Morgana launches two booklet makers

Morgana has used last week’s Print Show in the UK to launch two new series of booklet makers, the BM5000 and BM3000, aimed at mid to high volume applications.

This Morgana BM5000 booklet maker comes with a choice of staples or stitching, and for booklets up to 140 or 200 pages.

The BM5000 machines takes sheets up to 320 x 620mm. The BM3000 is smaller, taking sheets up to 305 x 457mm. Both are available in two versions, with the BM5050 and BM3050 able to staple and fold up to 50 sheets of 80gsm to create booklets of up to 200 pages, while the BM5035 and BM3035 take 35 sheets to create booklets up to 140 pages.

The standard versions use a staple system but there’s also 5000S versions available of the larger machines which come with stitching heads, with a choice of two or four heads, which are more expensive but should lower the running costs of the machines. 

Ray Hillhouse, General Manager of Plockmatic’s UK operation, commented: “Customers are demanding more media versatility from digital print, and Morgana needs to be equipped to follow that demand. This latest range of Morgana products have been designed from the ground up to work with today’s coated, uncoated and textured paper stocks.”

Morgana will be selling offline versions of these booklet makers, while its parent company Plockmatic will provide inline versions through its arrangements with press vendors. In addition, there’s an optional dual bin feeder, the vacuum VF602, which is designed for pre-collated sets. Each bin can be loaded separately on the run to give continuous production. Other options include a Face Trimmer to remove the shingled effect on the face of the folded document and provides a clean document edge, and the SquareFold, which adds a square folded spine for a professional, perfect bound look to the finished book.
