The Stahlfolder Ti 36 and Ti 52 folding machines are a big solution in the small and medium-size format range. As flexible all-rounders with up to three folding stations and a maximum of six buckle plates, they convincingly meet a variety of requirements. They not only reliably cover a wide range of fold types, but can also handle challenging jobs involving complex folds with ease.
The Stahlfolder Ti 36 is designed for small formats and miniature folding applications such as mini booklets or packaging inserts for pharmaceutical products. The Stahlfolder Ti 52 meets your customers’ requirements in the medium-size format range with a wide variety of folding applications right through to multiple gluing operations.
Or take advantage of the benefits of both machines. Combining the Stahlfolder Ti 52 and Stahlfolder Ti 36 in a customized configuration gives you greater flexibility and allows you to also offer miniature folds in the medium-size format range. The machine is also easy to operate thanks to the clear control system with graphical symbols and a learning mode. It pays for you to be this versatile. With a small investment you can offer folded products with high added value. Your investment will quickly pay itself off on this basis. The prerequisite for long-term success.
Suitable feeder systems for any requirement
Flat pile feeder
The Fi flat pile feeder is especially suitable for small to medium runs and frequent job changes. The sheet separation by Airwing blowers and the two-hole-suction wheel with PU coating stand for high process reliability: The separated sheets are transferred to the alignment table reliably. The ball rail with prism rule secures an optimum sheet alignment and transfer to the first folding unit even with difficult landscape formats. The optional sheet separation device ensures an excellent productivity and easy operation. The automatic height scanning ensures effective sheet ventilation and compensates an unevenness of the sheet pile.
Round continuous feeder
The Ri round continuous feeder is designed for nonstop-operation and is suitable for larger circulations. It works continuously and without interrupting production thus increasing the daily production by more than 15 % compared to the flat pile feeder. Even sensible papers and pre-folded, pre-perforated or creased signatures can be processed.
Clear control with graphic symbols and functions
The control panel is located in the center of the feeder, by means of which all functions of the folder can be controlled and supervised. The operation of the complete machine network is done easily via a graphic surface with step-by-step-symbols and direct keys. Special functions like learning mode and counter enlarge the operation of the machine and make it easier to operate.
Variety of options to increase the added value
The Stahlfolder Ti folding machines can be operated as controlled production by image recognition from top and bottom. Various glue applications like center, multiple and auxiliary gluing increase the added value and give you the chance to enlarge your product range.
Buckle plate units and knife fold units for modular configuration
The Stahlfolder Ti folding machines can be configured individually of buckle plate stations and knife fold units in the working widths 36 cm and 52 cm. The buckle plate units are available with up to six buckle plates. The additional knife fold units KBi 36, KBi 52, and VFZ 52 offer further fold types.
Top folding accuracy and mark-free sheet guidance: the right folding roller technology for precise folding results
ExtraGrip folding roller technology
The distribution of steel and polyurethane rings of the ExtraGrip folding rollers is designed in such a way that there is no crossover of steel segments with two folding rollers lying parallel. At the same time the drag force is essentially raised due to the number of polyurethane rings which was increased by approx. 30 % per folding roller. The effect: The rings work exactly in paper running direction so that excellent fold accuracy and an exact straightforward guidance of the signatures is achieved. ExtraGrip folding rollers are available in two variants: as soft-PU-ExtraGrip folding roller they cover a wide range of various papers above 50 g/m², in hard-PU-version they are most suitable for the processing of light weight paper.
Various buckle plates like buckle plates with swing deflector, combination buckle plates or gatefold buckle plates offer maximum flexibility
Buckle plates with swing deflector and combination buckle plates
In standard version the Stahlfolder Ti folding machines are supplied with buckle plates with swing deflector. Optionally combination buckle plates are available for the Stahlfolder Ti 52, in which all important buckle plate adjustments like clearance, buckle space and pre-tension of the lower buckle plate lip can be done during running production as well.
Gate fold buckle plate
The pneumatic gate fold buckle plate allows for a high number of cycles of up to 15.000 cycles per hour with constant high fold quality. The digital control unit ACC 2.4 controls the switching points of the pneumatic gate fold buckle plate precisely, individually and independent from fold speed. The pneumatic gate fold buckle plate allows for fold lengths of 6.5 centimeters.
Rear-mounted slitter shafts, holding versatile creasing, perforating and cutting tools
The Stahlfolder Ti folding machines are standard equipped with a pair of rear-mounted slitter shafts with plug connection. This enables you to do creasing, perforating and cutting jobs in the folder. It increases fold quality and allows for a multi-up processing.
