Muller Martini introduces Pantera perfect binder to the American marketplace

Friday, March 31, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

Hauppauge, New York – Muller Martini will unveil a new addition to its growing line of adhesive binding systems, demonstrating the Pantera perfect binder during an Open House to be held at the company’s Long Island (New York) headquarters in September 2006. The event will mark the official release of the Pantera to the North American market. In addition, Muller Martini will feature the new Pantera at the Graph Expo show, to be held October 15-18, 2006 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. The Pantera perfect binder runs at up to 4,000 cycles per hour. In addition to conventional hotmelt binding, Pantera can also process PUR Adhesive (polyurethane reactive). The use of PUR is becoming an increasingly popular method of perfect binding, due to high pull-resistance values and exceptional layflat characteristics. Pantera, which features a compact space-saving design, can handle a broad array of different size jobs and can be configured with up to 28 feeder stations. Pantera can also be equipped with a drum cover feeder and an optional crash feeder station for hard cover book production. High binding quality on the Pantera is ensured through advanced technology in the backbone preparation and glue application area as well as the advanced nipping station, which provides a sharp and square back of the finished book. The Pantera perfect binder is specifically designed for fast and convenient set-up via its interactive Set-up Assistant Companion and an intuitively-designed touchscreen monitor. Settings and specs for all stations are displayed for the current production, plus, data for repeat jobs can be saved and re-loaded virtually with the touch of a button. The Set-up Assistant Companion also monitors various elements such as the glue pot and spinner temperature, glue level and provides automatic glue length control for spine and side gluing. Pantera can be optionally equipped with AMRYS (Automatic Make-Ready System) technology, further shortening make-ready times. “Pantera has been engineered with versatility in mind...providing binderies, printers, in-house operations and many other businesses with the technology to produce a diverse range of top quality perfect-bound products quickly and cost efficiently,” said Werner Naegeli, President and CEO of Muller Martini Corp. “We feel it will be beneficial to all kinds of operations throughout the industry to attend our Open House in September and see for themselves the impressive features and added value that the new Pantera perfect binding system can deliver.”
