This September, Muller Martini will unveil its new Book Data Center (BDC) for Acoro, Bolero and Corona adhesive binding systems. According to the company, BDC enables all relevant book measurement data for the perfect-binding line to be recorded and retrieved by individual machines.
Muller continues to state that BDC enables book mass data to be recorded and that data can be utilized for setting up the rotary gathering machine, stream feeder, perfect binder, front trimmer, splitting saw/turnover belt, three-knife trimmer and counter stacker. The Book Data Center is also linked to the controls of the line assemblies, which means relevant data can be directly transferred to the line assemblies as soon as the measurement process is complete.
The new system includes a measuring table on a moveable base unit, as well as a touchscreen. Muller Martini’s Book Data Center can be retrofitted for use with touchscreen-equipped perfect binding lines purchased during the past few years.
