The all-purpose solution for the half-size format


The T50 is MBO’s answer to wide-ranging customer requirements in the 50 x 70 cm half-size format. Equipped with the latest generation M1 machine control, it can be optimally configured for every application. The T50 offers more than simply the tried and trusted MBO standards such as the belt drive and the slitter shafts with plug bearings. Many of the high-end features of its “big brothers” are also available as options. With a Vivas vacuum system, slitter shaft cassette and comprehensive automation options, it can be optimally tailored to any job requirements. It features a valuable equipment level as standard, including an intuitive operation touchscreen and marking-free sheet alignment via High-Speed-Guide in the second folding unit.

Vivas ensures reliable flat sheet infeed and optimum sheet run with high throughput capacity.
The Vacustar feeder head offers exceptional ease of operation.
Virotec fold rollers permit very good fold quality – even with challenging materials, such as recycled or thin printing papers, and at high folding speeds.
The slitter shaft cassette is removable. At the ergonomically ideal height, all tools and strippers can be adjusted quickly and precisely, outside the machine.
Thanks to the conical rollers, the High-Speed-Guide guarantees absolutely safe sheet transport, even at high speeds.

M1 machine control

M1 Basic machine control
(Standard feature)

The first folding unit of the T50 with M1 Basic machine control is equipped with a touchscreen. In addition, the first folding unit is equipped with sheet monitoring by means of optical sensors. A router for the RAS Remote Access Software is optionally available. This is a prerequisite for the Datamanager 4.0, which is also optional.

M1 Advanced machine control 
(Alternative feature)

The M1 Advanced machine control can be operated from any folding unit. Common standard folding impositions are preconfigured. In addition, optimal sheet gaps are automatically calculated and set in all folding units. In addition, the M1 Advanced machine control features sheet monitoring across all folding units. 

Even greater variability with the mobile knife folding unit X50

The mobile knife folding unit expands the folding type range of the T50 and allows additional crossfolds and special folding types to be produced. The knife is pneumatically driven and features particularly low wear-off. The knife folding unit is height adjustable and can therefore be used as a second or third folding unit. Rear slitter shafts incorporated as standard are positioned parallel to the folding knife and open up further application options. Gatefold brushes available as optional equipment can be used to produce closed gatefolds. To achieve this, the knife folding unit is used as a third folding unit.
