Morgana to go Pro at the NEC

Birmingham’s NEC will be the venue for the Morgana to demonstrated the latest additions to its advanced portfolio of print finishing technology at this year’s Print Show. The national exhibition runs from October 11th to 13th and will see thousands from the UK print community gather to investigate the latest kit, absorb a plethora of valuable educational content, and network with their industry peers.

The success of their investment at The Print Show 2015 has seen Morgana return in force for its 2016 instalment. Pictured: (L to R) Morgana’s Wendy Hogg, AB Print Group’s Richard Walmesley, and Morgana’s Wendy Baker after concluding an investment deal

Commenting on the new Digi Fold Pro 385, Morgana’s vice president of sales and marketing Ray Hillhouse says: “The Digi Fold has long been the benchmark product in the creaser/folder sector. With the improvements in speed and productivity for the current crop of digital print engines, Morgana needs to provide an additional option for our customers. After surveying our Digi Fold users, we’ve been able to address what they need as their digital production grows.”

One of the key changes from previous Digi Fold models is the introduction of a high-capacity vacuum top-feeder that can take a sheet pile of up to 450mm. Once the size and thickness of stock are entered, all other feeder functions including air and vacuum settings, side guide positions, and fold roller gaps are automatically adjusted for quick and easy setup of jobs. Stock of up to 0.4mm can be creased and folded with virtually no cracking of the sheets or the toner on them.

Another new feature is the dual creasing blades, the Morgana Dyna Crease, for creasing and folding applications at over 6,000 sheets per hour, and one for ‘creasing only mode’, which allows the widest range of applications to be produced on one machine.

As well as the new feeder, this version of the Auto Creaser will have a dual creasing blade and matrix, which is particularly useful if producing covers for perfect binding

Hillhouse adds: “The new Pro 385 model will top the Digi Fold range providing a heavy-duty machine for longer run applications of both digitally and litho printed work – it’s exactly what our larger customers have been asking for.”
As well as the new feeder, this version of the Auto Creaser will have a dual creasing blade and matrix, which is particularly useful if producing covers for perfect binding where the spine and hinge creases can be produced in one pass, or for those users who wish to change creasing profiles regularly. The new Auto Creaser Pro 385 can run at up to 8,500 sheets per hour.

Morgana Systems has built its reputation on providing an impressive range of digital finishing products from the simplest entry-level creasing units through to highly sophisticated multi-functional systems offering a range of finishing capabilities in a single unit. Since its acquisition by Plockmatic in 2013 the product portfolio has also been extended with a wide range of booklet making systems to meet every production requirement.

Beginning with the launch of the revolutionary Auto Creaser in 2000, Morgana Systems has been one of the leading exponents of digital printers. Morgana’s factory in Milton Keynes produces more than 4,000 finishing products each year, with over 80 percent of these destined for export.
