Muller Martini demonstrated the connectivity between Muller Martini’s Connex data and process management system and Hunkeler’s roll-to-stack line at Hunkeler Innovationdays trade fair in Lucerne, as part of a combined run of one line for softcover products, just like with Muller Martini’s Vareo perfect binding line.
“The connection of the Connex system to a Hunkeler roll-to-stack line in Lucerne was an important workflow milestone in Muller Martini’s systematic development of the Finishing 4.0 philosophy,” concluded Volker Leonhardt, sales and marketing director at Muller Martini Print Finishing Systems AG,.
“Enabling the connectivity of Connex with the systems of a third-party supplier for the first time in the field of print finishing represents a quantum leap in the graphic arts industry. The fact that our booth at Hunkeler Innovationdays attracted so many visitors on all four days demonstrates that Muller Martini has its finger on the pulse with its solutions for runs of one copy in softcover production with the Vareo perfect binder and the InfiniTrim three-knife trimmer and in saddle stitching with the Presto II Digital.”
Leonhardt added that “this year Hunkeler Innovationdays had become considerably more international thanks to numerous visitors from the USA, Asia and the Middle East. That’s a clear sign that digital printing is also gaining a more international profile. Our compact solutions for products in runs of one copy reduce the barriers for entry to digital printing for digital arts companies.”
