Muller Martini to Feature SigmaLine at Print '05
Muller Martini, Hauppauge, N.Y., will feature its SigmaLine system of modular and scaleable digital OnDemand components at Print '05, Sept. 9-15 in Chicago. The system is the world's first commercial-quality, modular, digital book manufacturing solution that brings diverse printing and finishing to shops of all sizes.
SigmaLine enables printers, binderies and in-house operations to complement their existing book manufacturing capabilities by adding greater efficiency and diversity to individual areas. It also allows companies to implement a whole new strategy by creating an entire OnDemand platform.
Muller Martini will partner with two other graphic arts companies at the show to display SigmaLine's highly agile configuration possibilities. Booth visitors will see various components of the SigmaLine OnDemand solution demonstrated inline with continuous feed digital print engines live at the Xerox booth, #1228 and at the Nipson booth, #12049. In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to speak with experts regarding SigmaLine's printing and finishing capabilities at the Muller Martini booth, #4018.
In other company news, Muller Martini was instrumental in helping Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based Bindery Associates rebuild after having suffered more than $4 million in fire damage last June.
"One-third of our facility was completely destroyed," said Bob Drummond, owner and president of Bindery Associates, a commercial bindery. "We're pretty much back to normal, and we couldn't have asked for more from Muller Martini."
After the facility was reconstructed, Muller Martini installed two rebuilt perfect-binding systems, along with trimmers and gathering units. In addition, Muller technicians remained onsite until the company's binding processes were operating again.
