The enhanced AmigoPUR from Muller Martini now supports PUR processing for both spine and side processing in a single applicator head. Muller Martini claims this is a key benefit as the application of PUR allows manufacturers to produce more durable book in the short-run book market. The upgraded AmigoPUR perfect binder, which one person can operate at 1,500 c/hr, also has a second spine preparation station.

At drupa-2008, Muller Martini introduced a new ergonomic concept for its machines, which has been applied to the AmigoPUR with a touch-screen panel and the hand-feed station repositioned for better loading of the machine. The machine also includes a new vertical book delivery, where the bound product is lowered in a cam controlled motion and held vertically on its spine. The delivery can hold hundreds of books, according to Muller Martini.

The AmigoPlus, as part of a product line that has existing for 14 years, include preexisting features like separate hot-melt spine and side gluing units, milling, cover nipping, 4-line scoring and a menu-guided control system.
