Muller Martini Vivo stacker ensures superior log quality, and now features newly optimized cycle time

Press release from the issuing company

Hauppauge, New York - Among the essential elements in achieving maximum speed and productivity during press delivery is the ability of a bundler to maintain perfect logs. The Vivo automatic bundle stacker from Muller Martini tightly controls the continuous conditioning of signatures, reducing downtime and waste while boosting throughput at all performance levels. Vivo bundle stacker was introduced to the marketplace within the past year and a half, and it now features newly improved single strapping cycle time that has been optimized from 60 seconds per bundle to 50 seconds. Users who tested the systems from Muller Martini actually bought the equipment and in several installations ordered multiple units based on the exceptional results in the press room and proven increase in throughput in the bindery. The reference list is growing in the North America (In the last 15 months, 9 Vivo and 10 Avanti horizontal bundlers have been purchased) and demos can be arranged at these installations for interested printers. Vivo is a versatile bundle stacker engineered for use with web presses producing jobs from 8 to 32 pages. Virtually every type of paper stock (including "airy" signatures) can be processed easily into bundles of up to 47 inches in length, allowing full utilization of pallet capacity. Furthermore, all production parameters, such as signature format and strapping position, can be entered and stored using Vivo's innovative job management system. Parameters can then be recalled immediately at any time with the touch of a button, enabling the fastest changeovers possible for repeat jobs. Another key benefit of the Vivo stacker is its compact size: Vivo has the smallest floor space requirement in its class. The Vivo bundle stacker is just one component in the comprehensive line of fully automated Muller Martini press delivery solutions. The company offers a complete range of innovative machines, each designed to match press speed...including floor and overhead conveyors, rotary trimmers, palletizers, and PrintRoll systems, as well as the proprietary JDF-, JMF- and CIP4-compatible MACOS Master Control System which provides single-station control over the entire press delivery configuration. Muller Martini's highly flexible press delivery technologies can be designed, built and installed to meet the unique production needs and strategies of any operation.
