Easy operation for the B1 / 70 x 100 cm format


The K80 folder offers extreme ease of operation. It is suitable for the production of high precision, high performance production of folded products such as signatures and flyers in medium and high print run lengths. Even complicated folding patterns can be produced with absolute precision. The combi folding machine achieves technical perfection thanks to the integration of numerous MBO-specific features.

The Vacujet feeder head achieves a frequency of up to 25,000 cycles per hour.
Vivas ensures reliable flat sheet infeed and optimum sheet run with high throughput capacity.
The manually adjustable swing deflector means that the buckle plate can be easily opened and closed.
Spiral fold rollers with hard PU feature very good grip, very quiet running and a sharp fold.
The slitter shaft cassette is removable. At the ergonomically ideal height, all tools and strippers can be adjusted quickly and precisely, outside the machine.

Typical fold types

The K80 can be used to produce the following fold types, among others:

  • 8 pages, 2 x parallel centre folds
  • 16 pages, cross fold
  • 24 pages, 2 x zig-zag folds, 2 x centre folds
  • 32 pages, 3 x zig-zag folds, 2 x centre folds


The K80 is significantly upgraded with the CoBo-Stack collaborative stacking robot. The robot sets down folded signature stacks from the delivery onto the pallet. This relieves the operator of physical strain and allows him to take care of administrative tasks such as quality control or preparation for the next job. With the CoBo-Stack the performance of the folding machine can be utilised to the full and is no longer limited by the human factor. The CoBo-Stack is retrofittable to existing deliveries of type MBO A500, A700 and A80.

K80 in comparison

In addition to the K80, the MBO range of combi folding machines for the B1 / 70 x 100 cm format range includes the K70 and the K8 / K8RS.

The K70 is the entry-level model from MBO. It runs approximately 10 % slower than the K80. The K70 is available as a manual machine and has a very good price/performance ratio.

K8 / K8RS
The K8 / K8RS are the high-end folding machines from MBO, offering the highest degree of automation of all machine ranges from MBO. In addition, the K8RS is the fastest folder world-wide.
