June 13, 2002 -- The extensive know-how of Heidelberg is reflected in a wide range of products and components for the most diverse of finishing applications. The latest addition to this range is the Ti 55 Proline inline buckle plate folder. This unit folds personalized print sheets or continuous paper quickly and inexpensively, without any need for intermediate stacking or new feeds. The user thus benefits from an innovative solution that enables him to offer services such as direct mailshots or print-on-demand. This folder is equally ideal for digital printers and conventional printshops.
On sheetfed presses, the print sheets are fed directly to the folder, where they are straightened and folded. A sheeter cuts the sheets from web presses, whereupon they are then sent to the folder. Alternatively, web products can be wound back onto a reel, fed by the unwind unit to the sheeter for cutting. They are then folded inline.
The inline folder can be shipped with four or six buckle plates and can easily be extended with a second or third station. All Stahlfolder delivery systems can be used to boost production and quality. Additional inline processes such as gluing, gatefolding, cutting or scoring enhance the inline folder’s capabilities and also add value to the end product.
