Muller Martini's Orbit Three Knife Trimmer performs complete changeovers in three minutes

Press release from the issuing company

The latest addition to Muller Martini's family of three knife trimmers will be up-and-running during Graph Expo.  Suited for the mid-to-high performance range, the revolutionary Orbit Three Knife Trimmer features full automation and the ability to trim up to 80 mm at 7,200 cph.  Perhaps, most importantly, it does complete changeovers in only three minutes.  That's due in part to the fact that the Orbit's settings can be optimized as the machine is running, so that the required quality and productivity can be achieved in the shortest possible time.

Graph Expo attendees can come to Muller's Booth #637 to examine first-hand the Orbit's highly durable, single cast design.  They'll also have a unique opportunity to see how the Orbit Three Knife Trimmer tackles even the most stringent quality demands.  Muller product specialists will demonstrate how the Orbit's settings can be optimized on the fly making it possible to achieve top quality and high net output – within the shortest possible time.

Other Orbit performance features on display at Graph will include:

- SmartPress.  This proprietary, servo-drive technology provides for a gentle, controlled pressing process in which air between the paper fully escapes from the product.  This results in the optimal precondition for perfect trim and ultimately prevents costly line stoppages.

- Swing cut.  The Orbit's transport, pressing and cutting units are driven independently of each other.  This helps assure the optimal trimming speed regardless of the machine's cycle time.

- User-friendly operation.  The Orbit features clearly arranged, intuitive controls which allow the operator to quickly prepare for the next job while the current job is still running.

In particular, perfect bound book manufacturers looking to lower expenses while still achieving a high-quality product should make a point to visit Muller Martini Booth #637 at Graph to witness what the Orbit does best: rapid set-ups and high net output.

Graph Expo takes place October 3-6, 2010 at McCormick Place South in Chicago, Illinois.  Muller Martini engineers and experts will be on hand at Booth #637 to provide insight and ideas about how Muller's innovative technology and workflow solutions can help printers and binderies grow their businesses.
