The ultimate benchmark in large format


Tailor-made folding solution
Buckle folding machines by MBO convince with their universal application range and unique bandwidth of folding types.

All models of the Perfection series basically stand for the highest possible folding performance and maximum output. MBO folding machines and features are orientated on the users – both regarding practical requirements and the variety of the paper medium. Convenience plays a major role. The simpler the processes and workflows, the more efficient becomes production. With their high performance and excellent quality, the T 1420 Perfection provides the ideal preconditions for highest productivity. A broad range of folding types guarantee that the Perfection models live up to their names.

The equipment features of our folding machines have been especially designed for the purpose of their application. We never rest on our well-proven product development achievements but always try to recognise new requirements as early as possible. Ideally soon enough to offer you a solution before you even face the problem. Some of these special solutions can be found on the T 1420 Perfection.

Top quality at top speed
MBO Perfection models are the only buckle folding machines worldwide operating without the „ball“ transport system which is very susceptible to markings. In order to reliably avoid markings even for high throughput speeds, MBO applies the innovative vacuum infeed and alignment system Vivas, as well as patented High-Speed-Guide conical rollers.

Floorplan T1420 with folding unit II and III and sheet return device RFE.
The ultra-sonic and sheet monitoring sensors detect double and misfolded sheets during production and eject them after the first folding unit.
Thanks to the conical rollers, the High-Speed-Guide guarantees absolutely safe sheet transport, even at high speeds.
MABEG palletised feeder – Thanks to its fuse holders and retractable pile platform it allows the even infeed with a pallet jack. Alternatively, a ramp may be used.
Airstream alignment table – The long register table with two alignment rulers arranged in line allow a high degree of exactness of large and long sheets. Vacuum belts convey the sheets without leaving marks.
Using the double stream device, two sheet streams, which were separated in the first folding unit, can be transported in the folding unit II and III.


  • Unique MBO features make the
    handling of large formats easier and
    faster, allowing the machine to be
    operated by one person only.
  • Double stream, RFE and automation allow shorter set-up times and a more efficient production, thus making you considerably more productive and competitive when working with the T1420.

Multiplate buckle plates

All setting elements like the folding length, position and pretensioning of the lower plate lip, inner width and clamping of the buckle plates are installed on the operator side, thus ensuring both ergonomic and efficient handling for the operator. In order to be able to quickly and comfortably swing the deflectors, the T1420 is equipped with pneumatic cylinders which automatically regulate the retraction and extension movements. Therefore, “winding out“ the buckle folds is a thing of the past. The through sheet stop ensures that the sheet lies exactly against the stop and is not deformed.

Slitter shaft cassette MWK

The slitter shaft cassette of the Perfection series can be drawn out and reduces changeover times of one of the most time-consuming working steps, the positioning of the knives, to a minimum, thus ensuring clearly faster availability. In an ergonomically favourable height, the cassette can be easily and quickly drawn out on the operator side. In this position, the slitter shafts can be easily charged or a prepared pair of slitter shafts can be conveniently inserted – without the dangerous reaching into the machine on combination folding machines, without to circle around the machine a couple of times, without shifting the subsequent folding unit on buckle folding machines. The scale on the cassette allows the precise adjustment and positioning of the knives. Ideally suited for repeat jobs since the position of the knife can be reproduced.


We inform users of MBO buckle folders with MS/MC control, series T460/B118, T530/B21, T535E, B21-IFF, B26E, B30E/B30A and T700P-T1420P that a modification kit which includes an update of the safety status is available.
