GAE has outlined its plans for Drupa with stand details of Horizon, Perfecta and Drselen, all of which are exhibiting at the event.

Horizon will be operating under the banner 'think intelligent automation' with its biggest-ever 1,200sqm stand.

The finishing kit manufacturer will give a world-first debut to its new long-edge feeding system which works on-line with the StitchLiner saddlestitcher. It claims it offers stable operation on awkward materials such as thinner stocks.

Horizon will also showcase 15 different folding systems including a new SR version of its B3 EF-35 series, which features combination steel and rubber compound rollers, two configurations of the new AF-406 pharmaceutical folder and a version of the automated AFC-744 B1 machine.

The company will also be showing three configurations of its JDF-ready automated SPF-200A stitch/fold/trim line as well as the latest version of the fully automated BQ-270 perfect binder with colour touchscreen and its four-clamp BQ-470jdf with PUR glue option.

Other equipment GAE supplies to the UK and Ireland that will be on show at Drupa includes Perfecta's range of guillotines.

On display will be the Perfecta 168L-TS 1680mm cut width high speed AutoCut guillotine. This features in-bed waste removal and a multifunctional unloader.

The manufacturer is also set to show kit such as its Perfecta 115TS 1150mm model complete with stack lift and jogger with scale counter and unloader.

The systems feature a 19in high-definition display which is claimed to integrate machine functions, cutting programs, malfunction data and graphic job displays.

Also exhibiting at Drupa is Dürselen and its range of paper drilling machines and automated paper drilling systems. The company will be showcasing its entry-level UD.04 four-head system and computer-controlled PB.10 on-demand system as well as a PB.15 high performance automated drilling system for standalone or in-line operation.

GAE will be present at each of the manufacturer's stands, which are exhibiting at Drupa. The exhibition takes place from 29 May to 11 June in Düsseldorf, Germany.
