GOA: Muller Martini shows how stitching & perfect binding can build new business

Press release from the issuing company

Miami Beach, Florida — Printers who are searching for new customers need look no farther than booth #787 at the Graphics of the Americas show. Muller Martini, the world’s largest manufacturer of finishing equipment, is exhibiting its Valore saddle stitcher and its AmigoPlus perfect binder with the focus on how these affordable systems can build business for the printers and binderies that install them. Valore is a 6,000 copies/hour saddle stitcher that delivers a host of automated advantages at an affordable price. Its features include: - Flat pile feeders that load easily and run continuously. - The ability to produce a variety of formats and printed products. - A cover folder feeder that makes book production a one-pass operation. - Flying stitching heads for tight and precise stitches. - Programmable Logic Control (PLC) that guides operators through set-up and provides real-time trouble shooting advice. - The ability to produce high quality books — tightly compressed and trimmed on three sides. The AmigoPlus is a 1,500 copies/hour perfect binding system designed for short-run commercial bookbinding, sample production and books-on-demand. Like the Volare, it packs a long list of features into an affordable, compact finishing system: - Can be run by a single operator to keep costs down. - Bottom feeding cover feeder with four-line scoring delivers crisp results. - Precise glue application and true side gluing produces durable products. - Exclusive backbone preparation tools assure unsurpassed strength of the book even when running coated stock and heavy ink coverage. Short run bookbinding operations can now compete with quality previously only achieved on big perfect binders. - Heavy-duty nipping results in tight, square backbones. - PLC system simplifies set-up and streamlines production. The Valore and AmigoPlus systems at Graphics of the Americas will be producing finished products at their top operating speeds. The demonstrations will center on how quickly and easily both machines can go from one short-run job to another, reducing costs and improving profit margins. "Our bottom-line message is that when you install either a Valore or an AmigoPlus, you’ve just extended the range of services you can offer your prospects and customers," said Werner Naegeli, President and CEO of Muller Martini Corp. "And that will give you a brand new way to go after new business, better than any other investment can." Graphics of the Americas runs from January 24-26 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
