About the Magnum MC-35A Automated Creasing Machine
The Magnum MC-35A is a revolutionary new addition to the UK Creasing Market. Designed from the ground up with short run digital in mind the Magnum MC-35A incorporates ultra quick setup via the integrated and intuitive LCD Display. A unique slide in and out crease rule matrix assembly allows the Magnum MC-35A to offer both positive and negative crease by simply inverting the tool. The same mechanism also allows for the crease tool to be removed and replaced with the optional Cross Punch Perforation tool which allows for programmable cross sheet perforation to be applied in a variety of formats from 8 to 48 TPi.
The unique rear tool belt which houses the pressure adjustable out feed rollers as standard can also be fitted with a host of optional linear tools, these include full length linear rotary perforation (8, 12, 24 and 52 TPi available), Rotary Creasing (Ideal for tall menus or longer sheets that cannot be creased using a matrix rule), Rotary Slitting which allows the fast and ultra clean removal of margin bleed without impacting on production which can also save time or even take work away from the guillotine. The Magnum MC-35A also offers a Kiss Cutting rotary tool which can be set for varying paper widths and is ideal for the production of stickers or labels which can be printed on sticky back paper via a standard desktop office printer.
The Magnum MC-35A has also been fitted with a new and innovative technology which is exclusive to the Magnum range with a Patent Protection to keep it exclusive to this model. The technology created is known as Progressive Crease and Sniper, both of which come as standard on the MC-35A. The Progressive Crease technology allows you to create both a perfect Squareback Book or a Layflat Photo Book or album by simply entering a few parameters in to the machine display. The Magnum MC-35A can then incrementally increase or decrease or Increase/Decrease or Decrease/Increase the Crease Positions on the fly, this creates a V or incrementally line on the booklet or pile being produced. This V or angled crease line then allows the formation of either a SquareBack spine or a completely layflat document, the latter is ideal when partnered with one of our Perfect Binding machines.
The Sniper Technology offers a fully automated setup without the need for a program or operator to enter any data. The Sniper Camera built in to the machine tooling assembly can read tick marks automatically, simply place a tick mark where you wish to apply each crease on your document, the machine then creases precisely at this position without any additional information being entered. The unique advantage of this technology is two-fold, not only can you stack different crease requirement jobs on to the 100 mm pile feeder and leave the MC-35A to finish the work and move the creasing position automatically without an operator but, the Sniper Technology also compensates for image drift (up and down the sheet) and any shrinkage or stretching of your work during the print process. In conclusion is perfects the creasing position and perfectly matches the crease placement to the data you have entered into your design software and therefore printer.
Why buy the Magnum MC-35A? For business owners
The Magnum MC-35A offers business owners a low cost high speed automated solution to the common problem of fiber cracking on digital media. Primarily aimed to partner light to mid volume production digital presses but with its ability to produce up to 54 A4 sheets per minute, without an operator, it can also easily keep pace with high volume production digital printing & lithographic presses.
The Magnum MC-35A incorporates the very latest technology in progressive creasing, automated operator-less setup and cut mark recognition on the fly. These unique and patented features ensure all types of requirements, volumes and finishes can be completed with ease and above all accuracy without the need for a dedicated, trained operator. The further advantage of the Sniper Technology is the fact it also counters image drift and image stretch which all other crease machine manufacturers simply cannot offer, this further secures your finished products accuracy without the necessary need for a high end Cutter Creaser with full camera technology.
The versatility of the Magnum MC-35A has the ability to further enhance your routes to market and therefore add extra revenue streams for your business. The inclusion of the Magnum Multi-Tool belt which allows you to add the optional pressure adjustable linear tools for rotary perforation, rotary score, rotary kiss cut and guillotine quality rotary slit ensure even complex jobs normally outsourced can be brought in house. The addition of the slide in high quality tooling also enables the system to produce cross punch perforation in both a continuous pattern for the full width of the sheet being processed or as fully customized stop or skip perforation by simply trimming the perforation comb to suit the application. As the slide in tools can be controlled via the LCD display or using the Sniper Technology you can be assured of absolute accuracy no matter what the requirement. Most businesses choose to purchase a number of perforation combs which can then be cut down to create bespoke customer requirements which further ties the customer to your business and improves the relationship with your client. The cross skip perforation feature is particularly effective when paired with the Linear Rotary Perforation Tools which snap fit to the rear tool belt, this combination allows for quite complex perforation to be completed in house without any special training or requirements other than the extra tools for the Magnum machinery.
The Magnum MC-35A is infinitely flexible, easy to setup, fast and reliable and will make a difference to your production speeds and quality of finished product without impacting on your production space.
