The Morgana DigiBook 450 on the company’s stand cycles at 450 books per hour, making it the most productive model in the new range, which also includes the DigiBook 150 and DigiBook 300.
The line-up was first shown as a prototype at Drupa 2012, and Morgana’s Andy Cooper said the first saleable machines landed in Australia in time for PacPrint.
“We got them into the showroom three or four weeks ago, and have take a couple of orders already, which is quite pleasing.”
He said one of the DigiBook’s main advantages was its closed nozzle system, which replaces the traditional open tank system. This made it a less expensive and easier to operate, so users could keep short runs in-house rather than send them out to a specialist.
Cooper added that one of the new customers was actually a trade finisher looking to add digital to its offering.
Morgana is also using PacPrint to launch the Spanish-made Bagel DigiFav single-sided celloglazer. The DigiFav runs at a maximum speed of 22 metres per minute, producing up to 1,800 B2 sheets per hour. It can take stocks from 130-350gsm.
The laminator has already won several clients since its soft launch earlier this year.
