B&R Moll, Inc. has developed the Moll Compact, a space-efficient versatile folder/gluer machine with one of the smallest footprints available. Based on B&R Moll's full-size Vantage 720 finishing system, the Moll Compact is a friction-fed folder/gluer that is ideal for small format folding and finishing work, including straight-line boxes, pillow packs, coffee cup sleeves, and more.
The Moll Compact folder/gluer has overall dimensions of 5'W x l2'L x 4'H, and is available in 26", 36" and 40" configurations to accommodate a wide variety of materials and run multiple streams. Equipped with a tipper fold plate and plow fold capability to handle multiple fold formats, the Moll Compact also features a two-line hot-melt gluing system and a standard Dial-A-Stack unit with a batch counter.
"The Moll Compact folder/gluer delivers a lot of the features and functionality of our full-size folder/gluers, but in a reduced footprint machine ideal for smaller print and finishing shop areas," said Kevin Moll, regional sales manager for B&R Moll, Inc. "Its quick change-over time also makes it ideal for use with digital printing systems. When the time comes to upgrade, the Moll Compact can be converted to a full-size Vantage 720 system with the addition of a Versa-Fold unit."
The Moll Compact folder/gluer can handle paper weights ranging from 70lb. cover to 28pt. stocks (140-500g/m2) in sizes ranging from 2 x 4 inches (50 x 102mm) up to 33 x 20 inches (838mm x 508mm). Maximum linear speed is 425ft/min (130m/min). The system is available for either 220V 3-phase, 60A/60Hz or 400V 3-phase, 60A/50Hz power connections and a 90psi (0.7mPa) compressed air connection.
