Muller Martini’s Zero Makeready SigmaTrimming Center to Run Live at GRAPH EXPO

HAUPPAUGE, NY—July 25, 2012—For those interested in an ultra-efficient book trimming solution, a visit to Muller Martini’s Booth #2017 during GRAPH EXPO 2012 will be time well spent. Performing live will be the world’s first zero makeready three-knife trimmer.

The SigmaTrimming Center is designed for commercial-quality finishing of books produced via both offset and digital printing in a one-off, short- or long-run workflow. It is the proven fully automated, true one-off three-knife trimmer available in today’s market. The trimming system also boasts zero makeready, enabling highly efficient one-off book production.

Visitors to the Muller booth can get an up-close look at a variety of the SigmaTrimming Center’s powerful capabilities and features, including:

  • Industry-first zero makeready, which delivers true 1,000 fully variable books per hour.
  • Infinite trim variability within the machine specifications easily accommodates non-standard trim sizes.
  • Barcode technology enables real-time error-free data input and machine set-up, minimizing production delays.
  • A fixed-position knife station design with limited moving parts helps eliminate wear and provides high-end commercial-trim quality.

In particular, bindery professionals whose books are being trimmed on multiple inline trimmers, nearline trimmers or flatbed cutters should plan a visit to the Muller booth to get a firsthand look at how this inefficient workflow can be consolidated and effectively processed through the SigmaTrimming Center—without any additional production planning effort and with considerable labor savings.

As part of a special promotion, visitors will be invited to “trim your own book,” whereby they can actually “take the controls” of the SigmaTrimming Center and trim a book of their choosing—while experiencing just how easy and fast one-off digital book production can be.

The SigmaTrimming Center is part of Muller Martini’s fully scalable SigmaLine technology, the world’s first commercial-quality and totally modular digital book manufacturing system. Scalable SigmaLine was honored with a “Must See ‘Em” award at an earlier Graph Expo.
