Two New Ways to Double the Yield on Folding Machines
MONTAGUE, NJ—05/01/08—Imagine folding and trimming cover stocks or multi-panel brochures 2 or 3 up on a folder, effectively doubling the yield (or better.) Conventional folding machine wisdom has it that achieving guillotine quality trimming or die quality creasing (scoring) is just not possible.
Yet for the past four years, Technifold’s Multi-Tool & EZ-Fit Tri-Creaser have been doing just that in thousands of shops, radically reducing run times on the folder by providing in-line guillotine quality cutting, working together with the Tri-Creaser to produce letterpress quality creasing. This year at Drupa they will be introducing the next generation of Multi-Tool and Tri-Creaser to provide more flexibility and faster turnaround for nearly any size bindery department.
The Multi-Tool Combo Package incorporates simultaneous cutting, perfing or creasing in one tool, and in any of 7 formats:
* Micro-Perforating and Trimming from 3/16” (5mm) apart. . .(perf to cut distance) great for CD trays and similar jobs
* Slitting and Creasing from 3/8” (10mm) apart (cut to crease distance)
* Double Cutting (center trims) from 1/8” (3mm) apart
* Precision Edge-Trimming
* Double Micro-Perforating from 1/8” (3mm) apart (perf to perf)
* Single Creasing
* Micro-Perforating and Creasing from 3/16” (5mm) apart (perf to crease distance)
The popular EZ-Fit Tri-Creaser has evolved into the next generation Fast-Fit Tri-Creaser, also being introduced at Drupa. In a time-critical world, the Fast-Fit makes folder setup even faster by totally eliminating the need to pull slitter shafts to change crease settings. The Fast-Fit retains all the patented Tri-Creaser design features which eliminate fiber cracking on a wide range of paper, regardless of grain direction.
