Morgana at Graph Expo 2015
McCormick Place, Chicago
Morgana Systems Ltd, the UK’s leading manufacturer of equipment for digital finishing, has announced details of its exhibit for GRAPH EXPO 2015. The company can be found at booth #2448, close to its major customer base, the digital print engine manufacturers.
Morgana Systems USA will have a strong presence at the show where the product range will be significantly enhanced with latest product introductions in heavy duty bookletmaking.
The BM350/500 can be supplied as a stand-alone hand-fed unit, or linked with either AF602 (System AF350/500) or other popular feeders in the Morgana range. There is also a BM350 available, which is built on a similar platform and can produce up to 35 sheets of 80gsm – giving booklets of up to 140 pages.
The BM350/500 is the first Morgana bookletmaker to incorporate the new full-colour touchscreen interface that gives very clear visible instructions to the operator on all machine functions. The bookletmaker can also be supplied with a lead edge trimmer and with the Morgana Squarefold option for flat edged books. The Squarefold option is a great addition to the system when producing thicker booklets – it gives a really great, perfect bound look to the book and the ability to print onto the spines.
DigiBook 200 PUR Binder
The DigiBook 200 PUR Binder is equipped with a patented closed gluing system where the spine and side gluing is accurately applied by a slot applicator. The DigiBook 200 provides up to 200 books per hour, and up to 2" thick, with automatic block measuring, clamp setting and nozzle adjustment.
Get Smart with SmartScreen
Morgana will be showing several machines from their Pro range of creasers and folders, all controlled with the SmartScreen touchscreen. The market leading AutoCreaser 33 will be shown with the latest software, which includes an application specifically designed for perfect bound cover production. The larger sized AutoCreaser Pro 50 will be running with the AutoFold Pro inline folding unit. The AutoFold Pro can be added to any existing Morgana creaser or to other manufacturers creasing machines.
The DigiFold Pro creaser/folder will be on show and continues to be the market leader in class, 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.
Quick cutting with CardXtra Plus
CardXtra Plus automates many of finishing tasks in this one versatile cutting and creasing unit. 250 business cards can be finished in less than 2 minutes. A small job such as this would previously have needed 18 cuts on a guillotine, but can now be offered as a “while you wait” service.
In addition to the extensive range of offline and near line solutions from Morgana USA, parent company Plockmatic will also have a strong representation at the show with its wide range of inline solutions.
