Morgana to Launch the NEW DigiBook 200

Morgana DigiBook 200 Morgana to Launch the DigiBook 200 at Graph Expo

Visit Morgana in Booth #4013.

Morgana will use the Graph Expo event to launch the DigiBook 200 in the US. The 200 was first shown at IPEX earlier this year, with units shipping in Europe since July. The DigiBook 200 perfect binder is suited to traditional and digital printers who require short to medium runs of PUR perfect bound books to a professional standard. The DigiBook 200 is equipped with a patented closed gluing system where the spine and side gluing is automatically applied by a slot applicator for the utmost binding quality and accuracy.

PUR is the strongest, most flexible binding adhesive available and offers several additional advantages over other binding adhesives. When inks, coatings or digital print toners are present in the spine area these can compromise the strength of typical hotmelt perfect binding. PUR is resistant to this and will form a super-strong bond with all weights and finishes of paper stocks. In addition PUR works well with synthetic and recycled-content stock.

Key Product Features:

  • Up to 200 books per hour
  • Touch screen operation with automatic set up
  • Binding length (spine) from 4.3″ up to 14.9″
  • Spine thickness from 0.03″ to 1.96″
  • Adjustable spine preparation by sophisticated milling and notching device
  • Paper chip extractor
  • Patented hermetically sealed PUR application system for a spine and side gluing with automatic glue cut-off
  • Automatic cleaning and sealing of the glue head
  • Electronic connection to Morgana Autocreaser Pro for cover creasing

PUR Binding in Focus

Morgana: Bookletmakers and PUR Binding in Focus

Created:
MyPrintResource.com

Best in bookletmakers

morgana2000_11046999A complete new range of bookletmakers will take center stage, including the System 2000S—a product that is capable of producing booklets of up to 120 pages. The system will be fed by the ACF510, a hybrid feeder capable of feeding pre-collated sets from a digital print engine, collating litho printed sections, or indeed combining both into a finished book product. The heavy-duty bookletmaking section comes complete with wire stitching heads, fore-edge trimmer, and the Morgana Squarefold 2000 to give a professional perfect bound effect to the finished product.

The System 2000S will be shown with the optional CST unit. This unit can edge-trim the sheets before the bookletmaking section, meaning the work can be taken straight from the press to the finishing unit with no need to trim the edges on a guillotine. This helps to make the whole process much more streamlined. The CST comes complete with a creasing mechanism helping to eliminate cracking on digital print or cross grained cover stock.

PUR for short-run

digibook300_11046997Another significant debut on the Morgana stand will be the U.S. launch of the DigiBook 300 PUR perfect binding machine. The unit can produce up to 300 8.5×11″ books per hour. A patented solution controls the application of the PUR glue with a sealed nozzle system. This makes DigiBook 300 extremely quick and effective to set-up and shut down—ideal for very short runs of PUR bound books, as often required in the digital printing world. The machine will be shown producing a wide range of digitally printed and litho printed jobs on coated stock, and will be shown producing book blocks with end-papers ready for casing into hard-cover books.

SmartScreen for touch control

In addition to these launches, Morgana will be showing several machines from their Pro range of creasers and folders, all controlled with SmartScreen touchscreen software. The market leading AutoCreaser Pro 33 will be shown with the latest software incorporating an application specifically designed for perfect bound cover production. It is also available with an option of side-stop perforating, ideal for applications such as draw tickets or tear-off vouchers. The larger format AutoCreaser Pro 50 will be running with the AutoFold in-line folding unit. AutoFold can be added to any existing Morgana creaser, or creasing equipment supplied by other manufacturers.

Crease and fold in one unit

The market leading DigiFold Pro creaser/folder will be on display offering unrivalled production in terms of quality and accuracy. This machine can crease and fold stock up to 0.015″ thick without cracking the toner or stock surface. A wide range of folds can be simply selected by touching the fold icon and entering the paper size—the machine then takes care of the remaining set-up automatically.

In addition to the extensive range of off-line and near-line solutions from Morgana USA, its parent company Plockmatic will have strong representation at the show with a wide range of in-line solutions. Bookletmaking systems will be shown in the Ricoh and Xerox booths producing a wide range of booklets, including options for full-bleed trimming and Squarefold production.
