Ferrostaal New Zealand has released the Morgana DigiBook 150 and 450 PUR (Polyurethane Reactive) binders, expanding Morgana's presence in the local short run production market.
Commenting on the release of DigiBook 150 and DigiBook 450, Andy Cooper, general manager for Morgana Australia, says: “We are releasing the PUR binding products into the mid-price area of the market. We are convinced that the DigiBook fills a significant gap in the perfect binding market. Our current offering is entry level, whereas the DigiBook range gives us more features and more automation to allow higher production levels.”
These machines are equipped with a patented closed gluing system where the spine and side gluing is applied by a slot applicator with job specifications entered via a touch screen panel with icon graphics. According to Cooper this allows the programming of all precision operations in just a few seconds, including start-up and shutdown.
There are a thousand alphanumeric memories available, which allow repeat jobs to be saved for later recall, thus providing totally automatic setup in a few seconds.
