Thanks to its high production speeds of up to 275 m/min (902 fpm) the K8RS is particularly well suited to finishing processes on large print runs. This means you can therefore profit from a considerably reduced turnaround time of your jobs.
The MBO K8RS has a comprehensive range of standard equipment, ensuring the best possible usability. It is always supplied with a palletized feeder. Unlike flat and continuous feeders, palletized feeders have the significant advantage that the printed sheets from the folding machine can be conveyed by pallet and thus very quickly. Customers can choose between four and six buckle plates in the parallel fold, and between the Super-KTL, Super-KTLT and Super-KTZ configurations. The standard equipment includes M1 control technology, including touchscreen. This simplifies the intuitive setup of the machine. The palletized feeder is equipped with the Vaculift RS feeder head and Vivas. Vivas is used to improve the sheet infeed and the sheet alignment with challenging materials and at high production speeds. With the K8RS, customers can choose between buckle plates with swing deflectors or combination buckle plates. Virotec fold rollers are included as standard, as is the ergonomic, patented slitter shaft cassette in the parallel fold. The latter means that the slitter shafts are user-friendly and can be equipped by just one person, and the tools can be adjusted quickly and accurately. For improved accessibility, the knife folding area at the cross fold can be swung up. The knife folding area at the three fold is retractable. The K8RS is also factory-fitted with a router that permits connection to the MBO remote maintenance software, RAS.
To ensure fault-free production even at the high speeds of up to 275 m/min (902 fpm), the entire machine is equipped with intelligent sheet monitoring. Blank sheets and/or faulty sheets are detected via optional cameras and removed by the ejection device included as standard. The options also include the pre-slitter shafts and gatefold plates. The MBO K8RS can be automated as an option. The automation package includes the settings for the buckle plates, fold rollers, sheet deflectors and slitter shafts as well as the length of the folding knife in the cross fold and the sheet stop in the cross fold and three fold.
K8 / K8RS in comparison
In addition to the K8 / K8RS, the MBO range of combi folding machines for the B1 / 70 x 100 cm format range includes the K70 and the K80.
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.
Aside from its higher maximum production speed in comparison to the K70, the K80 comes with additional MBO features that make it especially comfortable to operate. Only the K8 / K8RS is capable of even higher performances.
