Morgana adds to its bookletmaker portfolio

Two new booklet maker configurations have been added to the portfolio of Morgana Systems in response to an “increasing need for a wider range of inline booklet formats”.

The Morgana PowerSquare 224VF

The Morgana PowerSquare 224VF and Morgana PowerSquare 160VF have been combined with Morgana’s VF Dual Bin feeder as entrant into the offline finishing market. 

Behind the development and manufacture of the new products is Plockmatic, the parent company of Morgana, and Watkiss – also part of the Plockmatic group.

Made for digital and offset print applications, the Morgana PowerSquare 224 is a complete book making system. From one single machine, stitching, folding, spine forming, and trimming occurs. The system also features fully automatic settings for different book size and pagination, including variable stitch-leg length for varying book thicknesses.

The most recent addition to the range, the Morgana PowerSquare 160, was designed to address the needs of mid- to high-volume printers. Capable of producing booklets from a wide range of sheet sizes and materials, the system also offers a compact footprint for smaller workspaces.

These exciting products provide Morgana with market leading bookletmaker technology to take to the offline post-press market. The order book is full right now.

As many of the print engines now coming to the market can offer enhanced long sheet applications, Hillhouse describes the PowerSquare 160 as ideally placed as a “cost-effective solution to the increasing need for a wider range of inline booklet formats, such as landscape A4”.

Both units produce square-back booklets which feature a formed spine, giving the look of a perfect bound publication.

“These exciting products provide Morgana with market leading bookletmaker technology to take to the offline post-press market,” explains Ray Hillhouse, general manager, UK operations for the Plockmatic Group.

“The order book is full right now, and we continue to focus on increasing production at the Sandy site. We have added a great product range into our sales and distribution channels and now have much stronger interest from the print engine manufacturers to integrate the latest products in the range, the PowerSquare 160, in their range,” Hillhouse adds.
