At Print 05, Muller Martini to introduce Bolero 3028
Press release from the issuing company
Hauppauge, New York – Muller Martini will present the official demonstration debut of the new Bolero model 3028 perfect binder during Print ’05, September 9-15, 2005 in Chicago, Illinois. Complementing the Bolero demonstration, the company will show an entire line of other book binding technologies including the newest gathering machine, stream feeder, trimmers and stackers.
The highly advanced Bolero 3028 perfect binding system, which runs at 8,000 cycles per hour, can actually perform its own makeready, providing the highest levels of automation that Muller Martini has ever offered in a perfect binder.
“Our exciting new Bolero 3028 can dramatically reduce set-up times, lower labor costs and enable a broad variety of different jobs and run lengths to be substantially more profitable for printers and binderies,” says Werner Naegeli, President and CEO of Muller Martini Corp. “We invite Print ’05 attendees to visit our booth, #4018, and see this incredible new perfect binding system in action.”
The Bolero 3028 utilizes a CIP4 and JDF-ready digital interface and features fully automated operation across the entire size range for maximum productivity. A book measuring device can also be installed for automatic data transfer of measuring specifications. The new Bolero enables bookbinding jobs to be prepared 100% from digital data, either from its user-friendly touchscreen, the optional measuring station, or via JDF.
Due to a high performance motorized makeready system that takes full advantage of AMRYS (Automatic MakeReady System) capabilities, set-up times on the Bolero 3028 are the shortest of any perfect binding system in the world. Furthermore, operators can set up all size and thickness parameters conveniently from a single control station. With Bolero, a comprehensive array of runs, both long and short, are very cost-effective. In addition, on-the-fly adjustments reduce waste, while job recall makes production of repetitive book binding jobs extremely fast and efficient.
The Bolero 3028 perfect binder can handle the industry’s most diverse product sizes for 1-up and 2-up production, and it also offers the widest product range regardless of whether the job calls for hot melt, cold glue or PUR in perfect bound, layflat or book blocks for casing-in.
Binding quality on the Bolero is impeccable, and the machine boasts unique cross brushing action to ensure excellent spine preparation. Other important benefits include: shallow infeed angle of 12.5 degrees; parallel-closing rack and pinion clamp design; quick lowering feature on the milling station for rapid changeover to and from sewn products; eccentric pressing discs for precision cut-off control; and optimized exhaust to keep the machine and the glue pots clean.
Visitors to Print ’05 are urged to stop by the Muller Martini exhibit (booth #4018, McCormick Place South Building) and view a live demonstration of the new Bolero 3028 along with other state-of-the-art book binding technologies. Muller Martini experts will also be available throughout the show to discuss how the company’s many print finishing solutions can enhance sales growth, increase productivity and build profit potential specific to the objectives of printers, binderies and other graphic arts businesses.
Print ’05 is the world’s largest exhibition of equipment, supplies and services for commercial printing, package printing and converting. Print ’05 takes place from September 9-15, 2005 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.
