K8RS Digital

High-Speed Web Folding For Books, Magazines, And Catalogs

 
 

The K8RS Digi-Folder is the latest module to be added to MBO’s web-finishing product mix. Based off of the K8RS High Speed Folding System, the K8RS Digi-Folder is a folding module that brings the advantages of MBO’s RS technology to the web-finishing market. With unprecedented speed capabilities and automation features, this module is ideal for printers running short, medium, or long run signature applications from any web up to 30 inches wide. As with most MBO web-finishing modules, the K8RS Digi-Folder can be configured inline or nearline with a wide range of other MBO modules and deliveries.

The K8RS Digi-Folder from MBO is the latest in MBO web finishing technology. This modular adaptation of the K8RS platform is capable of inline or offline production and is specifically engineered for digital book block production and/or analog signature production.

MBO web finishing technology can be purchased at a system level for one specific job type or at a modular level for printers running multiple job types off a web. MBO’s modular approach to finishing gives printers the ability to create a mix-and-match finishing environment where operators simply roll modules into place when changing job types. This allows numerous finishing steps to be integrated into one line and eliminates touches by consolidating staging for each production down to one setup – thus reducing overall setup times and increasing operational efficiency.

As with all MBO web finishing systems, the K8RS Digi-Folder can be configured with several different modules and deliveries for example with the A10 Log Stacking Delivery and the A7D Stacking Delivery.

The A10 Log Stacking Delivery is ideal for high-volume signature work as it creates banded signature bundles without operator attendance or intervention.

The A7D Stacking Delivery was designed specifically for the digital finishing market and is ideal for book block or signature applications. By spot gluing along the spine, the A7D delivers glued book blocks that maintain integrity when being handled in subsequent processes.

Whether it is purchased as a system or as part of a mix-and-match finishing environment, the K8RS Digi-Folder from MBO will get the job done!
