Connecticut Valley Bindery widens growth potential with installation of Muller Martini Bolero perfect binder

Press release from the issuing company

New Britain, Connecticut – “We anticipate adding more clients, as well as different types of clients,” says Kevin Hubert, Vice President of Sales for Connecticut Valley Bindery in explaining how the Muller Martini Bolero perfect binding system is expected to increase business growth opportunities for his company. The new Bolero is scheduled for installation at Connecticut Valley Bindery in September, 2006. The Bolero, which runs at speeds up to 8,000 cycles per hour, processes the industry’s largest range of product sizes. Furthermore, Bolero offers the most production options, whether the job calls for hot melt, or PUR...in perfect bound and book blocks for casing-in. Connecticut Valley Bindery handles an extensive array of different products, including annual reports, magazines, periodicals, scholastic books, catalogs for colleges and universities, children’s books, and many others. “With the Bolero, we’ll be able to produce larger runs and the PUR capabilities will allow us to bring more high-end jobs into our business,” continues Mr. Hubert. In addition to its production versatility, the Muller Martini Bolero perfect binder delivers increased productivity and labor-saving efficiency to binding operations. The Bolero is the most automated and advanced adhesive binding system in the world, with the ability to perform its own make-ready. Bolero utilizes a JDF/JMF-ready digital interface and features fully automated operation across the entire size range. With Bolero, bookbinding jobs are prepared 100-percent from digital data – either from the intuitive, user-friendly touchscreen, the optional measuring station, or via JDF files. Computer-assisted make-ready enables the shortest set-up times of any adhesive binding system. On the fly adjustments allow optimization and adjustment without stopping production. And, job recall makes repetitive book production fast and convenient. Besides the state-of-the-art performance, another reason why Connecticut Valley Bindery chose the Bolero is the high level of confidence they have with Muller Martini, the global leader in innovative adhesive binding solutions. “We’ve had a 25-year relationship with Muller Martini and we feel comfortable about their service and the availability of parts when needed,” explains Kevin Hubert.
