The fastest folding machine in the world
The RS makes the difference
The valuable upgrades which are provided as standard and increase productivity and production stability are what distinguish the K8RS. The palletized feeder of the K8RS can process pile heights of up to 130 cm (51 1/4”) – 10 cm (4”) more than the feeder of the K8 and K80. The sheets are separated from the paper stack by the newly developed Vacujet RS feeder head. The sheets are then transferred to the double vacubelt sheet infeed system, which has two parallel suction belts and accelerates the sheets to production speed within a very short time. Heavy-duty timing belts and particularly powerful motors allow the K8RS to achieve speeds of up to 275 metres per minute (902 fpm).

The new palletized feeder is equipped with improved air routing, which means increased productivity. Thanks to the regulated, high-performance pressure vacuum pump, energy consumption is lower than that of previous models. The new pump also has a ventilated noise insulation device. The palletized feeder is suitable for processing pallets directly from the printing press. It is ideal for processing large runs with one-person operation.
