About the Magnum MC-35 Semi Automated Creasing Machine
The Magnum MC-35 Semi Automated Card Creasing and Perforating machines have been designed to bridge the gap between the desktop Electric Card Creasers such as the Magnum MCR-35E and the more automated and versatile Magnum MC-35A range.
Designed using the same tools as the fully automated MC-35A but with a more simplified crease and perforation tool which comes in two parts instead of a complete unit. The linear tools for slitting, perforating, rotary score and kiss cutting on the output bar are also fixed to the output rollers instead of being individual pieces with pressure adjustments for each tool. However, do not be fooled by the fact that a few features have been changed, after all this is still a Magnum machine so the internals are all taken from the higher volume models in order to keep manufacturing costs at a minimum.
As with all the desktop Magnum range the Magnum MC-35 incorporates an intuitive LCD Display with 30 program memory for instant setup. All program features remain the same across the range so the Magnum MC-35 can still offer multiple creases in each pass, up to 32 crease positions can be programmed. The crease pressure is also infinitely adjustable via a simple adjustment of the tool height under the crease bar cover.The slide out tool function remains but with the simplified tooling which is easier to manufacture and therefore keeps the overhead down on this lighter weight model. However the Magnum MC-35 is still the exact same format, build and operating mechanism as those found in the larger machines, even up to the MCC-35 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser/Perforator models. This ensures the Magnum MC-35 can cope with your daily demands no matter how large or small.
The output tool belt on the rear of the Magnum MC-35 can still house a choice of 8 or 12 TPi Rotary Perforation blades which although are not pressure adjustable still provide a reliable method of applying a continuous perforation down your sheet whilst also applying up to 32 creases. The blades are fitted to the output drive wheels using the Grub Screws which are easily adjusted using the Allen Key set which comes with the MC-35. The perforation tools are bolted to the perforating blade and the anvil receiver, both assemblies are half moon shapes and come as pairs, this allows the tools to be easily fitted whilst also keeping manufacturing costs low. Each output drive roller has the ability to accept the Perforation Blades and Anvils on both the left and right hand side, therefore you can actually fit up to 8 perforation tools.
Why buy the Magnum MC-35? For business owners
The Magnum MC-35 offers business owners a low cost efficient bridge between manually operated slow machinery and high speed fully automated solutions that may not be needed in your environment. As with all the Magnum range they have been designed to remove the common problem of fibre cracking on digital media. Primarily aimed to partner light to mid volume production digital presses but with its ability to produce up to 30 A4 sheets per minute can also be partnered to more powerful print machinery.
In most cases print companies who are looking for a machine with this specification simply require a super fast & efficient machine setup tied to an accurate easy to use desktop solution. Ideally suited to low volume on-demand production runs or to partner a more powerful automated creasing solution that may be either too costly or too slow to configure for such low volumes. Our Magnum series also allows multiple quick turn-around jobs to be completed quickly with virtually instantaneous job switch-over and make ready.
The Magnum MC-35 has been developed for business owners who need to empower operators within the digital print environment to quickly produce smaller and smaller volumes with ease. If your business simply needs a reliable creasing and linear perforating solution to speed up an area of your business that is often seen as a bottle neck then the Magnum MC-35 is the choice for you.
The Magnum models are ultra-reliable, flexible, easy to setup and efficient card creasing and perforating solutions for sheet sizes up to 350mm in width, they have the ability to create high quality finishes that will make a difference to your on-demand capabilities without impacting on your production space.
Why buy the Magnum MC-35? For operators
The Magnum MC-35 incorporates an intuitive LCD display panel with touch button controls and memory function for up to 30 jobs for instant recall. The MC-35 has the ability to operate at two speeds, slow and fast, this ensures all stock types can be fed and completed with ease, the Magnum MC-35 is ideal for lower crease volumes or for basic rotary perforating requirements.
The Magnum MC-35 offers a semi-auto hand feed programmable creasing solution but, don’t let that fool you in to thinking it is more lightweight in use. The feed may be simplified but the internal architecture is taken directly from the larger machines allowing these entry level compact solutions to cope with all your demands, large or small. A further benefit of hand fed systems is their ability to run quite often a wider range of materials than the more automated machinery, for some this is actually beneficial. Hand feeding does not really have a minimum gsm allowance or issues with static meaning it can handle more awkward stocks that an Air Feed can, on occasion, struggle with.
The integrated Spine Crease technology allows the operator to instantly create a Spine & Hinge Crease to partner perfect binding machinery, the operator simply enters the first crease position and spine width, the Software within the Swift automatically calculates the positions for all 4 creases. The spine is creased either side at the fold position and the hinge is created at 8 mm from each spine, ideal for Perfect Bound Book Covers.
Simplified tooling and capability with hand fed operation can also mean less changeovers and therefore an even quicker to setup for operators. Furthermore, the integrated crease rule matrix can be infinitely adjusted for more or less pressure enabling it to cope with a huge array of products and materials.
