Morgana announce attendance at North Print & Pack 2013
Morgana Systems Ltd, Milton Keynes, the UK’s leading manufacturer of equipment for digital finishing, has confirmed that it will be exhibiting at North Print & Pack, taking place in Harrogate on May 14 to 16, 2013. The company will occupy stand M424 and exhibits will feature a new range of bookletmakers being shown for the very first time.
Products on show will include the new Morgana System 2000 booklet making line complete with the ACF510 feeder, which is capable of producing booklets from pre-collated sets from digital engines and litho printed sheets for collating. The system will also include the CST2000 side trimming and creasing module, meaning jobs do not require any pre-cutting on a guillotine before production.
“Whilst we were already at the event to support digital engine suppliers, with Morgana equipment due to feature at the show on the Konica Minolta and Ricoh stands, we have concluded that North Print & Pack would be an ideal venue at which to launch our new range of bookletmakers. This show is going to be the only major print-based event in 2013 and is therefore an ideal vehicle at which to debut this innovative range of products,” said Quen Baum, Managing Director of Morgana Systems.
“Linking the show with packaging has definitely been the right move. All finishing suppliers need to appreciate the needs of the packaging community. It offers one of the few growth areas in print production at this moment in time, and is itself gradually appreciating the benefits of digital production. We are looking forward to having the opportunity to meet with and talk to visitors from the packaging world in order to get a better understanding of their finishing requirements. It is certainly an area where Morgana would be keen to move into if there is potential for our short-run finishing focus,” added Mr Baum.
The new bookletmakers provide an extended range of performance variations from Morgana’s current DocuMaster products. With output capabilities right through to 3,000 booklets per hour, and the ability to create publications of up to 120 pages, the products can incorporate side-stitching, creasing, and a number of combinations of sheet and pre-printed sheets collation. Precise details of the specific models to be shown at Harrogate will be released shortly.
Also on show will be the Digital FlexoCut (DFC), producing short-run die-cut/creasing applications. “The DFC should be of interest to many visitors to the show including those working in short-run die-cut and packaging applications,” says Ray Hillhouse, UK Sales Manager for Morgana Systems. “It’s a compact, easy-to-use machine that can be set up with just one or two sheets.”
Alongside the new equipment launches, Morgana will also be showing its wide range of creasing and folding machines, including the DigiFold Pro creaser/folder complete with latest software, the AutoCreaser Pro 50 which will be running with the AutoFold and the DocuFold Pro high-speed paper folder. All of these units incorporate the Morgana SmartScreen touch screen control units.
Commenting on Morgana’s decision to exhibit, Mary Buck, North Print & Pack 2013 Sales Manager, said: “We are delighted to welcome Morgana to the rapidly growing list of exhibitors at North Print & Pack. With the event focus on the commercial print and packaging sectors – the widest industry reach ever – it perfectly aligns with Morgana’s range of high-quality finishing solutions. As the UK’s biggest commercial print and packaging event in 2013, North Print & Pack is the ideal platform to launch new product and to showcase leading post-press solutions to the industry.”
