Innovative operating concept
We have included a number of proven technological features in the Prinova from its “big brother“, the Primera. It has central operation. Its new user interface, which includes context-based displays and an innovative operating concept, increases the machine’s user-friendliness – which, in turn, shortens the processes. “The fact that all settings are made centrally on a large touch screen instead of selectively is a great advantage,” said Yannick Bucher, who put the Prinova through its paces for six months.
Speaking of user-friendliness and process shortening: we have made a number of processrelated improvements on the new three-knife trimmer. For example, the thickness is now conveniently set using a quick-release lever. As a result, the changeover process is now even faster and easier, and top quality is ensured right from the first product. In addition, stationary belts (servo drive) ensure perfect trim quality. Because it can be opened from the front or the back, this extremely ergonomic three-knife trimmer can be set up much more quickly.
New Asir Pro Camera System
In addition to Motion Control Technology, which results in faster set-up processes, the new Prinova saddle stitcher also includes our new developed Asir Pro camera system. This system recognizes and compares the sections using a 1D/2D code and/or by comparing the images. As a result, end products containing errors are now a thing of the past. “We used the camera system without a problem during the Prinova test phase at our company,” Yannick Bucher confirmed. Since his company often has products with language changes, a reliable control system is, of course, particularly important to him.
If you work with conventional printing methods, are active in digital printing, or are planning to enter the digital printing market in the near future, the Prinova with its good price/performance ratio is the ideal saddle stitcher for you. That‘s because as a digital-ready system, it is prepared for the digital transformation and can in the future be expanded to process digital printing jobs. This means, you are equipped to face the new challenges of the future, which will provide you with a high level of investment security.
