Introducing Vareo, Muller Martini’s all-new entry-level perfect binder

Friday, April 17, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

The Vareo efficiently processes medium runs down to books of one with the highest quality of any perfect binder in its class.

As print runs become smaller and smaller, the Vareo is a groundbreaking solution to today’s evolving production demands. It has an excellent price-performance ratio and is the ideal machine for binderies and printers that need to improve the efficiency and versatility of their perfect binding operations. With speeds up to 1,350 cycles per hour and with extremely short set-up times, the Vareo cost-effectively produces a full range of products, including photo books, personalized catalogs, high-quality brochures, etc., with the very first book being sellable.

In addition, the Vareo is the first perfect binder where each of the three clamps is equipped with its own servo motor, so they function independently of one another. That means that each processing station can be individually adjusted to each product to ensure optimal quality and the highest productivity. For instance, books constructed of different materials can spend the appropriate amount of time in the nipping/pressing station without impacting overall production speeds.

The Vareo’s other advantages include:

  • Automatic Book Block Feeder. The optional automated book block infeed with integrated book measuring and barcode scanning allows for offline, near-line or in-line book production. This provides any size printing operation the flexibility to configure their workflow to meet labor and productivity requirements.
  • Barcode recognition. The Vareo can be equipped with an integrated barcode recognition system to ensure that the content and cover match, guaranteeing the integrity of the end product.
  • Wide format range. The Vareo’s impressive format versatility allows for the processing of a broad range of products (e.g., book thickness from 1/16” up to 2.36”).
  • Exchangeable glue application systems. Standard options for the gluing systems include an EVA hotmelt roller glue pot, a PUR roller pot or a PUR nozzle system. If switching between different adhesives is required, there is an option to mount the glue systems on a trolley, so that they can be quickly and easily exchanged during production.
  • Optional crash feeder. A gauzing station can be integrated for the production of layflat books or book blocks for hardcover production.
  • Ease of operation. An intuitive set-up wizard leads the machine operator step by step through the process of creating a new job.

What’s more, the highly versatile Vareo processes medium runs, short-runs or runs of one with the highest quality, regardless of whether products are produced using offset or digital printing. And, like many machines in the Muller family, the Vareo features a modular design, allowing it to be easily extended and adapted to meet future production requirements, thereby providing a high degree of investment protection.
