A - Features


Zero-makeready plates are set up to fold or deflect with a turn of a dial. They are made of durable chromium-plated steel for anti-static operation and long wear.

B - Features

QUICK CALIPER-SET FOLDING ROLLERS  Insert paper in the caliper device, and the roller pressure is automatically adjusted. Rotating on needle and axial bearings, the large diameter folding rollers allow you to fold heavier stock such as greeting cards.

  • Feeders






    • The FL2 FLAT-PILE FEEDER feeds sheets up to 33-3/8" (85 cm) in length with its Rear Separating Feed System. 
    • The long alignment table ensures accurate registration.
    • Variable sheet-spacing control makes it easy to setup for special folding applications.
    • Pile height is 25-1/2" (65 cm) with automatic height adjustment.


      • Suction heads (1) lift the sheets.
      • Air blasts (2) aerate and separate the sheets, making it possible to feed long or difficult-to-handle sheets.





      The Rear Separating Feed System is hinged to lift up and out of the way for loading the paper.


    The drum suction wheel (1), shielded by a safety cover, transfers the paper onto the registration table to the folding rollers.
    Optional side air blasts (2) aid in the consistent transfer of the sheets.A caliper-set double-sheet detector (3) stops the feeder when a miss-feed occurs.




    • Continuous-load SAF BOTTOM- SUCTION FEEDER has air channels in the side rails that separate and lift the sheets to allow the bottom-suction drum to draw the paper to the register table. 
    • An adjustable plate levels the feed edge of the paper to ease the transport of the paper onto the register table.
    • When the side guide is adjusted to the paper width, the feed belt automatically centers to convey the sheets over the anti-static stainless steel register table to the folding rollers in perfect registration.
    • The gap between sheets of paper can be controlled to allow for gluing or other applications.
    • The vacuum time on the sheets can be controlled to allow folding of stock as light as 27# offset.
    • A single control automatically synchronizes the speed of both the feeder and folder for smooth production.

    Heavy-duty commercial ZK500/ZK600 KNIFE FOLDING UNIT makes a final up or down cross fold.
    • It can also be used off-line for folding signatures, booklets (up to a 144-page, depending on stock), or any special commercial folding applications.



    MOBILE SHINGLE DELIVERY UNIT is for finished leaflets 
    of more than 3-3/4" in height. Folded products are delivered shingled-one overlapping the other.
    • It is height adjustable, tilt adjustable and has variable speed for better control of shingling the product. Two widths available: 13-3/4"; 21-1/4".
    • It is interchangeable with the Vertical-Stack Deliver Unit.



    The VERTICAL-STACK DELIVERY UNIT is for collecting miniature-size folded products.
    • Folded pieces are stacked upright for easy, orderly collection.
    • It has an independent motor drive.
    • A built-in ejector magnet (kicker), controlled by the MCS-106 Predetermined Counter, staggers pieces to mark batches.
    • Widths: #KS-235: 9-1⁄4"; #KS-310: 12-1⁄4"; and #KS-370: 14-5⁄8".

    Variable-speed TRANSFER UNIT aids in the transfer of the folded sheets from Station I to Station II and increases the accuracy of folding small pieces as well as extending the life of the rollers.

    EK300 KNIFE FOLDING UNIT is for the final fold of leaflets that are too small to be handled in the side guide of the right angle station or too thick for buckle folding down to 1-1/4".

    • It has a built-in vertical delivery unit and an optional ejector magnet (kicker) for separating a preset number of finished pieces.
