PerformancePlus stitching heads are designed specifically for Muller Martini machines

Press release from the issuing company

September 18, 2007 -- Hauppauge, New York – Muller Martini, the global leader in print finishing, recommends a specific line of replacement heads to ensure optimal performance and deliver significant cost savings in the company’s saddle stitchers.  PerformancePlus stitching heads are engineered specifically for Muller Martini stitchers, helping to maximize the production capabilities, reliability and operational productivity that Muller stitching equipment is known throughout the industry for.
“Printers and binders all over the world have invested in and depend on the top quality of Muller Martini saddle stitchers...and they expect an uncompromised level of performance from our stitching technologies,” said Werner Naegeli, President and CEO of Muller Martini Corp.  “That same level of quality is brought to replacement stitching heads by PerformancePlus, the only stitching heads we recommend for use in our machines.”
PerformancePlus stitching heads feature a patent pending wire cutting system allowing thinner wire for thick products, as well as reduced crown width, that combine to offer a minimum 30% reduction in wire consumption based on weight.
Furthermore, because the wire is fed via an external feed unit, operation is easier and the stitcher head can be completely disassembled in minutes – this, in combination with proven, lowest maintenance intervals in a high speed environment, reduces labor and increases overall productivity.  PerformancePlus stitching heads are also smaller, 1.58” (40mm) center to center distance (the smallest available), and only one type head is needed for small booklets to the thickest products.
Other features of PerformancePlus stitching heads include:
- An electronic wire feed unit that can be mounted remotely or next to the stitcher heads
- Push button wire length accuracy within .004”
- Simple push button threading
- Tool-less leg length adjustment
- Patent pending wear-proof frame design.
