Production of magazines

Magazines of varying page count are produced on a Presto II Digital saddle stitcher from Müller Martini. A UW8 unwind module will roll-feed the printed web into a high-performance CS8 cross-cutting module. The DynaCut function will allow signatures with varying page counts to be produced. The signatures are then folded in a buckle fold machine and saddle stitched on the saddle stitcher at a web speed of up to 180 meters per minute.
