Cadmus Cenveo is Running World’s Longest PrimaPlus SB AMRYS Selective Binding Line
In addition, according to Dan Rodriguez, the new saddle stitcher is easy to operate: “Five machine operators spent a week at a course in Muller Martini’s Training Center in Switzerland. After that, they quickly had the machine under control. We are therefore satisfied with the new line in every aspect.”
Adjusting the Entire Press Delivery System Fully-Automatically with AMRYS
A few months after installing the PrimaPlus SB, Cadmus Cenveo also installed a new AvantiPlus bundle stacker in Easton, Pennsylvania – along with a Forte compensating stacker and 443 palletizing system. It’s not only the first Muller Martini bundle stacker in this plant, but it’s also the first with the horizontal design concept. “After we commissioned our new Goss press, which prints 55,000 copies per hour, we needed a new bundle stacker and looked at systems from six different suppliers,” says Plant Manager Frank Donnelly. “The AvantiPlus, with its exceptional bundle quality and its high degree of automation, impressed us the most.”
Cadmus Cenveo also relies on two new AvantiPlus – with Forte compensating stackers, 443 palletizing system as well as Floorveyor and Topveyor transporting systems – at its headquarters in Richmond, Virginia. This is the first fully AMRYS-integrated press delivery system in the world. With the exception of the air, all parameters of the bundle stackers, compensating stackers, palletizers and conveyors relating to size changes are adjusted fully automatically-controlled via the Macos system developed by Muller Martini.
Plant Manager John Leuth is enthusiastic about the new solution: “Thanks to the high bundle quality, we’ve been able to increase production speed on the Corona C18 from 11,000 to 16,000 cycles per hour.” In addition to the high performance perfect binder, three other Muller Martini systems are loaded with bundles from the AvantiPlus in the Cadmus Cenveo plant in Richmond: a Normbinder softcover line as well as two saddle stitchers, models 300 and 301.This summer, two new Muller Martini perfect binders will begin operation at Cadmus Cenveo. Of particular note is the fact that only a short time after acquiring Cadmus at the end of 2006, the new owner Cenveo ordered two Boleros for the Easton, Maryland and Lancaster, Pennsylvania plants – proof positive that the new parent company also has full confidence in Muller Martini’s solutions.
