Wilson Press & Mail House, Seneca Falls, New York State, USA, “the one-stop shop for design, print and mail”, became the latest printer to install a Morgana BM5050 booklet maker, manufactured by Morgana Systems Ltd, a Plockmatic International post-press product business, in March 2023.

The Need

Whilst the company was already using an inline booklet maker, there was a demand for additional booklet making that was not governed by the speed of the print engine. An offline booklet maker would provide for both additional capacity and the ability to bind jobs for those print engines not coupled to a dedicated binder.

“The Morgana system is so user friendly. This system allows us to provide improved job turnaround times. Our team like the ease of use of the BM5050. Its menu driven via the user touch screen, and it presents the operator with straightforward logical choices when setting up the job.”

Rick adds: “With typical production runs of about 2,000 copies, the BM5050 just whizzes through the work, meaning that our turnaround times for jobs have been reduced. Our finishing department is just delighted with the binder.”

The Result

The new system at Wilson Press was installed and ready for action from early 2023. With regard to the arrival of the new booklet maker, Rick Ricci said: “We have been familiar with Morgana equipment for some time, so when we were looking to an offline booklet making machine, they were an obvious place for us to look.

Work produced at Wilson Press on the new booklet maker can now include the square-back finish – when a wire-stitched booklet can take on the appearance of a perfect bound product.

Typical throughput at Wilson Press is focused on a core business of designing, printing, and mailing.

Operators can now also compensate for the skew caused when feeding long sheets with a simple adjustment in the user interface, on the fly. Wilson Press can now produce SquareFold booklets in sizes from 4.1 x 5.8” to Letter-sized Landscape, or in the larger Letter-square-format (297 x 297mm).
