Corporate Graphics Commercial automates with a BravoPlus with AMRYS

Friday, February 07, 2003

North Mankato, Minnesota — One of Minnesota’s leading commercial printers — Corporate Graphics Commercial, a division of Taylor Corporation — has become one of the first facilities in the U.S. to produce saddle stitched books with the new BravoPlus with AMRYS from Muller Martini. Introduced to the North American market at Graph Expo last autumn, BravoPlus is mid-level saddle stitching system that can produce up to 13,000 copies per hour. Its AMRYS (Automatic MakeReadY System) option automates virtually every setting on the machine to accelerate changeover between jobs. The advancement received a 2002 InterTech Award from GATF. BravoPlus’s touchscreen display and low silhouette equips its operator to view and control the entire production process in real time. Quality control devices are strategically placed throughout the system to monitor the construction of every book. That results in more satisfied customers and less wasted signatures.
