New gathering machine

Muller Martini has launched a new gathering machine, the 3692, designed for small and medium-sized perfect binding jobs. Its highlights include the patented book verification system, which automatically prevents production with incorrectly set-up signatures.
It’s a compact machine that can be loaded and operated ergonomically on both sides, allowing operators to load it on one side and simultaneously prepare the next job on the other side during production. There’s a pivoted central touchscreen that does away with the need to move around the line assemblies and also reduces job changeover times significantly. It can handle variable sizes as well as reliable signature separation. The spacious feeding drums ensure the secure processing of signatures with large widths, including A4 landscape sizes.
It replaces the 1571 gathering machine and can be used in the Pantera and Alegro A6 perfect binding lines.





Syndicate content

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
