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.
