MBO K8RS Digital

The K8RS Digital is the ideal folding machine when a high level of productivity and flexibility is required. With speeds of up to 250 m/min (820 fpm) and extensive automation options, it is the right choice for long runs and very short makeready times. It is suitable for the production of signatures.


The line concept of the K8RS Digital is an ideal industrial folding solution when a high level of productivity, efficiency and format variability with minimum makeready and changeover times are required in the production of signatures or even complete book blocks, with or without auxiliary gluing, for the finishing process in web finishing. The K8RS Digital can be used inline as well as offline and is equipped with automated buckle plates and fold rollers and can be integrated into a JDF workflow. Selective and variable buckle plates can be integrated to increase format variability.

Using the WTS8 add-on module makes it possible, for example, to process 2-up, 3-up and 4-up printed products from the roll by positioning the web exactly in relation to the folding knife in the K8RS Digital. Furthermore, it is possible to turn or flip the web, if necessary. The module is also designed to rotate or turn the paper web if the customer's structural conditions make this necessary.


The EM80.1 module ejects misprinted sheets, control sheets and start-up waste from the process to ensure error-free production.
