Run sizes for saddle stitched magazines, periodicals and brochures are currently falling but, at the same time, product variety is on the increase. Processing times are also getting shorter and shorter. In addition, personalization of saddle stitched products will increase dramatically in the future, as personalized products allow publishers (and advertisers!) to reach their target groups more successfully. These are all requirements that digital printing can fulfill perfectly. And the more powerful digital printing systems become, the more challenging the finishing process will be.
The Primera saddle stitching system is ideally suited for digital solutions, as it offers the highest possible levels of automation and process reliability and features the modular system that is already familiar from conventional production methods. The modular design also supports flexible extension options and guarantees good investment security for customers, allowing them to fulfill digital printing requirements both now and in the future.
- Offline solution: Comprises a unwind unit, sheeter, innovative processing folder, cover folder feeder, saddle stitching machine and three-knife trimmer. The system really comes into its own when finishing equipment from several printing presses needs to be loaded or when these presses are also used for other finishing processes.
- In-line solution: The highly automated Primera saddle stitcher is integrated into the SigmaLine complete system. This enables the Primera Digital to reliably process the high output levels of high-speed digital printing presses.
- Conventional use: All of the configurations that are possible with the Primera modular system can be achieved if the system is equipped with conventional signature feeders, including a combination of digital and offset printing.
