In Digital Presses, Finishing on August 15, 2014 at 10:06 am

DigiBook200

Morgana Systems Ltd, the UK’s leading manufacturer of equipment for digital finishing, has announced details of its exhibit for GRAPH EXPO 2014. The company can be found at booth #4013, close to its major customer base, the digital print engine manufacturers.

Morgana Systems USA will have a strong presence at the show where the equipment range will be significantly enhanced with latest product introductions in heavy-duty bookletmaking and a brand new addition to the PUR binding range.

Dual Bin for Faster Feeding

Product on show at the event will include the latest version of the System 2000S, featuring the high capacity dual bin feeder offering a flexible solution for a wide range of booklet types and sizes. The AF602 air assisted feeder has a capacity of up to 21″. Pre-collated sets can be placed into both bins or covers can be placed into one bin when they need to be merged with collated sets. The heavy-duty bookletmaking section comes complete with stitching heads and the unique Morgana Squarefold to give a professional perfect bound effect to the book.

New PUR Unit Makes Debut

Making its show debut in the US, the new DigiBook 200 PUR Binder is equipped with a patented closed gluing system where the spine and side gluing is accurately applied by a slot applicator. The DigiBook 200 provides up to 200 books per hour, and up to 2″ thick, with automatic block measuring, clamp setting and nozzle adjustment.

Get Smart with SmartScreen

Morgana will be showing several machines from their Pro range of creasers and folders, all controlled with the SmartScreen touchscreen. The market leading AutoCreaser 33 will be shown with the latest software, which includes an application specifically designed for perfect bound cover production. The larger sized AutoCreaser Pro 50 will be running with the AutoFold Pro inline folding unit. The AutoFold Pro can be added to any existing Morgana creaser or to other manufacturers creasing machines.

The DigiFold Pro creaser/folder will be on show and continues to be the market leader in class, offering unrivalled production in terms of quality and accuracy. This machine can crease and fold stock up to 0.015″ thick without cracking the toner or stock surface.

Quick Cutting with CardXtra Plus

CardXtra Plus automates many of finishing tasks in this one versatile cutting and creasing unit. 250 business cards can be finished in less than 2 minutes. A small job such as this would previously have needed 18 cuts on a guillotine, but can now be offered as a “while you wait” service.

In addition to the extensive range of offline and near line solutions from Morgana USA, parent company Plockmatic will also have a strong representation at the show with its wide range of inline solutions.

Morgana and Konica in Manchester for Pro Tour

In Digital Presses, Finishing on July 10, 2014 at 9:50 am

MorganaKM_ProTour

Morgana Systems Ltd, the Milton Keynes based finishing equipment manufacturer, has announced details of a two-day event taking place in conjunction with digital engine supplier Konica Minolta. The event will be staged at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground in Manchester on July 22nd and 23rd.

The Pro Tour will see the “roadshow” debut of both the DigiBook 200 PUR perfect binder from Morgana and the new Konica Minolta bizhub C1100.

Speaking about the event, Wendy Baker, Marketing Project Manager at Morgana Systems, said: “Morgana Systems is the technological leader in finishing for digital print. We don’t wait for a trend to emerge onto the market – instead we come up with finishing solutions that lead the way in speeding up print production.”

She continued: “Finishing is the last thing you do with a job, but the first thing your customer sees. Poor finishing can ruin a prestige piece of digital print, whereas a well-finished piece of work can impress even the most demanding of clients. At the Morgana / Konica Minolta Pro Tour we will be demonstrating a full range of print finishing systems designed specifically for digitally printed documents to give any print producers customers’ the best possible results.”

The Morgana Systems DigiBook 200 PUR perfect binder handles spine lengths from 110 to 320mm and the maximum thickness is 50mm. Retractable spine milling means that the device can go from soft- to hard-cover binding at the flick of a switch. Side gluing for the cover hinge is adjustable depending upon the cover style required.

Demand for PUR binding from digital printers has been growing swiftly in recent years. The DigiBook range from Morgana Systems has proved extremely popular with print operations seeking a more effective and substantial bind than that offered by regular hot-melt devices.

This Pro Tour event in Manchester will also feature partners Rosefox Papers, Vpress, and Compass Finance, plus a host of guest speakers, including print experts Matthew Parker, Neil Falconer, and Charlotte Graham Cumming.

Looking for a Great Finish? Morgana Open Days

In Finishing on July 8, 2014 at 2:23 pm

Morgana Systems Ltd, the Milton Keynes based finishing equipment manufacturer, has announced details of a series of open days at its Milton Keynes premises taking place from July 7th through to July 11th.

MK Open day P1-1

The Great Finishing Event will showcase the latest range of post-press equipment suited to both digital and offset litho printed work. Following an extremely busy Ipex show earlier this year, the company will again offer an opportunity for visitors to the open days to get a close up viewing of some of the “stars of the show”, the new DigiBook 200 perfect binding machine and the System 2000 bookletmaker featuring the new AF602 dual bin feed option, allowing both digital and offset produced work to be combined within the same booklet.

Free DigiCreaser with a DigiBook 150

As a special offer during the event the company will be giving a free Morgana DigiCreaser with every order for a Morgana DigiBook 150 PUR binder. This entry level perfect binding machine has been extremely popular with UK print focused businesses and inplants since its launch two years ago.

The DigiBook 150 is capable of approximately 150 cycles per hour, and can bind publications with spine thicknesses from 2mm through to 50mm, in book sizes up to 380 x 320mm. A key feature of the 150, and across the DigiBook range, is the patented glue application system. Spine and side glue is applied using an adjustable slot applicator allowing accurate control over both functions to give the best possible results. All the machines have an hermetically sealed glue and cleaning system which gives the quickest possible start-up and shutdown of the system with minimal glue wastage.

Pre-Owned Product Offers

Special offers will abound for visitors to The Great Finishing Event, with the company looking to clear space in its Milton Keynes factory to enable more room at the facility for newly manufactured machinery. A good number of pre-owned finishing products will be available for visitors to view and “test drive”.
