Muller Martini to Demonstrate Primera E140 at Graph Expo
HAUPPAUGE, NY—8-19-08—At the recent drupa event in Europe, a worldwide audience was impressed by the leading-edge engineering and versatile capabilities of Muller Martini’s all-new Primera saddle stitcher line.
Soon, the North American graphic arts industry will witness the excitement surrounding innovative Primera stitchers. During Graph Expo 08, visitors to the Muller Martini booth, #3822, will get a look at this latest advancement in saddle stitchers as the company will feature live demonstrations of the Primera E140 machine equipped with full automation.
“Our customers’ product mix has changed over the years, and Muller Martini saw the need for a new generation of saddle stitching technology designed to address those changes and create extensive growth and profit opportunities for printers and binderies,” said Doug Stryker, Muller Martini Division Manager, Print Finishing Systems.
Today’s print production operations are producing a wider array of products and many of those products – involving such challenges as smaller sizes, thinner and lighter-weight stocks and perforations – are presenting challenges for operations who are still using older saddle stitching equipment. “Muller Martini engineers, as they have done so many times before in setting new productivity benchmarks, recognized the need for more efficient handling of signatures and as a result, we designed revolutionary new feeders for our Primera saddle stitchers that will enable our customers to produce a larger variety of products in the fastest and most profitable way possible,” continued Stryker.
At the heart of what makes the feeders on the new Primera stitching line so special is Muller Martini’s “Magic Wheel” feeder technology, engineered to hold signature tolerances with much better control as well as provide easy inline adjustments and virtually eliminate costly line stoppages. Also key is the fact that small and large size kits are built into the feeder design, allowing a broader size range of products to be stitched without adding optional attachments.
