A typical problem when processing digital prints or other delicate material is the cracking of the toner layer along the fold line, which has a negative effect on the quality. Creasing along the fold line can considerably reduce or even avoid this phenomenon. For these applications MB Bäuerle has developed the Creasing System WF-D2H high pile. With the creasing technology used in this system, the material is gently compressed, because the excessive stretching of the paper fibres is avoided. This principle prevents cracking of the printing ink or tearing of the paper, thus ensuring optimal after-print processing.
The machine is of modular design and consists of the following components:
- Flat pile feeder 52-SL NET
- Alignment table ART 52
- Creasing and perforating machine WF-D2H
The flat pile feeder allows a high stacking capacity of the material to be processed. The alignment of the sheets prior to the creasing process also ensures utmost accuracy in final finishing. The double head drive system of the creasing machine makes it possible to perform two processing steps inline (for instance creasing and perforating). The creasing and perforating system offers maximum operator convenience combined with minimum set-up times due to the intelligent machine control, the operation via a centrally located touch screen operator panel with integrated job memory and the high degree of automation. It is therefore ideal for the further processing of digital prints.
The high-performance system for creasing and perforating features a high degree of operator convenience combined with short set-up times. It is therefore ideal for the efficient handling of digital printing products.
