The Vareo PRO binder and InfiniTrim trimmer represent today’s most automated book finishing line. Whether for medium, short, or ultra-short runs, right down to runs of one copy, the Vareo PRO is versatile and stands for outstanding binding quality. The InfiniTrim three-knife trimmer automatically trims short and ultra-short print runs down to one copy for all book sizes and thickness. This revolutionary system does not require manual operator intervention for a variety of production variations, thus guaranteeing an extremely high level of efficiency. The addition of this highly automated binding and trimming solution continues BR Printers’ strategic plan to supply their customers with the most advanced print and marketing services.
“This partnership with Muller Martini is a monumental milestone that I’ve eagerly anticipated throughout my career,” states Adam DeMaestri, CEO and President of BR Printers. “It not only is a significant milestone for BR Printers but also serves as a testament to the remarkable progress we’ve made over the past five years. My goal is to forge an exclusive partnership with Muller Martini to supply all future finishing equipment in our book lines, ensuring unparalleled quality and innovation.”
“It is an honor to partner with a company like BR Printers. We started a friendship built on a foundation of mutual respect and out of that we have now become partners in helping move both our organizations forward,” states Andy Fetherman, President, and CEO of Muller Martini Corp. in North America.
“The versatile Vareo PRO binder provides exceptional plug-and-play capabilities, offering a seamless integration process with our digital ability at BR Kentucky. The ability to run two binding lines with a single trimmer is a game-changer, eliminating a major bottleneck in the production process,” noted John Edwards, President of BR East. “Observing the line in action over the past few weeks has left a lasting impression. Watching 20 different books, each with unique shapes and sizes, effortlessly enter the line has been a truly delightful experience.”
“One of the standout features of the Vareo PRO installation is the InfiniTrim’s ability to efficiently trim off waste and achieve significant cost savings, contributing to a more sustainable print production process,” reported Greg Fredwest, Plant Manager of BR Kentucky. “Additionally, the equipment’s unique book pickup mechanism, which pulls the book from the spine instead of pushing it, ensures impeccable formatting and setup. This versatility allows for standardized operations, minimizing the need for extensive upfront changes and speeding up the implementation process.”
