Swiss precision at Brebner

The highly automated machine offers some of the latest technology in the industry. The Acoro is known for its rapid makeready and speed of production.

Among the mass of features is a unique trimmer that ensures a highly accurate cut. The knife comes in from the side and cuts perfectly square. This is a fully automatic part of the machine on makeready.

Servo drives are behind all the moving parts and a modem is installed which allows remote diagnosis, and even operation, of the machine from Muller Martini headquarters in Switzerland.

The Acoro is particularly effective in the area of spine preparation. Given that stock today is made up of so much more filler than paper, it is critical to get proper preparation on the spine, to ensure that glue gets right into the fibres.

The milling, levelling and notching of the spine on the Acoro is second to none. It ensures that fibres are teased out properly and able to accept the glue.

Brebner Print’s new Acoro operates at 5000 copies per hour. It also features a piece of Kiwi ingenuity among all the Swiss precision – a car rear vision mirror has been placed beneath the conveyor to allow operators to check the spine as the books pass above the mirror.
