CardXtra Plus:
The CardXtra Plus has been manufactured to meet the needs of the growing number of digital printers who have asked for a highly accurate, low cost, easy to use multifunctional finishing device that can slit, cut and crease. With run lengths becoming shorter and jobs being personalised or printed with no overs it is essential to have an accurate, easy to use reliable finishing system; and that is exactly what the CardXtra Plus is.

It can feed sheets up to SRA3 in size and can trim, cut and crease in multiple positions. The accuracy of the new CardXtra Plus is the best available in the market with an accuracy of +/- 0.1mm which makes it significantly better than that of many more expensive units.

The addition of a unique registration mark allows the machine to track the image as opposed to the sheet edge, making it perfect for the digital environment. The versatile CardXtra Plus has the ability to take SRA3 sheets, trim them to A3 and crease them to produce finished A4 4 page brochures. Equally easily it can finish the job to A4 which can then be creased to make 4 page A5 leaflets or multiple creases for a wide variety of applications. The options are endless and with the million cut guarantee, the CardXtra Plus will be serving your business for
many years to come. The CardXtra Plus comes with three cutters as standard.

DocuMaster MFC
With today’s increased demand for high quality finished documents, Morgana are pleased to introduce the DocuMaster MFC. This is the latest in the DocuMaster range,
designed to eliminate tedious and time consuming operations by creasing the sheets as part of the feeding and booklet making operation.

With multiple feed stations, the design allows for feeding of specialised covers and booklet inside pages from separate feed bins while still allowing for creasing of cover,
centre or all pages of the book. The Documaster MFC incorporates the new ‘DYNATILT creasing system which automatically registers each sheet and adjusts the mechanism
to ensure an accurate crease position every time.

Creasing of covers, centre spreads or indeed all sheets in the book if needed, is simply programmed into the high definition touch screen control unit. Simplicity of operation
is key to finishing digitally printed work. Today’s on demand culture means run lengths are smaller and turnaround times are becoming shorter and shorter.

Controlled by a high definition touch panel, the DocuMaster MFC is given full instructions as to the book size, amount of pages and crease position etc. All settings and
adjustments are made using the high definition touch panel so operation couldn’t be simpler. An alpha numeric memory allows an unlimited number of jobs to be stored and
named as you choose. This makes job recall much easier as you can use your own job name and numbers for storage.

The DocuMaster MFC is ergonomically designed so that it can be loaded (on the run) and unloaded very easily from one position. The footprint is unusually small for a booklet-making system and it will fit into even the smallest of printrooms. The DocuMaster MFC utilises the latest advances in paper feed modules. These modules can be specified as suction feed only or suction and friction feed to a maximum of 4 separate feed stations. The paper is fed from these units using a centre reference sheet guide system and smart detection for sheet integrity.
