drupa Serves as the Perfect Platform for Muller Martini’s End-to-End InnovationsMay 30, 2012
In addition, Muller Martini showcased new innovations for conventional and one-off hardcover book production on its Diamant MC Hybrid. For photo book production, Muller demonstrated several innovations that increase the operating productivity of the line, including a near-line case scanner that automatically scans batches of cases and a sequencing system at the infeed that reorders out-of-sequence book blocks.
Muller Martini introduced the new generation VSOP web offset printing press developed for printing labels, flexible packaging and folding carton products. Boasting a decade of proven technological success, the new VSOP Press not only comes with a fresh new laser blue color standard in the Muller Martini platform, but numerous functionality and operational advancements including a new ergonomic construction which enables easier machine access for sleeve changes and daily operation, as well as an innovative electronic control technology which utilizes fewer components resulting in greater machine reliability. In addition, the VSOP’s modular design philosophy enables flexible machine configurations for a wide range of hybrid packaging printing options.
Saddle Stitcher Solutions
drupa attendees were enthusiastically optimistic regarding investing in the near future in adding or replacing saddle stitching machines. There was sustained interest from attendees viewing the Primera E160 (16,000 c/hr) saddle stitcher running in-line with strategic partner Sitma’s inserting and wrapping machines. In addition, the entry level stitching solution was presented via the improved Presto featuring many of the benefits usually only found on high end stitchers.
