MBO Invites You to its Open House in June

Automated folding and stacking for more productivity
MBO is hosting an Open House at its modern showroom in Oppenweiler (near Stuttgart) on June 23 and 24, 2022. The highlight of the event is the current special offer, which allows customers to invest in automated print finishing at a very attractive price. Low set-up times and automatic stacking result in reduced workload for machine operators and higher productivity in finishing processes. The package includes a complete folding system, including a feeder, folding machine, delivery and stacking robot. This special offer is only available until 3/9/2022.

Maximum productivity through maximum automation
The special offer, which equips customers with everything they need for the future, consists of the latest version of the MBO palletized feeder, the world’s fastest K8RS folding machine, the A80 stacker delivery, and the CoBo-Stack stacking robot.

With the latest version of the MBO palletized feeder, customers benefit from significant energy savings, which not only helps the environment, but also their wallets. The air flow of the feeder has been modified and is now much more efficient. A controlled pump is also used, which does not regulate the air supply continuously, but instead adjusts it individually to the precise process requirements. This energetically very efficient and environmentally friendly solution uses 50 % less energy than conventional pumps on the market. The new pump is also equipped with a ventilated noise damping device which considerably reduces noise emissions. The dual-vacubelt for the sheet infeed has also been modified and now has four valves with increased suction power. This allows a further increase in overall performance.

The K8RS, which operates at 275 m/min (902 fpm), is the fastest folding machine in the world. Thanks to the extensive automation and wide range of features such as the slitter shaft cassette, set-up times are extremely low. The machine features the M1 Advanced machine control as well as the RAS remote maintenance software, which can be used to access the free remote maintenance service.

In addition to the world’s fastest folding machine, the package also includes the A80 stacker delivery and the CoBo-Stack stacking robot. The delivery is fully integrated into the folding machine control. All functions can be performed from any screen. The A80 offers very simple access and extensive automation, allowing quick and simple set-up operations. In addition, the A80 is the ideal delivery for the MBO CoBo-Stack.

The CoBo-Stack stacking robot is an established solution in the market for automated stacking of folded sheets onto a pallet. MBO already has over 130 of these robots on the market. The main advantage of the CoBo-Stack compared to other automated stacking solutions is its mobility and flexibility. The CoBo-Stack is collaborative. This means that it can work directly next to people, and without any additional protective devices such as safety fences and pricey photoelectric sensors. The robot is on rollers and can be deployed exactly where it is needed within a very short time – not only behind folding machines, but also behind saddle stitchers and perfect binders.

MBO will open its doors to interested parties on Thursday, June 23, 2022 and Friday, June 24, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. As always, refreshments will be provided.
