Morgana Systems Ltd, the UK’s leading manufacturer of equipment for digital finishing, has announced details of its exhibit for GraphExpo 2015. The company can be found at booth #2448, 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, high page-count bookletmakers, with product being shown for the first time at Graph Expo.
Product on show at the event will include the BM500, a machine capable of producing booklets of up to 200 pages. It is the first Morgana bookletmaker to incorporate the new full-colour touchscreen interface giving very clear visible instructions to the operator on all machine functions. The bookletmaker can be supplied with a lead edge trimmer and with the Morgana Squarefold option for flat edged books. It is partnered by the BM350, a similar platform producing booklets of up to 35 sheets of 20lb – equating to 140 page pubications.
Vacuum Feed Option
Morgana will preview for the first time the new VF602 vacuum fed version of their twin bin high capacity feeder. Commenting on this, Ray Hillhouse, VP of Offline Sales, said: “We are very excited about this new addition to the range. The air-assisted AF602 was launched at GE last year and has been very successful, but some applications are simply more suited to a vacuum feeding head, so now we have it! The feeder is initially available for the 2000 Series bookletmakers, but will be available for the new BM500 later this year.”
Bar Code Reading System
Both VF602 and AF602 feeders can now be equipped with a Bar Code Reading system for variable data applications. Hillhouse adds: “We’re being asked for barcode reading from sectors where there is a need for absolute set integrity or the need to produce booklets with variable page counts, such a personalised financial reports. This system answers these needs perfectly.”
Morgana will be showing its DigiBook 200 perfect binding solution, as debuted at the show last year. The binder is ideal for short and ultra-short runs of books with spines measuring up to 2 inches.
Get Smart with SmartScreen
Morgana’s exhibit will feature 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.
