Dome Printing to Speed Book Production with a new Muller Martini Corona

Tuesday, June 25, 2002

Press release from the issuing company

Sacramento, California -- June 25, 2002 -- Dome Printing will triple the speed of its soft cover book binding capabilities with the installation of a new Corona perfect binding system from Muller Martini. The 21-pocket Corona is scheduled to be installed this August. The system will feature advanced makeready, an operating speed of 12,000 cycles per hour, and the ability to utilize Polyurethane Reactive (PUR) glues. "We will now be able to provide PUR binding which utilizes a stronger, more durable glue," a company announcement stated. "This feature will be particularly important in producing lay flat books printed on coated papers." To keep quality consistent, Dome opted for an Automatic Signature Image Recognition system on its Corona. "With this device, the machine rejects any book that has an incorrect signature during the run," Dome declared. "Rather than stop the machine, the rejected book is kicked out at a reject station. This type of device not only enhances quality control but will greatly improve productivity."
