KL 112 – The machine for the smallest folds
The K112 is specifically designed for the most difficult of tasks, but is still capable of producing at the highest production speed. It is provided with up to 14 buckle plates, and is perfectly adapted to produce:
Small folded and glued information material
Pharmaceutical instruction leaflets using lightweight printed paper, e.g., outserts
Standard equipment on the KL 112 includes:
Buckles fold units with radial roller adjustment
Folding rollers in steel / plastic combination
Buckle fold units with a pair of slitting rollers as knock-out spindles with one tool for slitting, perforating and scoring
Central roller setting by under-laying paper to shorten set-up times

Transfer unit if two buckle folding units are supplied
M7/M8 – fully automatic folding machine
The M7/M8 are the profit centres for standard folds and products, especially in specific ‘niche’ areas.
All feeders with this unit, starting with the first folding unit onwards. As a result, subsequent extension with aggregates for lucrative additional tasks such as rubber coating, slitting in cycles, doubling paper or gluing products is possible. The M7 can be supplied in different working widths, from
42 cm up to 162 cm, as well as with up to 16 buckle plates.
Specific application areas for the M7 include:
Special multiple folds such as pyramid shaped spiral fold
Map folding machine – Multiple folding in first or second unit allows the folding of maps in any style.
Placards in formats up to 162cm x 205cm in size
Direct mail production
Booklet applications – The M 7 multiple pocket folder allows the production of glued or stitched booklets with a high number of pages. With or without separate cover, glued or stitched, booklet labels with a closing tab or without
Poster folding machine – Folding of large formats of posters with optimized folding roller diameters and working widths.
2 x 32-page Signature folding – Working widths up to 165 cm for large format folding allow the production of 32-page signatures in 2up.
With both of the above models Herzog + Heymann can supply a large range of optional extras to further enhance available folding solutions. Two notable items are:
Pick + Place module
The Pick + Place module is designed for universal use in folding systems and mailing systems in any position, or directly following the gatherer and stitcher. Attachment is possible in all printed product positions. The ‘GS’ version has a gripper / suction cup combination attachment for products that open at the front.
Tip it (and enhance your message!)
Draw attention to your printed direct mail product by gluing on coins, sweet packages, product samples, credit cards, postcards or small pamphlets! For example, if your printed product advertises your company and the key to the front door is attached, this sends out a very ‘welcoming’ message and you can be certain of receiving a very positive response! Additional attention can also be achieved if your attachment is glued on to you printed product at an angle.
