Two Primera MC saddle stitchers from Muller Martini have helped Austria’s Sandler regain the necessary production balance, according to Muller Martini.
The operation, located in Marbach an der Donau, is one of the world’s best-equipped companies in off-set printing. The company’s flexibility with respect to non-standard products results in more complex orders. In an effort to ensure continuous process optimization, Sandler replaced its outdated saddle stitcher with two Primera MC machines from Muller Martini. With a capacity of 14,000 cycles per hour, the company’s productivity jumped considerably, according to Muller Martini.
The networking of the machine, in line with the Finishing 4.0 approach, makes it possible to follow the status of the Primera MC using a mobile app. The two new saddle stitchers are also configured differently based on the company’s needs, a Muller Martini release says. To handle short and medium runs, one of the saddle stitchers is equipped with two cover feeders and eight vertical pile feeders. The other one lends itself to the smooth processing of runs of well over a million copies thanks to its cover feeder and five flat pile feeders with stream feeders.
