DUPLO LAUNCHES NEXT GENERATION CREASER/FOLDER




Creasing and folding combined into one machine, fully automated, with an easy to operate touch screen. These are only some key features of Multigraf's creaser/folder TOUCHLINE CF375, supplied by Duplo to the UK market. This new generation of folding machines responds to the changing requirements of the digital and commercial print finishing market.The TOUCHLINE generation offers more flexibility and automation than any other product in its class. The creaser/folder TOUCHLINE CF375 handles paper stocks up to 400 gsm, creases and folds the products, all in one single pass. It employs the unique Multigraf Swing-Bar System for creasing without cracking. The sheets don't stop during the creasing process. The automated set up of the crease depth with different positions is another fantastic feature of the TOUCHLINE CF375. This new technology allows for the speeding up of the creasing process with an accuracy of 0.1 mm.



The folding section of the TOUCHLINE CF375 uses Multigraf's patented Pro-Knife System. It was designed not only to achieve a perfect folding process but also to avoid marking and scratching on the products. These electronically controlled knives are also used as deflector bars, contacting the leading edge only. Due to the extra large diameter fold rollers, there is no deformation on the folded products at all. By using this technology, the TOUCHLINE CF375 runs at a consistent speed of more than 6000 A4 sheets per hour, regardless of the number of creases and folds applied.TOUCHLINE is equipped with a pile feeder using vacuum belt technology, air knife control for a perfect sheet separation, and double sheet detection. There is no additional pump needed. This offers less noise emissions in a print room environment. The maximum sheet size is 375 x 650 mm (optional table extension available).Multigraf's TOUCHLINE CF375 can be used as an integrated creaser/folder performing both functions in one single pass, as a stand alone creaser when folding is not needed or as a perforator when no other operation is required.The delivery side consists of two different output levels. For creasing and folding, the products are delivered to the upper level onto an electric shingling delivery belt with auto settings. For creasing or perforating only, the sheets are delivered to the lower level into a delivery tray. In this process, the sheets are not running through the fold rollers at all, avoiding deformation. An online perforating device is available for the lower exit level. TOUCHLINE has been designed as a space saving device, standing on wheels. The floor space needed is 1860 x 600 mm only.Multigraf's inspiration for this new product line was given by its name - TOUCHLINE. Press the
