We will be presenting a world first at the Hunkeler Innovationdays from February 25 to 28 in Lucerne. With its new endsheet feeder, presented to the public for the first time, Muller Martini will be demonstrating how the Vareo perfect binder/three-knife trimmer InfiniTrim Duo can industrially produce hardcover book blocks of the highest quality in runs of one copy.
In 2016, Muller Martini caused a stir at its stand at drupa. With the Vareo and the InfiniTrim, we presented a dream team in Düsseldorf that has revolutionized softcover production in ultra-short runs - the Vareo
as the world‘s first perfect binder to have all three clamps equipped with their own servo motor and driven individually, and the three-knife trimmer InfiniTrim
with its revolutionary drive, transport and trim concept.
Dozens of customers across the world have now taken advantage of the great benefits the inline combination offers and are producing perfect-bound ultra-short runs right down to one copy per job with the shortest processing times (such as the English ultra-short run specialist Printondemand
Fewer than three years later, the „unbeatable duo“ has become an „unbeatable trio“ - and the softcover pallet has also been magically extended to hardcover. This is made possible by the new endsheet feeder (VBA), which we are adding to the Vareo and InfiniTrim duo..
Inline hardcover production now also in ultra-short runs
To date, VBAs have been used exclusively in the high-performance categories. With our new, compact VBA/Vareo/InfiniTrim solution, however, we are now ensuring that book blocks with endsheets and liners can also be produced inline in ultra-short runs. The Vareo thereby displays another exclusive strength. For you as a bookbinder, the new machine configuration, designed entirely in line with our Finishing 4.0 philosophy, has the great advantage of enabling you to produce ultra-short runs right down to one copy per job much more costeffectively, not only in the softcover but also in the hardcover sector.
We will demonstrate how this works in practice live at our stand at the Hunkeler Innovationdays. In addition to innovative product models, you will also be able to watch how real-life jobs are produced either on site or virtually with virtual reality goggles. If you register your visit to the Muller Martini
stand in advance, you will receive a limited edition of a high-quality notebook made as a Swiss brochure with a personal laser engraving as a premium complimentary gift.
In Lucerne, we will also be showcasing the Ventura MC Digital thread sewing machine. In combination with the VBA, Vareo, InfiniTrim solution, thread-sewn hardcover books can also be produced to high quality standards in runs of one.
