The PRIMERA MC14
Wondering how to best and quickly process your printed materials using V1 stitched bindings? With our new and automated PRIMERA MC14 line, it will be no problem at all! Thanks to the latest V1 binding technology, we're now ready to handle larger quantities, regardless of the number of versions that you want to process. It basically runs by itself thanks to an automatic set-up process.
Electronics replacing mechanics
This is the path REUS has staked out in the field of V1 stitched bindings. The PRIMERA MC14 model is a solution that delivers the required output and efficiency in transitioning between individual customers. The technology delivered by Müller Martini has electronic controls and a fully automatic set-up process. This ensures operator convenience, and above all, efficiency in processing variants of complex products where set-up times (no matter how short) increase linearly with the number of different versions. Electronic controls, a logical arrangement and system monitoring ensure smooth order completion and a flawless transition between individual product variants. Maximum output of 14,000 units per hour provides ample capacity even for larger production volumes. Thanks to automation, the set-up times are done in a matter of minutes, which fully delivers on the company's current standards and requirements for general improvements in production processes.
Technology with an idea
In total, it is possible to use four flat stack loaders (optimal for stacks - streams) and two vertical stack loaders for loose stacked materials. There is also an envelope loader (Falzanleger) and a glue applicator (Kartenkleber) which has the ability to apply glue in a specific location. The line is designed for double production operations for mini formats from 86 mm tall and 63 mm wide. In its full configuration, the line also includes a SITMA line for inserts. In addition to standard rotary loaders, there is also a Pick And Place system, an equipment for gluing 3D attachments using fugitive removable glue.
The entire system is designed so that both lines (PRIMERA and SITMA) can produce in parallel and independently of one another. This means that both assemblies can be used in the in-line production of a V1 booklet with one glue-in before stitching, up to four inserts and a glued 3D object for one defined product, as well as in parallel production of two independent binding and insertion products. The off-line main catalogue loaders perform this for SITMA. One rotating loader is for light products and one stacker is for heavy brochures.
