The Stahlfolder TH 56 sets a new standard in folder productivity for smaller formats and is an ideal tool for digital printers. The TH 56 is being shown at Graph Expo in a pile-fed 6/4 configuration (Six plates with pre-slitter shaft in the first station and double rear mounted slitter shafts with lift kit; and four plates in the second station) with Level 3 automation and pressing, batching and counting stream delivery. At Graph Expo, demonstrations will emphasize the ease with which users can change over from job to job to compete in the short-run arena.
The modular platform of the TH series offers unmatched flexibility and the fastest makeready times while delivering superior fold quality. Accessories can be adapted to suit changing business requirements, for example: pre-slitter shafts in the first, second, or third station; single-mount rear slitter shafts; lift kits on the folding station; even popular rear-mounted slitter shafts lift kits. An EAP crossbar for timed perfs, as well as slitting and gluing heads, can be installed on the folding stations. All of these features are designed to deliver maximum flexibility, productivity, and performance while keeping the investment economical.
Flexible integration and process standardization via Prinect enables providers to collaborate with customers on high-quality, high-value projects that cut costs, raise efficiency, and drive profitability. As the only print technology vendor that can move a file from web-to-print input through finishing, Heidelberg encourages printers to look beyond individual machine specifications to grasp the bigger picture and bottom-line benefits of end-to-end production integration.
