Muller Martini (Booth 637) is introducing its Scalable SigmaLine digital book manufacturing system, for producing books using various styles of book blocks (cut sheet and signatures). The Scalable SigmaLine technology consists of a 1,000 cycles-per-hour system featuring the SigmaBinder, a four-clamp perfect binder with a measuring station that uses lasers to capture the dimensions of the incoming book block. These measurements are used to automatically set the binder’s length, width and thickness dimensions in real time. The book is then transferred to the SigmaTower to both cool and allow curing of the adhesive prior to trimming. From there, the book moves directly into the SigmaTrimmer where three independently driven knife elements automatically trim books of varying sizes and thickness without makeready. There is no changing of pressing pads or cartridges.
