Morgana Systems Ltd, the UK’s leading manufacturer of equipment for digital finishing, has announced that among the many post-press products on show on its Drupa stand this year will be a series of enhancements to its popular Morgana DigiBook 150 entry level PUR perfect Binder.
The DigiBook 150 has been upgraded to incorporate some of the features of the higher specification DigiBook 200 model. Key additions to the machine include automatic book block clamping and a new glue nozzle system, which has been upgraded to give better control of the spine and side glue application.
Commenting on the enhancements, Ray Hillhouse, VP of Sales said: “There is great demand for the entry level machine both in the UK and in many of our export markets, however, it needed some productivity enhancements and a new user interface to bring it in line with the others models in the range, and to take advantage of the latest changes in PUR glue.”
Hillhouse continued: “This is the first of many upgrades to the DigiBook range which will be shown at DRUPA. With the DigiBook 150 costing around £20,000 it makes PUR perfect binding a cost effective option for even the smallest printers.”
Morgana offer a wide range of perfect binding equipment. The binding technique known as perfect binding is used to create books with a similar appearance to that of a paper backed book. With PUR the book blocks are milled on the spine to enable the paper to absorb the adhesive. The books are trimmed on three sides to produce a professional finished result.
The Morgana DigiBook 150 is an entry level PUR binder and is ideally suited to traditional and digital printers who require short runs of PUR perfect bound books to a professional standard.
