Did you see our Facebook live video just before Christmas? For those of you who haven’t we have been busy installing our latest technology upgrade… A new Horizon folding line!
Folding may not be the most exciting prospect (be honest!) But the technology now involved makes folding paper rather interesting… We have been appraising folding machines in recent months – with a view to investing in a more automated system that would reduce lead times, remove the possibility of marks or bruises on the paper and execute very complex folding patterns.
This led us back to our favourite technology from Japan, Horizon finishing equipment – though our friends at Intelligent Finishing Systems The Horizon Folding Line delivers completely automated setup – as well as increased running speeds. The software brings the efficiency with hundreds of preloaded folding patterns for quick setup, we literally populate the sizes and paper thickness and setup is complete.
Installed in December and also came with several days training the new folder is up and running and already delivering a much enhanced production service.
A brief overview of benefits for you are:
17 different folding patterns (Inc Gate Fold)
Zero roller marks on finished product
High running speeds
Crisp and firm folds
If you have a great challenge for our new folder give us a call!
