Muller Martini Introduces Array of New Products, Services for Book Industry
Besides its high productivity, the Primera 160 also sets itself apart through its flexible production capabilities: products in the A7 to A3 size range can be produced in a range of customized variations, even in two-up or three-up production. "In this performance range, we have found that our customers' orders are becomingly increasingly complex and the product make-up ever more extensive. Therefore, feeder reconfiguration on the new Primera 160 is even quicker and simpler to accommodate individual jobs," says Mr. Stirnimann.
A versatile conversion trolley means that folder feeders, signature feeders and merchandise tippers are incredibly easy to transfer so the machine can be prepared for the new job. The new 0382 mobile merchandise tipper increases the number of product make-up variations; it can be quickly inserted into any position without much extra work to produce cards, merchandise samples and CDs
A comprehensive process monitoring system is vital when it comes to achieving high net outputs, which is why the Primera 160 offers extensive quality checks to ensure impeccable stitching quality, complete products and considerably less production waste. The new Smart Stitch Control staple control not only checks whether staples are present, but also that they are the correct shape.
Thanks to the Connex workflow system from Muller Martini, the Primera 160 is quick to integrate into the digital workflow, and the new Connex information system logs the current production data and displays it on a desktop or large screen.
