Creative ideas are constantly generating new forms of print materials. Innovative finishing solutions are a necessity, also as far as folding is concerned. This means that folding systems must be versatile. They process printing products from black+white or inkjet full colour printers as well as products based on the conventional printing technology. Flexibility, variability, short set-up times as well as online applications are therefore in high demand. MB Bäuerle offers the professional equipment for optimal production. Depending on the individual requirements, a wide range of modules can be combined to form different system machines. The technical base for this are individual components of the fully automatic prestigeFOLD NET line of folding machines.
Typical applications vary from simple information sheets to creative mailings with options for code reading, fold gluing, signature production, technical documentation and newspapers. MB Bäuerle has developed different mobile fold units for these fields of application. The fold units can be combined to customer-specific solutions together with upstream or downstream processing units from other manufacturers.
In the context of a customer order, MB Bäuerle has developed a fully automatic selective folding system for a variety of applications. The use of so-called selective fold plates makes it possible to process products with different format lengths. Thanks to the mobile cut sheet transfer unit IF 52, the fold unit can also be easily connected with other components. The adjustability of height and angle of inclination allows paper transport between processing units with different infeed and outfeed heights.
