The S45 small folding machine is suitable for the production of short folded sheets. The machine is available in a predefined configuration. However, the choice of continuous or flat pile feeder is available.
By dispensing with machine variants, production can be cheap and fast and many customers will be happy about short delivery times. The package includes the feeder, the first and second folding units, the transfer unit and the vertical delivery.
The extra-long 1.4m (55”) alignment table in front of the first folding unit ensures reliable alignment of the sheet. The register table can be equipped with a camera system for code reading at a later date.
The highlight of the machine is the new transfer unit between the first and second folding units. It is permanently installed on the folding unit and has a sliding function. This ensures ergonomic access to the slitter shafts. The rear part of the transfer unit can also be moved so that a positioning adjustment to the side lay of the cross fold unit is easy. This eliminates the inconvenience of moving the subsequent units back and forth when the format is changed, which shortens changeover times and saves space in the production environment.
The S45 has a working width of 45cm (17 ¾”). The fold roller diameter of 32mm (1 ¼”) allows for a shortest fold length of 25mm (1”). The first folding unit is equipped with eight new types of buckle plates that allow for all adjustment work without removing the buckle plates. This saves changeover time. The second folding unit is mobile and equipped with four buckle plates. It allows for operation as a cross fold or even in parallel behind the first folding unit. Both folding units of the S45 are equipped with a low-noise and low-maintenance belt drive, which significantly reduces maintenance costs.
The S45 package is completed with the included vertical stacker delivery, which also includes a marking function. With the S45, customers receive a rapidly available, complete small folding unit at a low price. The machine can be equipped with various peripherals, such as a press, a labelling unit or a parallel knife folding unit.
