KL / Super-KTL in the cross fold

The machine configuration determines the possible range of fold types. The KL configuration is the standard configuration in combi folding machines. The cross fold is followed by a three-fold on the left side. In contrast, the Super-KTL configuration has a buckle plate after the first slitter. This allows an additional fold to be realised parallel to the knife fold. Depending on the format, this can be a roll fold or a zig-zag fold. There is also a full slitter shaft after the KTL plate. This can be fitted with the same tools as the slitter shaft in the parallel fold.
