Finishing

It’s a stitch-up

The secret of the Presto II digital saddle stitcher lies in the saddle stitcher's multi-functionality and its high level of flexibility says David McGinlay, sales manager of Muller Martini

Winner: the Presto II digital saddle stitcher

The British firm have seen more than a dozen companies across the UK and the Irish Republic invest in the stitchers in the last year because they are equally equipped for both traditional offset sheet fed printing and for digital printing with its short-run jobs.

McGinlay says: “One of our Presto II customers recently produced 247,000 brochures with 817 job changes and an average run of 302 copies per title in nine days. The data for all of these jobs was imported from the customers' management information system (MIS). 

"There are two main reasons for this growth in demand of short run lengths.  On the one hand, the web-to-print market in Great Britain and Ireland is growing significantly.”

He continues: "The volumes in this segment have increased dramatically recently. On the other hand, as a result, Variable Data Printing (VDP) with its multi-job function has become increasingly important.”

Liam Cody of Kilkenny Modern Printers in Ireland gave this endorsement: "We commissioned the Presto II instead of a second-hand Prima and thereby not only reduced our make-ready times significantly, but also hugely increased our production reliability."

MacKay and Inglis printers in Glasgow also endorsed the production improvements from Muller Martini, with the installation of their third Presto II unit.
