" in printing refers to a group of pages that are printed on a single sheet of paper, which is then folded, trimmed, and bound together with other signatures to create a complete book or booklet.


The Col-Tec 6 Station Signature collator is used in the following process:


  1. Loading: Operators load stacks of printed sheets into each of the six stations.
  2. Collating: The machine sequentially picks sheets from each station to compile them into sets.
  3. Output: The collated sets are then collected for further processing, such as folding, stitching, or binding.
