Palamides DeltaPro – Automatic delivery

With the new automatic delta delivery the focus is on higher productivity with lower personnel costs. Sturdy, easy-to-handle stacks ensure effective removal to subsequent processing machines.

The delta is primarily a fully automatic delivery system, which streamlines the production process. Here, rationalisation is key, not bundling the packages. By using a delta at a folding machine only one operator will be required. Also, at saddle stitchers, one person can remove the stack cost-effectively even with 2-up or 3-up production and all at full running capacity. Handling the packages is quick and easy, even for in-house transfer from the folding machine to the saddle stitcher. The band merely serves as a means of relocating the products quickly, simply and efficiently.

The delta sets new standards for speed, format range and user-friendliness. With its 600 packages per hour per product stream, it puts all previous machines in the shade. With the tandem version up to 3,600 packages per hour can be processed.

Products which can be processed:

  • Folding machines combi or buckle folding machines, irrespective of manufacturer
  • Saddle stitchers, from the smallest products in multiple up-work up to A3 formats
  • Mailers, slippery and asymmetrical products
  • Digital printing machines, regardless of whether parallel or cross fold


Alpha – stacking delivery

The products are collected by the machine and the neatly jogged stacks are delivered to a buffer table. The operator removes the ergonomically convenient jogged stack from the delivery table and no longer has to knock-up the products. This means that, even after several hours of production, the folding machine can still run at full production without tiring the operator.

The alpha delivers free of markings, i.e. no smearing of freshly printed products. In order to reduce set-up times the machine sets itself up pretty much automatically (automatic stacker). The pressing unit can be opened at the press of a button, which greatly simplifies press roller cleaning and removal of double sheets.

As the alpha was mainly designed for signatures, the pressing unit is equipped with 3.5 t of pressing force (cumulated). As with all palamides‘ deliveries, the alpha identifies waste and automatically ejects it. Alongside this delivery technology, which has been established for years, palamides have designed a further essential component, “the intelligent output module”, which only forwards book blocks that have been checked for completeness to the subsequent finishing unit (e.g. adhesive binder etc.).
