Digital printing, which has long become established in book printing, increasingly presents new opportunities in saddle stitching too. Run lengths for magazines, periodicals and brochures are decreasing, while product variety is on the increase. That calls for shorter processing times, which makes digital printing even more attractive.
The Presto II Digital saddle stitcher combined with the Heidelberg Stahlfolder TH 56 folding machine is an ideal solution for the production of short and medium runs.

Versatile Saddle Stitching Solution
The Presto II Digital saddle stitching system is ideally suited to digital solutions, since it combines maximum automation with process reliability. The modular design familiar from conventional production enables an extremely wide range of configurations, allowing the system to be used for both digital and conventional production. The flying stitching heads ensure first-class stitching and the robust three-knife trimmer is easy to operate and provides high trim quality.
Compact Solution – High Investment Protection
The Stahlfolder TH 56 lends itself to the print finishing of digitally printed sheets. The flat pile feeder is a compact and cost-effective feeder version that represents an affordable investment. Thanks to the airstream table, the sheets can be precisely aligned and transported without any markings. The softfold unit with automated fold rollers, knife shafts and combined pockets results in shorter setup times, which equates to significantly higher net output. The solution provides high investment protection, since the Stahlfolder TH 56 can also be used easily and within minimal time as a fully fledged folding machine.
The Connex data and process management system developed by Muller Martini and used across the group ensures the seamless interplay and optimal control of all aggregates in all print finishing processes.
