Due to arrive at the company’s Shaftesbury site this month, the solution offers a performance of 14,000 per hour as standard and 28,000 per hour in two-up format.

The Primera features automatically synchronised feeders, which Muller Martini says calculate the optimum feeding position of the signatures and couples the feeder in that position, as well as a three-knife or five-knife trimmer and compensating stacker.

The volumes of saddle-stitched work  has increased dramatically over the past six months – mainly generated from the faster output from our B1 UV-LED KBA that we installed last year

Nigel Hunt, production director at Blackmore, says: “The volumes of saddle-stitched work  has increased dramatically over the past six months – mainly generated from the faster output from our B1 UV-LED KBA that we installed last year. 

“We needed to match this output in our finishing department and with our requirements for very high-quality at speed and the ability to occasionally trim products up to 10mm thick, there was really only one machine up to the job.”
