The suckers, which can be switched on individually and are each equipped with an injector, ensure a high degree of production reliability. Reliability is also guaranteed by the Asir sensor, which can be integrated with the auxiliary saddle to control the sequence of signatures and opening. Markings on the signatures are prevented by the nip rollers being switched off above a speed of 50 cycles. No other entry-level model in the market allows cutting the threads without tension between the individual book blocks, which is made possible by the active thread divider system.

At field test customer Conzella Verlagsbuchbinderei Urban Meister GmbH & Co. KG in Pfarrkirchen (Germany), the Ventura MC 160 book sewing machine has processed over 10 million signatures in its first six months of operation. “The quality of the end products is consistently high,” says Production Manager Markus Estermann.
Conzella integrated the Ventura MC 160, like its other seven book sewing machines, with one of its two VenturaConnect systems. The signatures are gathered, stacked and processed into thread-sewn book blocks in a single procedure, thereby considerably reducing the production costs of thread-sewn products.
