Optional equipment

Folding machines with supplementary equipment for a large variety of applications.

Mailings and other complex products can be produced profitably with standard folding machines whose application range is extended by means of supplementary equipment. Folding machines that are equipped with gluing devices and timed heads for perforating and cutting as well as further modules are quickly ready for this type of applications. The advantage is that these machines cannot only be used for specific applications, but also for all common jobs.

MB Bäuerle offers various technical possibilities and detailed solutions specifically for these applications.


Mobile knife fold unit MS 45

Knife fold unit for making crossfolds. Mobile and continuously height adjustable.
Suitable for linking to the first or second buckle fold unit
Knife fold unit rotates by 180°, making it possible to fold from top or bottom.

Infeed height max. 45 cm / min. 12 cm
Infeed length max. 33 cm / min. 10 cm


Additional fold unit KF 31

Attachable fold unit with 2 fold plates. Increases fold variability.With the KF 31, two fold plates can be added to a standard fold unit, which means a larger variety of folds. Makes small folds possible.The small roller diameter allows small folds down to 18 mm. Therefore the KF 31 is especially suitable for folding pharmaceutical leaflets.

Infeed height max. 31 cm
Fold length max. 11 cm / min. 1.8 cm


Gluing device / Antistatic device

Gluing devices extend the range of applications for folders. 8-, 12- or 16-page ready-to-mail leaflets or inserts can thus be produced. Other applications are fold-in pockets for leaflets and photos, lottery tickets or postcards.
Antistatic devices are used for discharging static charge to ground. Thus statically charged material (digitally printed) can be folded without any significant interruptions.


Two-up crossfold attachment

The two-up crossfold attachment consists of slitting tools in the first fold unit, a special transfer bridge and two parallel alignment rails on the roller table of the second fold unit. Sheets which have been printed two-up are cut, deposited on the roller table via the transfer bridge, aligned side by side and transferred to the second fold unit.


Interface IF 52

Mobile transfer unit for single sheets. By adjusting the height and angle, paper can be transported between modules with different infeed and outfeed heights.

Transfer height: min. 80 cm max. 120 cm


Software module for automatic setting via barcode reading

With this module it is possible to demonstrate how the machine sets itself automatically by means of barcodes that have been read in.


Timed head module

with tiltable support for timed cutting, perforating and gluing.


Pharmaceutical fold unit for minimum fold lengths

With this auxiliary equipment it is possible to create products with a minimum fold length of 28 mm.
