‘Experience the Magic’ with Muller Martini
Today, the finishing of “print on paper” is more challenging than ever before. Smaller print quantities, often coupled with varying formats and content, are making the path to the finish line extraordinarily complex. The result? Workflow bottlenecks that can cause costly inefficiencies and decreasing profits.
Until now. Muller Martini’s (Booth 10543) Finishing 4.0 engineering provides an essential framework for achieving efficient end-to-end finishing of complex and highly variable print products, independent of whether those products have been printed traditionally, digitally, or in combination. Featuring zero makereadies, touchless workflow, seamless format variability, and the capability to efficiently process short runs (including runs of one), visitors to the booth will “experience the magic” with round-the-clock performances by:
Presto II Digital. The magic of this singular saddle stitching solution is that it accommodates digital, traditional, or hybrid products, delivering considerable production, labor, and workflow efficiencies. The Presto II can integrate roll or flat sheet printed digital material with conventionally printed signatures, while seamlessly processing products of any thickness, as well as highly personalized content.
Vareo. This in-demand perfect binder will demonstrate its finishing magic as it processes a broad range of both thin and thick products with quality equal to that produced by more expensive digital book manufacturing systems. The Vareo’s excellent price-performance ratio enables printers and binderies of all sizes to offer their customers print-on-demand, short-run batch and medium-run book production, including personalized catalogs, photo books, and brochures.
InfiniTrim. Prepare to be amazed by this three-knife-trimmer, whose revolutionary drive, transport, and trimming concept provides full-format variability — without operator intervention. It is ideal for both digital and offset printed products, and is the fastest, most productive, and most innovative three-knife trimmer available today.
Endsheet Feeder. This first-of-its kind technology captivated audiences at this year’s Hunkler Innovationdays. It provides bookbinders with the ability to produce ultra-short runs of as little as one copy per job much more economically, not only in softcover but in hardcover as well.
Attendees can also learn about the magic of Connex, Muller Martini’s workflow system which tracks, monitors, and analyzes a job’s data and its variability throughout the entire production process, transforming accessible data into actionable decision-making. Also on hand with be MMServices, Muller Martini’s productivity-enhancing suite of operational improvement programs that helps downtime disappear.
Not only will booth visitors receive a variety of finished samples (e.g., coloring books, journals, etc.), they will also be entertained by a live magician performing sleight of hand and other acts of prestidigitation. In addition, Muller Martini is hosting its renowned Blue Hour at the close of the exhibit day on Oct. 23 and 24. Attendees will have an opportunity to meet with Thomas Krischke, president and CEO of Muller Martini North America, as well as a team of regional sales managers, product engineers, and service technicians.
With faster workflows, zero makereadies, and less labor and waste, the magic of Muller Martini’s Finishing 4.0 line-up is that it represents the future of finishing that continues to unfold. At PRINTING United, attendees can see for themselves how they too can optimize their production line’s performance while creating new business models — thereby offering increased opportunities to create more engaging and differentiating print products for their customers.
At Muller Martini’s booth, the finishing process may look like magic, but it’s real.
