Morgana Systems Ltd, Milton Keynes, the UK’s leading manufacturer of equipment for digital finishing, has announced details of its first 2013 Morgana Pro Tour event. Live post-press demonstrations will take place at the Bradford Bulls Stadium on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th February.
Visitors will be encouraged to both see and test a wide range of Morgana products including the DigiFold Pro creasing and folding machine, the AutoCreaser Pro 50 creasing machine, and the DocuMaster Pro booklet-maker system. In addition to these units visitors will be able to try out a range of multifunction finishing devices, including the recently launched Aerocut Quatro device, which can cut, crease and slit in one pass, making it the ideal tool to trim finishing time to a fraction in a busy digital print environment.
Added to all of this Morgana will be showing its entry level PUR binding machine, the DigiBook 150, which has been very well received by UK printing operations since its launch at Drupa last year.
Commenting on the latest show in this continuing series of events taking place up and down the country, Ray Hillhouse, Sales Manager for Morgana Systems, said: “Regional events like this give us a great opportunity to take our product to the customer, and let print businesses try them out with their own work, at a location close to them. Hands-on tests, using customers own work where possible, are by far the best way to show a business owner the benefits of a product.”
Produces up to 1,560 stitched books per hour. The DocuMaster Pro has the same SmartScreen module as used by the whole range of Morgana Pro machines, making it ideal for fast and easy operation. This latest version of the machine also benefits from the new PosiFeed feeding system, making an already impressive feeder totally awesome!
The multifunction machine is now often seen as an essential for the busy print shop where space is at a premium. The AeroCut can finish a huge range of different types of job, which can be completed in one pass. This latest unit can handle the post-press operations needed for 4pp brochures, business cards, tent cards, folded business cards CD and DVD jackets, and booklets – all with the quickest of set-ups and absolute minimum wastage.
The DigiBook 150 is the entry-level product. It is capable of approximately 150 cycles per hour, it 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.
PUR is the strongest, most flexible binding adhesive available, offering several additional advantages over other hot-melt adhesives. When inks, coatings or digital print toners are present in the spine area these can often compromise the strength of a typical hot-melt perfect binding. PUR is resistant to this and will form a super-strong bond with all weights and finishes of paper stocks. In addition PUR works well with synthetic and recycled-content stocks.
