With options ranging from table-top to small format Pharma and full size (29.1” x 43.3”) folders, we have whatever folder you might need. With our full range of automation, folding can be a profitable part of your finishing operation.
Automation is the key word! Imagine one sheet of paper being used to gap an entire system. Imagine making all gate adjustments from the touch screen. Enter a sheet size, pick a fold pattern from pre-set or memory, and the system sets itself in seconds. It’s widely accepted that the average time spent on setting up an older, manual folder is 45 minutes. Complicated jobs such as a map fold can take 1-2 hours to set up. With our automation, that job is up and running in a couple minutes and the waste factor is slashed as well! The labor savings realized by this technology makes for a quick return on the investment.
