Muller Martini introduces new electronic book measuring station for Acoro perfect binders
Press release from the issuing company
Hauppauge, New York – The bottom line benefits for book binding companies can be substantial, both in terms of time savings and also in cost reductions. Muller Martini has introduced a new and highly advanced automated book measuring device for use with Acoro A5 and Acoro A7 bookbinding systems.
The versatile new electronic measuring station is available as optional equipment when Muller Martini customers order new Acoro perfect binding systems. The new measuring station can also be installed on existing Acoro systems that are already in service at customer locations.
“In the perfect binding business, enhancing your profits is a direct result of the level of efficiency you can bring to your operation,” said Werner Naegeli, President and CEO of Muller Martini Corp. “Book binders will immediately gain noticeable improvements to productivity by integrating our new and technologically-superior measuring attachment for automatically recording data.”
Muller Martini Acoro perfect binders are currently equipped with a mechanical book measuring device – requiring the operator to measure books first to obtain the applicable data and then enter the data manually. Now, with the availability of the new electronic station, the operator will be able to more easily and more rapidly define the measurements needed for setup by utilizing the new station’s automated capabilities. Data can still be instantly retrieved and revised for changeovers.
Besides simplifying and speeding both setup and changeover, the risk of inputting inaccurate data is all but eliminated with the new measuring device because calculations are processed and transferred electronically direct from the device to the Acoro’s Commander control system. However if needed, book data can still be entered manually and electronically-measured data can be overwritten.
Muller Martini’s compact, cost-effective new electronic book measuring station can be conveniently placed on a specially designed table or bench within close proximity of the Acoro perfect binder.
The new measuring station can also handle a wide range of perfect binding needs, offering the ability to measure book blocks and covers.
