At Print 13, Muller Martini to present their configurable, component-driven engineering solutions that grow business—while protecting bottom lines
Change can be good. But what’s even better are technology solutions that enable printers and binderies to plan for change, without seriously impacting their current business—or budget. At Print 13, Muller Martini will be showcasing their new engineering concept which enables customers to not only manage change, but to compete and thrive within a print landscape that continues to evolve.
To visually illustrate this concept, part of Muller’s product display in Booth #831 at Print 13 will be the base-only of the popular Alegro perfect binder. The base represents Muller’s new engineering platform since it provides the foundation for a wide range of add-on components or workstations. Each component is servo-driven and individually controlled, so there is no need for line shafts and chain drives. This not only means less wear and tear, lower maintenance and fewer spare parts, but ease of expandability because equipment can be reconfigured without having to dismantle the entire machine.
Muller’s component- and module-driven bindery and press solutions can manage dual production output and multiple product formats, and offer sound investment choices since components can be added as opportunities arise and bottom lines allow. For many, this means a comfortable migration from offset print manufacturing to the inclusion of digital and hybrid products.
Remarked Carrington Herbert, Vice President of Sales, “Muller is re-engineering solutions for the next generation of print so that if a customer’s needs change, their machine doesn’t become obsolete. We can simply reconfigure the machine with new workstations that provide additional capabilities. What this really means for our customers is investment protection. And this component-driven design concept applies to Muller’s full product line, whether it be a perfect binder, saddle stitcher, trimmer, packaging press or an inserter.”
During Print 13, Muller Martini will feature on-going demonstrations of two machines that underscore their investment protection promise. The Presto II Digital Saddle Stitching System—a Must See ‘Em Award Winner—can be configured as a standard stitcher to replace an older asset, with new components added to make it digital-ready. The Solit Three Knife Trimmer, designed to perform in both digital and medium-run offset production environments, will also be running live.
Print 13 takes place September 8-12, 2013 at Chicago’s McCormick Place. Muller Martini’s theme at this year’s show is “Investment Protection. Make Ready for Change.” Muller’s engineers and product specialists will be on hand in Booth #831 to demonstrate manufacturing technology that’s been designed to grow as business grows, through components that add capabilities to accommodate dual production output.
