Automated parallel fold unit with 4 or 6 buckle plates​

The parallel fold unit is available with either 4 or 6 buckle plates, depending on your requirements. ​

Buckle plate stops, folding angles, and folding roller gaps can all be adjusted automatically. The spindle buckle plates permit extremely precise adjustment of all stops. Specific settings can be saved and called up again at any time. The folding machine is operated via a centrally mounted touchscreen with an intuitive user interface.

The parallel folding unit is followed by a pair of slitter shafts. The slitter shaft lift shown is available as an option.

The product-specific buckleplate settings - width, lower lip position and pre-tensioning - can be conveniently adjusted from the outside and synchronously from one side without having to stop the machine.

One-of-a-kind cross-fold unit in KTL design

The cross-fold unit of the Stahlfolder KH 82 offers first-class folding technology thanks to numerous patented features**. For example, the integrated sheet stop ensures outstanding folding quality, even at high production speeds and with delicate papers. This cross-fold unit's level of automation is the highest of all Stahlfolder combination folders.

Most popular fold types can be realized using the two knife-folding units and the horizontal buckle plate after the first knife-folding unit.

Connect your production

The Stahlfolder KH 82 has standard and optional networking capabilities that help you improve transparency and simplify production control.

For the digital connection, you have the choice between the Prinect workflow connection or the Postpress Data Ready production data acquisition system. Increase your flexibility with both systems through higher planning accuracy and always keep an eye on your machine performance data.​

In addition, with the electric tablet preparation you can operate the settings of your folding machine from any position in your production.

Pick the right delivery for you

You can choose the optional delivery from our entire portfolio.​

For smaller runs, for example, the SPH 70 stream delivery with press function is an adequate solution. For longer runs, we recommend the SBP 66 upright delivery or the palamides alpha hd 50 automatic pile delivery. The latter is the right choice if you are planning to combine your folding machine with the Stahlfolder P-Stacker autonomous stacking system.
