Press release from the issuing company

The Primera Control System Guarantee High-Quality Print Products

Delivering the highest quality is one of the top priorities at W. Gassmann AG. With its numerous control systems, the Primera saddle stitcher from Muller Martini fulfills precisely this need. This is why the company located in Biel, Switzerland, invested in the latest generation of the Primera saddle stitcher. Thanks to high levels of productivity, tight customer deadlines can be met even better than before.

The Primera, equipped with state-of-the-art technology, will replace a Prima Amrys saddle stitcher from Muller Martini that has performed flawlessly at Gassmann for years. Innovation and the high level of satisfaction with the previous model were the main reasons why W. Gassmann AG once again chose Muller Martini, according to Head of Printing, Markus Schär. “Other important criteria included the high level of productivity and the good service provided by Muller Martini, and lastly the fact that we, as a Swiss company, prefer Swiss machine manufacturers.”

What is more, the Primera features numerous other control systems, such as Asir 3 image and signature control system, lateral thickness measurement, oblique sheet control, smart stitch control, motion control, copy control, double sheet control, and proof, limit and blade control. “This provides us with a higher level of reliability in the final processing of our print products,” says Schär. “In addition, we are able to meet tight customer deadlines even better than before, thanks to high levels of productivity.” The high level of automation on the Primera, which significantly reduces changeover times, is also in line with the trend towards smaller print runs and shorter processing times. The Primera also offers exciting expansion options that can be specifically adjusted to meet customer needs. 

The new saddle stitcher featuring six flat pile feeders, a folder feeder, a Robusto compensating stacker that can also sort products according to mailing routes, a turntable and a motorized pre-stacking belt, shingle delivery and an interface for downline machines such as inkjet addressing will be put into operation in a few weeks.
