Muller Martini at the Printing United Expo in Dallas: “Experience the Magic”
At the Printing United Expo, to be held at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas (USA), from October 23 to 25, Muller Martini will be presenting its latest Finishing 4.0 Solutions at stand 10543 with live demonstrations of its Presto II Digital VT (Variable Thickness) saddle stitcher as well as the new endsheet feeder/Vareo perfect binder/InfiniTrim three-knife trimmer integrated solutions for the industrial production of hardcover book blocks, including runs of one.
“The goal of our Expo presence, the motto of which is ‘Experience the Magic,’ says Thomas Krischke, President and CEO of Muller Martini North America, “is to provide Expo visitors with a closer look at our Finishing 4.0 philosophy and to show them how our solutions will not only improve their workflow and increase their productivity, but also help them to remain competitive for years to come.”
At the Printing United Expo in Dallas, Muller Martini (Andy Fetherman, pictured at center, Vice President of Sales and Technology for Muller Martini North America) will be presenting its new VBA/Vareo/InfiniTrim integrated solutions.
Muller Martini will give various live demonstrations on four print finishing systems for digital printing – the Presto II Digital VT (Variable Thcikness) saddle stitcher, the endsheet feeder, the Vareo perfect binder and the InfiniTrim three-knife trimmer – to show what Finishing 4.0, zero make-ready, touchless workflow, high size variability and book-of-one production mean in practice for bookbinderies.
Until now, endsheet feeders have only been used in the high-performance classes. But now, with its new, compact solution, Muller Martini is enabling the production of book blocks with endsheets and liners in ultra-short runs as well. This new machine configuration, which was developed in line with the Finishing 4.0 philosophy, provides bookbinders with the major advantage of being able to produce ultra-short runs of as little as one copy per job much more economically, not only in softcover but in hardcover as well.
The Printing United Expo opens its doors at 9 a.m. on all three days of the trade fair. It closes at 5 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, and at 3 p.m. on Friday. Before heading home on Wednesday and Thursday, visitors can gather and talk shop at the Muller Martini stand during the popular Blue Hour with Thomas Krischke and the entire Muller Martini team of sales managers, product engineers and service technicians.
Andy Fetherman, Vice President of Sales and Technology of Muller Martini North America, will also participate in two panel discussions on Wednesday on the topics: “Book Industry Update: Digital Printing, Print Finishing Options and More” and “Developments in Print Finishing and Commercial Printing.”
