Booklet Makers
Introducing two booklet makers with specifications unmatched in the mid-range.
Plockmatic International
Plockmatic International develops, manufactures and markets an extensive
range of document finishing systems sold under the Plockmatic and Morgana
brand names. These products work inline or offline in concert with the world’s
best digital printing systems. We make booklets. We also mail, fold, crease,
perforate and bind documents with extraordinary precision. Quite simply, we
turn stacks of printed paper into the beautifully finished documents you use
every day.
The Plockmatic PBM500/350
The Plockmatic 500/350 is a modular in-line booklet making solution for centralized reproduction
departments and commercial print providers - large and small. Customers can choose from a range of costeffective options to support their application requirements. The system is packed with a host of unique
technologies that deliver finished books with quality to match today’s printing systems.
Customers are demanding more media versatility from digital print. The Plockmatic 500/350 is designed
from the ground up to work with today’s coated, uncoated and textured paper stocks.
Plockmatic works closely with print engine manufacturers and workflow partners to ensure the closest
possible integration of the booklet making system. This supports ease of use and allows operators of
different skill levels to get the most out of the entire printing system.
