The DigiBook 300XLPro PUR binder from Morgana
An updated version of the DigiBook 300, Morgana's latest machine incorporates several new features for better binding.
'The first important change to the new model is we have made it a single-phase machine,' explained Ray Hillhouse, vice-president offline business at Morgana. 'The previous version required a three-phase power supply, which limited its potential installation to larger print shops and factories that had access to three-phase power. The 300XLPro is now a 32-amp single-phase machine.'
Another key change is the book format, which replaces the need for extended cover kits sold with previous machines. The DigiBook 300XLPro now has a larger cover kit fitted as standard and can produce books with a spine length of up to 450mm, providing the ability to produce landscape SRA3 format books with spine thickness of up to 50mm.
In addition, the option of a gauze station allows for the production of book blocks ready for case binding, while a high capacity paper chip extractor unit with a 78-litre capacity for paper dust permits longer uninterrupted runs. The new binder is still equipped with the same hermetically sealed PUR glue application system.
The DigiBook 300XLPro is available for order now, with a lead-time of approximately 4 to 6 weeks.
