    Gear-driven, wide-format GUK FA73 Folder:

    • Folds lightweight pharmaceutical sheets up to 28-3/4" (73 cm) wide—providing up to 38% more copy space than sheets folded on GUK FA53 Folders.
    • It is ideal for folding consumer information leaflets and med-guides and can be used as Station I in MV OUtsert Systems. 
    • Setups and changeovers on the FA73 are quick and easy with caliper-set rollers and the new-style zero makeready plates with time-saving drop-in deflectors. Fold lengths are simply set by digital dials.
    • When triggered by the double-sheet detection device on the feeder, pneumatic mechanisms on each side of the folder activate the ejection gate and double sheets are ejected before entering the folding rollers. Production continues uninterrupted.

     

    Advanced Features:

    • The new hinge-style ZWT7 3/4 Transfer Unit streamlines the transfer of products from Station I to Station II and eases setup and changeovers. 

    • Flat belts move products more effectively.

    • A quick turn of the knobs will adjust the exit point for placing product on the roller table.

    • The roller table which receives and moves products from the transfer unit to Station II, is split to allow the carrier rollers to be laterally adjusted, making it easier to align the product precisely.

    • The hinge-style ZWT73/4 can be maneuvered to allow access to the scoring shafts, and in the gear-driven FA73 Folder, the shafts can be rolled out for easy adjustment.

     

    Versatility:

    • The FA73 is available with 12 or 16 plates. 

    • The addition of a Station II (and III) to the FA73's wide width will give you the ability to produce many fold patterns, sizes, and shapes for med-guides, patient and consumer information leaflets.

    • The FA73 can be used as the primary folder for MV Outsert Systems.
