For those who are in the printing and publishing industry, finding the right equipment to speed up production and improve output quality is a top priority. This is where the Müller Martini Pantera adhesive binder comes in. This compact binding machine is designed to offer a wide range of binding options with flexible customization features that can complete small to medium-sized jobs efficiently.
The Pantera Adhesive Binder offers a lot of possibilities in a small package. It can provide both pur and hot-melt binding, which makes it an excellent option for a broad range of bookbinding projects. It can also handle various sizes and paper thicknesses, making it a versatile tool for small or large printing businesses.
One of the standout features of the Pantera is its compact design, which makes it an excellent choice for those who have limited space. Even with its compact design, the Pantera can still deliver large job formats with ease.
The large touchscreen display of the Pantera adhesive binder makes it easy to operate, and it comes with an interactive setup assistant companion to guide the operator through the setup process. Another highlight of the Pantera is the Automatic Make Ready System (AMRYS) (optional), which reduces changeover time and workload for machine operators. This option allows the machine to adjust all the setups relevant to the book thickness automatically, allowing operators to complete other tasks efficiently.
The gathering line of the adhesive binder is designed to be efficient and reliable, featuring easy operation and quick setup with tool-less operation. The hoppers can be loaded from both sides, and the line is equipped with Automatic Signature Thickness Measurement (ASAC) and an Automatic Signature Recognition (ASIR) system that can recognize signatures (optional). The line can also be fed using a book block feeder.
The clamps of the adhesive binder are also noteworthy features, as they adjust automatically to each book block's thickness between 2 and 50 mm, creating consistent pressure regardless of the book block's thickness. The spine gluing station, features two application rollers and a counter-rotating back-spinner, ensuring an even application of glue for strong sheet adhesion in the book. The glue application length and spot-gluing can be adjusted via the interactive setup assistant companion.
There are several options: A spine gluing PUR drum roller, including the monitoring of glue temperature and level, easy cleaning and operation, and a simple-to-manage open glue application system. On the other hand, the spine gluing PUR nozzle can also be applied using volumetric PUR nozzle technology (VPN), which ensures the adhesive is sparingly and accurately applied, maintaining high quality properties for a longer time.
The side gluing hot-melt is another option for the machine, and the interactive setup assistant companion can adjust the length of the applied glue according to the cover size. This prevents glue from being applied accidentally to the perfect binder and the side knives of the three-knife trimmer.
The flat-pile cover feeder is space-saving and loaded from the top. Cover feeding is controlled via photocells that ensure secure feeding of covers, and scoring width and depth can be fine-tuned during production. The residual pile monitoring is also provided. The cover nipping of the adhesive binder provides precisely concurrent cover nipping, ensuring impeccably pressed, sharp-edged book spines, and pressing plates can be replaced quickly and easily.
Lastly, for those who need a Three-Knife Trimmer, the Pantera adhesive binder has an optional Three-Knife Trimmer that can complete the perfect binding line with high trimming quality.
In conclusion, the Müller Martini Pantera Adhesive Binder is an excellent choice for those who need an entry-level binder for small to medium-sized jobs.
