High performance, space efficient automated cross-knife folding machines - The Horizon AFC-56 series feature advanced automation with user-friendliness and high quality folding.
Set-up a wide variety of fold patterns by simply touching the corresponding icon and inputting the sheet size on the large LCD color touchscreen.
Automated setups take just a few seconds. The LCD touchscreen prompts the operator through all remaining settings for fast, efficient production. All adjustments are user-friendly and require minimal skill or training.
17 fold patterns are automatically set by selecting the sheet size and fold pattern on the LCD touchscreen. Each section is set automatically by high precision stepper motors for high quality folding.
All roller gap settings are automated for the actual sheet thickness inserted to the caliper.
Wireless remote controller enables common operations and adjustments to be performed from all areas of the system for greater fl exibility, performance and ease-of-use.
Superior and consistent fold quality is ensured with steel and softformed polyurethane combination rollers. A high precision stepper motor is employed for fi ne-tuning in 0.005 mm steps with a simple touch of the + or - button.
Horizon’s advanced rotary suction feed system with side blowing assist air for fast, consistent feeding of a wide range of paper stocks.
The supersonic and photoelectronic double feed detect sensors come standard for superior detection.
Newly designed double sheet control system allows double feeds to stop immediately on the register table for ease of recovery and reduced machine downtime.
Signature can be set up based on a fold mark in a printed job. Just by inputting the distance between edge of the sheet to the folding mark, the signature can be set up exactly to the imposition.
