Morgana Systems, a Plockmatic Group company, has released the DigiFold Pro XL creasing and folding machine.
The DigiFold Pro XL is the latest addition to the Morgana DigiFold family. The machine is developed from the well proven Morgana DigiFold Pro. It is equipped with the latest version of the patented DynaCrease creasing system. The unit incorporates a suction feeder that handles stock sizes from 210mm to 1300mm in length. The heavy-duty automatic creasing and folding system complements mid to high volume digital and offset production presses.
Morgana says its DigiFold Pro XL fits perfectly with long-sheet capabilities of today’s production printers. It features a pull-out extension that handles sheet sizes up to 1300mm as standard. Applications include landscape booklet covers, book covers for oversized perfect bound books, and multi-panel brochures.
The DigiFold Pro XL uses the latest version of Morgana’s DynaCrease, where the creasing blades can now be easily changed without the use of tools. You can install an additional Static Crease option to enable different crease profiles to be applied in one pass. This is common in the production of hinge and spine creases in book covers. Changing the Static Crease blade for a perforation tool provides the full range of crease and perforation options, such as tear out coupons and reply cards.
Morgana’s DigiFold Pro XL can fold up to 6,000 A4 sheets per hour. Moreover, using crease-only mode, it can produce up to 7,500 sheets per hour. The feeding unit has a maximum loading capacity of 200mm.
The company says a top-fed vacuum feeder ensures stable production for long runs. In addition, Morgana says it has a user-friendly operator panel. This allows for the simple input of sheet size, media type, and thickness. With this information, the Pro XL can automatically set the speed, roller gap, and fan settings.
Air knife system
It uses an air-knife system for sheet separation. It also offers full cross perforation and up to five inline perforation/scoring wheels. The unit can produce up to 30 creases per sheet (static crease). In addition, it has a belt stacker for folded sheets and a delivery tray for crease only jobs.
The loading and unloading areas have an open design to make it easy to monitor performance. Further, it makes changing from job to job fast and efficient. The new open feeder design can efficiently feed a wide range of media types and weights. Its vacuum feed technology handles a range of pre-printed media.
Ray Hillhouse, vice president for sales and marketing at Morgana, says, “The Pro XL is an important addition because of its wide stock range. We work closely with the print engine manufacturers on several levels. All of them have pushed into longer sheet applications with their latest print engines. As well as opening up a new range of possibilities, we’ve made the DigiFold easier to operate and automated much of the feeder set-up with our new vacuum feeder.”
