Press release from the issuing company

October 4, 2007 -- Muller Martini will again show the industry why the company is the world leader in print finishing innovation during a special open house to be held at MBO America in Westhampton, New Jersey.  The event, appropriately entitled "Innovation Days," will highlight the newest advancements in digital manufacturing, focusing on OnDemand perfect binding production, customized brochure finishing, transactional printing and finishing, state-of-the-art mailing solutions and technology for targeting future markets.
During the open house, Muller Martini will partner with Delphax Technologies to present live equipment demonstrations featuring an in-line digital printing and OnDemand book manufacturing system consisting of a Delphax digital printer along with a SigmaBinder perfect binder, SigmaTower cooling tower and SigmaTrimmer three-knife trimmer.  Also highlighted at "Innovation Days" will be demonstrations of the Muller Martini BravoPlus saddle stitcher with partial AMRYS (Automatic Make-Ready System). 
"This is an important event that growth-minded printing and binding operations will not want to miss," said Werner Naegeli, President and CEO of Muller Martini Corp.  "In addition to viewing exciting demonstrations of how a collaboration of technologies between leading-edge digital equipment suppliers can result in faster, more cost-effective and more profitable production, attendees will also gain vital insights from knowledgeable experts who will discuss operation-specific solutions that can help printers and binders better serve their existing customers while generating many opportunities for new sales and profits."
Scaleable and modular SigmaLine OnDemand technology gives operations the ability to digitally manufacture books in a very economical and productive way...make-ready free...and yet achieve the quality of commercial systems which can take hours to make-ready.  Furthermore, SigmaLine provides the flexibility to deliver in-line digital book manufacturing efficiencies with a complete in line system, plus, near-line capability at the same time.  Besides the SigmaBinder, SigmaTower and SigmaTrimmer to be shown at this event, the Muller Martini SigmaLine also offers the expansion capability to add continuous-feed printing, folding, collating and finishing.
The 13,000 cycle-per-hour Muller Martini BravoPlus stitcher with partial AMRYS provides a level of automation that is unmatched in the mid-performance class, reducing set-up times by up to 50% compared to a traditional saddle stitcher.  The BravoPlus stitcher can be configured with a choice of feeder possibilities, including: flat pile feeder, vertical pile feeder, loading automation with stream feeder, card and cover folder feeder, and merchandise and card gluers.  Feeders on the BravoPlus have been re-designed to allow highly efficient advance and retard timing of each individual feeder to the chain with a touch of a button.  Top-quality stitching on the BravoPlus is assured through several available options, including ASIR (optical automatic signature image recognition), lateral thickness measurement by side caliper, oblique sheet monitor, thickness measurement by ridge caliper, stitch monitor, trim monitor, and sequential on/off.
"Innovation Days" will take place November 7-9 (Wednesday-Friday), 2007 from 10am -- 6pm.  MBO America has hosted or co-hosted an annual open house for nearly a decade, offering the advantages of a smaller, more personalized venue and bringing the benefits of individualized attention to businesses large and small.  In addition to Muller Martini and Delphax Technologies, this year's event will feature a diverse range of other industry-leading exhibitors including Buskro, Baumer hhs, Bograma, Colter + Peterson, Ehret, H&H, HP, KBA, Lake Image Systems, Longford, Océ, Palamides, Ricoh/IBM, Ryobi, Shinohara, Videojet and York Label Label-aire.
