Vareo PRO - The compact All-Rounder

The Vareo PRO is the most ideal perfect binder for print finishing specialists and printing plants that use conventional printing modes or are engaged in digital printing. The three-clamp perfect binder with a mechanical performance of up to 1,350 cycles per hour can be loaded manually or automatically with book blocks. Whether for medium, short or ultra-short runs, right down to runs of one copy, the Vareo is an all-rounder and stands for outstanding binding quality. The first book can be sold, even from book blocks consisting of individual sheets.
Thanks to its unique expandability, for example by means of an end sheet tipper, a hang-out adjustment, various side gluing discs, a mull station, exchangeable side pressing plates or a scan & print unit, it becomes a specialist for the one-off production of hardcover book blocks or special brochures.
The crowning glory in the line is the full-format flexible InfiniTrim cutting robot.
He trims barcode-driven automatically short and ultra-short print runs down to one copy for all book sizes and thickness. This revolutionary concept does not require a manual operator for a variety of production variations, thus guaranteeing an extremely high level of efficiency. With its unique trimming concept, the InfiniTrim can operate both as a hand-fed, stand-alone machine and in inline mode.

 1)    Productivity
The maximum output of 1 350 cycles per hour and fully automatic processing down to book-of-one gives the Vareo PRO Line an absolutely exceptional position, especially in the field of industrial digital printing.

2)    Wide format spectrum
The Vareo PRO Line can process products with a maximum spine length of 360 mm and a book thickness of 60 mm.

3)    Soft- and Hardcover / Offset and Digital
Thanks to a wide range of expansion options, the line can be flexibly adapted to customer requirements. For example, up to four Vareo binders were inline connected with an InfiniTrim in the field.

Connex Workflow System

Connex is the higly modular Muller Maritini Workflow solution. The main modules are:

Connex.Info
Connex.Info is the monitoring and reporting tool for the Connex workflow system. Connex.Info collects the production data for the relevant production lines (Muller Martini or third-party units) and uses it to prepare reports that contain a number of key indicators, such as performance, overall equipment efficiency or productivity. The range of key indicators makes the tool useful for shift managers (indicator: top ten reasons for downtime during the last shift), production managers (key indicator: comparison of equipment productivity) and the company’s management team (key indicator: OEE of the connected saddle stitcher over the last month).
Connex.Info reduces the amount of time required to produce informative reports on print finishing to just a few minutes. Problems revealed in the reports can easily be tracked and analyzed thanks to the level of depth presented by Connex.Info.
Connex.Info can provide a technical assessment of recent production batches and much more, making it possible, for example, to automatically produce weekly assessments and send them to recipients via email. This data can then be forwarded via JMF or to an MIS for business analysis purposes (product costing analysis).

Connex LineControl
LineControl enables the integration of our production equipment in a main planning system (MIS/MES) via a digital job sheet (JDF). The JDF file contains all the relevant production control data. This data is used to prepare the production line and then transmit the job to the production line. This substantially reduces the organizational work that the operator has to perform during his daily routine. Job data, such as print run, job name, size, etc., is available directly in the machine with no need for manual entry by the operator. This ensures the quality of the data throughout the entire production process. LineControl also features options to integrate a barcode scanner to activate orders and identify errors.

Prinova Saddle Stitcher: Produce Quickly and Flexibly

The Prinova is the ideal saddle stitcher for printing houses that work with conventional printing methods and are active in digital printing now or want to enter this field soon.
With the Prinova, the entire feeding station has individual feeders with servo drives, which means that changeovers can be performed incredibly quickly. Because it has a flexible number of individual feeders ranging up to 14 in total, it can be freely adapted to your production needs. The feeders, which can be operated by a single employee thanks to their large loading capacity, are tiltable and can also be used for manual feeding. Centralized operation with a new interface and large touchscreen increases userfriendliness, which in turn shortens processes. As a digital-ready system, it is prepared for the digital transformation and can be expanded to process digital printing jobs. As a result, graphic arts businesses are equipped to face the new challenges of the future, which will provide them with a high level of investment security.
