Muller Martini (Booth 637) is debuting to a global audience the latest addition to its Primera family of saddle stitchers, the Primera E110. Featuring enhanced automation and an improved ergonomic operating concept, the Primera E110 produces 11,000 cycles per hour, delivers fast changeover capabilities and can accommodate a wide size range, including two-up and three-up production.
The stitcher is two to three times faster in makeready than previous saddle stitcher models. Additional features include the set-up wizard, a user-friendly touchscreen that incorporates the AMRYS (Automatic Make Ready System) setup solution, and quickly sets Primera's feeder, stitching machine and three-knife trimmer to the desired size; tWin Score, for creating a high quality score on the folder feeder with no fiber cracking; and the Smart Stitch Control staple function for precise stitching. Unlike earlier machines, the Primera E110's feeder and gathering chain, stitching machine and three-knife trimmer are all synchronized automatically.
A Signature Measuring Device—available for the first time in this class—allows the operator to measure all of the signature dimensions directly at the machine and is electronically inputted into the control system. ASIR3. Muller Martini's Automatic Signature Image Recognition technology, inspects each signature, ensuring proper sequencing with exceptional accuracy. Barcoded products will be run through the Primera E110 during the show. The Primera E110's data collection system provides the decision making information plant management and the operator need in order to achieve a high net production speed quickly and efficiently.
All new to the Primera E110 platform is the availability of a high quality service, MMRemote Online, which enables the stitcher to be connected remotely in order to solve emergencies, reduce downtime, and lower maintenance costs.
