NEW MBO K80 - Flexible, cost effective B1 Combination Folder
German folder manufacturer MBO has launched the new MBO K80 combi folding machine and it will be showcased to the public for the first time at Baumann Label and Finishing Days this week from 27 to 29 June 2017 at Baumann in Solms. The K80 fits perfectly into the new product range of MBO combi folding machines for the 70 x 100 cm size range. At maximum output of 230m/min it closes the gap between the manual K70 and the K8RS, the world's fastest folding machine.
The K80 is ideal for high-precision, high-performance production of signatures, flyers and other similar products in medium industrial print run lengths. It runs at speeds of up to 230 m/min (755 fpm), and offers a comprehensive range of standard equipment and multiple automation options.
Stuart Bamford, National Post-Press Sales Manager says, “The K80 not only uses proven, reliable technology but they’ve added a higher level of automation, shorter make readies, added the latest M1 control unit as standard and at the price point it’s speed and quality of fold is perfect for UK commercial printers in the B1 sector”
To fulfil different production requirements and to add more automation, customers can choose between Buckle plates and sheet deflectors in the parallel fold and cross fold, fold rollers in the parallel fold, cross fold and three fold and slitter shafts in the cross fold and three fold. The latest MBO folder carries on the tradition of using the highest quality MBO components.
MBO's participation in the Baumann Label and Finishing Days represents the start of the renewed collaboration between the two firms. From 01-07-17 Heinrich Baumann Grafisches Centrum GmbH & Co. KG will become the official agency for MBO products in central, eastern and southern Germany. This role will include direct sales for folding machines, customer service, and spare parts supplies for MBO.
