Morgana Systems, the UK’s leading manufacturer of equipment for digital finishing, has announced the release of the DigiBook 300XLPro PUR binder – an updated version of its existing DigiBook 300. The machine incorporates several new features to address some specific applications posed by the market.

Commenting on the new unit, Ray Hillhouse, vice-president offline business at Morgana, said: “The first important change to the new model is we have made it a single-phase machine. The previous version required a three-phase power supply, which limited its potential installation to larger print shops and factories that had access to three-phase power. The 300XLPro is now a 32-amp single-phase machine, and this will allow its installation in most commercial premises and print businesses.

“Another key change, and perhaps the most significant, is the book format. Several machines of the previous specification were sold with special extended cover kits to allow for the production of books larger than A4 size. We also had a number of requests for landscape A3 or 11”x17” finished size books.” (see UK Sales Manager Paul Williams opening an A3 publication bound on the 300XLPro)

The new DigiBook 300XLPro now has an even larger cover kit fitted as standard, and can produce books with a spine length of up to 450mm. This provides the ability to produce landscape SRA3 format books, with spine thickness of up to 50mm, thus opening up another whole range of applications.

“This latest addition further enhances our range of PUR binders – machines that have proven to be very popular with printers of all sizes both here in the UK and throughout the world,” added Ray Hillhouse.

Two additional options are now available for the 300XLPro: one is the gauze station, which will allow for the production of book blocks ready for case binding. The other option, that may be useful for customers producing longer runs, is the high capacity paper chip extractor. This unit has a 78-litre capacity for paper dust, allowing long uninterrupted runs of even the thickest books.

In addition to these changes, the machine is still equipped with the same hermetically sealed PUR glue application system. This system is the most efficient nozzle system on the market, with fast start-up and shutdown and minimal wastage. It has automatic cleaning and sealing of the head at the end of the production run.

The machine is available for order now, with a lead-time of approximately 4 to 6 weeks.
