Morgana and Multigraf Announce Technology Licensing Agreement
MILTON KEYNES, U.K.—Feb. 3, 2012—Morgana Systems, the UK’s leading manufacturer of equipment for digital finishing, is delighted to announce that it has withdrawn its patent infringement claims in Germany, and has licenced Multigraf AG, the Swiss based manufacturer of print finishing products, to use its patented technology.
Under the license agreement Multigraf will be able to use Morgana’s technology in its new creasing and folding products.
Morgana’s Managing Director, Quen Baum, and Robert Barrer, the Managing Director of Multigraf, jointly said that it was important for European manufacturers to share technologies in order to reduce the time and cost of bringing new products to the market.
They went on to say that it was also essential that European manufacturers focussed their efforts in stopping the influx of the low-quality unlicensed products which were beginning to be seen from China and other emerging markets.
Both companies stressed that they are committed to stop their technologies, patents and IP being blatantly copied by unscrupulous manufacturers and importers.
Beginning with the launch of the revolutionary AutoCreaser in 2000 Morgana Systems has led the way in developing new and innovative solutions to cope with the special requirements of the digital printer. UK-manufactured Morgana products that have achieved worldwide success during this time include the AutoCreaser, the DigiFold combination creaser and folder, the DocuMaster total finishing system, and several specialist folders, such as the DocuFold and Morgana Major, which offer new levels of automation and ease of use.
Morgana provides an unrivalled range of digital finishing products from the simplest, entry level creasing units up to highly sophisticated multi-functional systems offering a range of finishing capabilities in a single unit. Latest products from Morgana also incorporate JDF readiness and the ability to handle variable data input.
