Leading commercial printer installs Transpak strapping system from Muller Martini

Thursday, January 28, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

In Spring 2009, Trend Offset Printing, one of North America's leading full-service commercial printers, installed Muller Martini's new Transpak Strapping System, specifically the TP-701NT model.  Trend Offset, whose clients include some of the world's most recognized brands, specializes in web offset printing of publications, magazines, catalogs, newspaper inserts and direct mailers – making it a likely choice to challenge the overall effectiveness of the strapping machine.

The TP-701NT features an innovative and unique one-piece arch strap design which alleviates jams.  Moreover, the strapper contains 30% fewer parts than comparable machines, so it requires less maintenance, fewer adjustments and fewer wear components.  Plus, this particular model operates at higher cycle speeds.  Other benefits of the strapper include:

- Compact mechanical control head which provides an optimum level of accuracy
- Waist-high auto strap feeding for user-friendly operation
- Adjustable bundle stops that allow the machine to be easily adjusted for various bundle lengths
- Safety guards designed for maximum operator protection
- Handles up to 30 bundles per minute
- Seimens PLC control touch panel that allows for easy troubleshooting

Since installation, the Transpak TP-701NT has been running at full production.  And, it's performed as promised.  Explained Ernie Skillern, Bindery/Mailing Manager, "Transpak's ease and stability made it a great fit for our equipment.  Best of all, the TP-701NT decreased the make-ready time for our auxiliary equipment.  That's because the TP-701NT's durability and productivity has increased production and decreased downtime."

Muller Martini is the exclusive U.S. distributor to the Graphic Arts Industry of Transpak Strapping Machines, world leaders in strapping technology.  Muller Martini's recent entrance into the Strapper market is welcomed indeed.  Commented Mr. Skillern with regard to why Trend Offset Printing chose the Transpak Strapper TP-701NT:  "First and foremost was the reputation and history of Muller Martini products.  We run 95% Muller Martini equipment in our bindery.  That coupled with Muller's excellent, state-of-the-art training programs and continued technological innovations has produced a very strong partnership with Trend Offset Printing.  Moreover, Muller Martini's customer service is second to none."

Transpak Strapping Machines from Muller Martini are highly economical, easy to maintain and are designed for both small and mid-sized newspapers and commercial print shops.  The machines are fully supported by Muller Martini's unparalleled nationwide service team of trained engineers.  Muller also provides competitively priced strapping material.
