Muller Martini’s Book Data Center can be retrofitted for use with touchscreen-equipped perfect binding lines purchased during the past few years.Imagine if all improvements could be retrofits. Buy new stuff to make old stuff better. That's what Apple did for the iPod. Buy music to make the iPod more valuable so they could charge a premium for a commodity product. They don't make money from iTunes, but lots of money from the iPod. Now they are doing the same thing with iPhones.
Muller Martini’s Book Data Center - Printing Industry News from WhatTheyThink: "Engineered for Acoro, Bolero and Corona adhesive binding systems, Muller’s new BDC (Book Data Center) enables all relevant book measurement data for the entire perfect binding line to be recorded and retrieved by individual machines.
The new electronic 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. Once the measurement process is complete, relevant data can be directly transferred to the line assemblies. The effective set-up time is reduced to a minimum because subsequent orders can be prepared on the BDC during production.
