Canadian print finishing leader Sydney Stone, headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario, the Distributor of Morgana equipment across Canada, has just announced the latest product launch from the United Kingdom’s leading manufacturer of digital print finishing equipment – the next-generation Morgana DigiFold Pro 385 Creaser/Folder and the Morgana AutoCreaser Pro 385.

Since 1951, Sydney Stone’s focus has beeen on the short-run and medium-run printing market. It offers numerous cost-effective solutions to the challenges found in this specific segment.

One of the key changes from previous DigiFold models is the introduction of a high-capacity vacuum top-feeder that can take a sheet pile of over 17.7.” Once the size and thickness of stock are entered, all other feeder functions – including air and vacuum settings, side-guide positions and fold-roller gaps – are automatically adjusted for quick and easy set-up of jobs. Stocks up to .4 mm can be creased and folded with virtually no cracking of the sheets or the toner on them. Another new feature, Morgana DynaCrease, has dual creasing blades that can handle creasing and folding applications at over 6,000 sheets per hour. Another new feature, its Creasing-Only Mode, allows the widest range of applications to be produced on one single machine.

“The DigiFold has long been the benchmark product in the creaser/folder sector,” said Ray Hillhouse, VP of Sales & Marketing at Morgana. “With the improvements in speed and productivity for the current crop of digital print engines, Morgana needs to provide an additional option for our customers. After surveying our DigiFold users, we’ve been able to address what they need as their digital production grows. The AutoCreaser is still our best-selling machine and the new Pro 385 will take us into higher-volume applications with a heavier duty machine,” he added.

Improved productivity

“Some of our customers had been using the previous-generation machines for longer runs of offset or digital work. This new model will enable them to load the pile feeder and let the machine run,” said Michael Steele, Managing Director of Sydney Stone. “The high level of automation here is going to greatly benefit business owners with a goal of maximizing efficiency while producing output of unparalleled quality.”

The AutoCreaser’s dual creasing blade and matrix is particularly effective for producing covers for perfect binding where the spine and hinge creases can be produced in one pass, or for users who change creasing profiles regularly. The new AutoCreaser Pro 385 can run at up to 8,500 sheets per hour.
