Morgana Creasing And Folding System Enhances Productivity

The Morgana DigiFold Pro XL is designed to complement the long sheet capabilities enabled in production printers. It features a standard pull-out extension that enables sheet sizes up to 1300mm to be handled with ease. Borehamwood-based digital print company Kellmatt Limited has upgraded its Morgana DigiFold Pro to the latest DigiFold Pro XL.

Matt Weir, Kellmatt Limiteddirector said, ‘It was a straightforward decision for us to upgrade to the latest version. We have been a Morgana user for 20-years-plus, and most of our post-press equipment comes from them, so there was no need to look elsewhere. Morgana equipment is solidly built and has served us very well over that time.’

‘The cross-perforation capability was the major attraction. We had been sending that kind of work out, so this machine will put back control in our hands, save production time and save us money. The ability of the machine to handle long sheets came a close second as far as features. We run a Xerox iGen and an Iridesse, so the fact that we can handle 660mm long sheets is important, or up to 1200mm for special products. It’s another feature for us to sell and for our in-house design team to promote.’

The wholly digital business was formed some 30 years ago and includes large format production as well as the Xerox digital presses, some monochrome printers for variable data printing, and a graphic design studio. The company started life in the print world by producing self-adhesive labels, then morphed into a reprographics company, producing Cromalin proofs for high-end graphics customer, and then became early adopters of digital print.

With regard to working through the pandemic, Weir added, ‘When it happened we suddenly realised just how many of our customers were in the hospitality sector, and how much work that sector generated. We turned our hand fairly swiftly to the production and supply of PPE product.’

The Morgana DigiFold Pro XL is built with a unique, open design and a suction feeder that handles stock sizes from 210mm to 1300mm in length. This heavy-duty automatic creasing and folding system is designed to complement mid-to-high volume digital and offset production presses. This top of the range model folds up to 6000 A4 per hour or in ‘crease only’ mode, 7500 per hour.

It has a maximum loading capacity 200mm and a stock range of 80 to 400gsm. The top-fed vacuum feeder, ensures stable production for long runs. Full cross perforation is also available, along with the ability to add up to five inline perforation/scoring wheels. The machine is able to create up to 30 creases per sheet.
