Morgana announces release of DocuBind Pro VFX

Morgana Systems Ltd has announced the release of the Morgana DocuBind Pro VFX – an innovative solution for the popular twin loop wire style of binding.

Mechanical twin loop wire binding is a hugely popular method for assembling a document where there is a need for a book to lay completely flat, often for pages to be written on. This method is widely used in education and training materials, as well as notebooks and calendar production, where customers are more demanding than ever, and often there is a demand for the fast turnaround of the work. Traditional methods of twin wire binding often involve slow and labour intensive hand fed solutions.

The key elements of the DocuBind Pro VFX are the high speed Morgana VFX vacuum feeder, running at up to 140 pages per minute, the StreamPunch VFX heavy duty punching and creasing module, and the innovative eWire VFX twin wire automatic binding solution, which is engineered by GBC.

With its small footprint and wide range of easy to use features, the DocuBind Pro VFX will improve workflow and reduce labour costs for a great deal of mechanical binding work.

Commenting on the introduction of the DocuBind VFX, Ray Hillhouse, VP Sales & Marketing for the Plockmatic Group Offline Business Unit, said: “This newly created, fully automated solution provides for significantly greater productivity versus manual production, and greater flexibility when compared to complex inline solutions. We see a sizeable gap in the market for such a compact, free-standing unit.”

Morgana VFX Vacuum Feeder - The Morgana VFX Vacuum Feeder is the latest twin tray feeder platform from Plockmatic Group.

The dual design focus for the Morgana VFX increased ease of use for the operator and enhanced feed reliability. It includes numerous patent pending technologies that have been developed to minimise operator set-up time and reduce the requirements for exclusively trained operators. The feeder can hold up to 5,400 sheets. It can handle paper weights from 75gsm through to 300gsm, including coated stock.

StreamPunch - VFX The StreamPunch VFX is a fully automatic hole punching unit which utilises a wide range of die-sets for multiple hole types, including wire binding, coil binding, plastic comb binding, or even for the basic creasing of printed sheets. Pages can be punched to be automatically bound in the eWire system or can bypass the eWire to exit onto a delivery tray for other applications. The dies are heavily engineered for long life and durability. Sheets up to SRA3 can be punched in stock weights of up to 300gsm.

eWire VFX - The eWire VFX completes the binding process. Wire from spools is fed from inside the main cabinet of the machine, cut to the required length, closed automatically, and the finished book then delivered into a catch stacker. Wire is available in six different spool sizes for documents up to 10mm thick, or approximately 100 pages. Wire is available in white, black or silver to match the desired finish of the document.

The Morgana DocuBind Pro VFX will be shown at “Print with a Twist” Open House in Milton Keynes, with shipment available in Q4 this year.
