IDEAL FOR HIGH SPEED, HIGH-VOLUME folding of leaflets for the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and small novelties industries.
ASSURES INTEGRITY OF THE JOB by minimizing the possibility of leaflet mix-ups.
SAVES ON COSTS as roll paper is less expensive than cut sheets.
There is minimal paper waste because no trimming is required.
There is minimal product spoilage because there are no sheets to double or become misaligned. The result is fewer jams.
Sheeting is done automatically on-line.
RS42–RS21/880/2 Roll-Fed Plough Folding System…
This high-speed folding system, with two folders, is a great choice for installing onto packaging lines for cross-folding larger sheets.
The RS21/880/2 Folder attaches to the drive of the packaging line by chain or toothed belt.
The RS42 Folder has its own drive which is electronically synchronized with the RS21/880/2.
Set up is easy with caliper quick-set rollers and micrometer dials for fine tuning.
Rollers are belt-driven for quiet operation, low maintenance and long wear.
The plough folding system is pictured with a double-reel stand with a splicing station, feeding directly into the RS42 Roll-Fed Folder. A 90º angled floor mount is available. Seefloor mounts.
Plough folding on the RS42 Folder…
The paper is folded along the center of the length of the paper coming off the roll stand—forming the first fold before it is cut-to length.
A rotational brush and air jets cleans and directs the folded paper.
The folded paper is eased into a buffer loop between the two folders to alleviate tension problems in the transfer of the folded paper from the RS42 to the draw-off roller of the RS21/880/2. See illustration in Features.
The RS21/880/2 Folder has a universal draw-off roller. The length of the leaflet is entered by millimeters on the electronic control panel and the proper length is drawn by the draw-off roller.
When the length is confirmed by the electronic reading of the print mark on each leaflet, sheeting is automatically done by a rotary knife.
Cut-to-length folded sheets are transferred to the RS21/880/2 Folder for cross-folds.
Folded leaflet delivery is coordinated with the packaging line for inserting into cartons along with the product.
RS42–RS21/880/2 production speeds are up to 400 per minute, depending on the stock and sheet cut-off length.
Digital roller setting is available. SeeAccessories.
The folders can be equipped with a servo motor.
The RS21/880/2 can be equipped with a stand, motor, and delivery unit to accommodate off-line operation.
