Excellent Folding Quality
The T800.1 is MBO’s premium buckle folding machine with a universal scope of applications and unique range of folding types. MBO folding machines and features are built with the operators in mind, both for practical requirements and concerning the versatility of the medium of paper.
Convenience plays an important role here. The easier the procedures and work processes, the more efficient the production can become. With high output at excellent quality, the T800.1 offers ideal prerequisites for maximising productivity. A wide range of folding types and individualised automation options ensure smooth production for medium and high print runs and frequently changing folding types.
Machine Control M1
Machine control M1 Basic with touchscreen
The first folding unit of the T800.1 with machine control M1 Basic is equipped with a touchscreen. The screen diagonal is 10.1“. In addition, the first folding unit is equipped with sheet monitoring by means of optical sensors. Basic functions such as “Start”, “Stop” and “Production” can be carried out at the subsequent folding units with machine control M1 Basic. The speed of the folding units is set manually.
Machine control M1 Advanced with touchscreen
The machine control M1 Advanced can be operated from any folding unit. The screen diagonal of the adjustable touchscreen on folding unit I is 15.6” and on the subsequent folding units 10.1”.
The operator is optimally supported when setting up a new job. Common standard folding impositions are preconfigured in “Quick Mode”. Every technically possible and sensible variant can be put together in “Expert Mode”.
In addition, optimal sheet gaps and speeds are automatically calculated and set in all folding units. In addition, the machine control M1 Advanced features sheet monitoring across all folding units. This includes sheet length control and sheet-monitoring using sensors.
The control includes a router for the remote access software RAS. The machine control M1 Advanced is also compatible with the Datamanager 4.0, a software package for production planning and analysis. Among other things, Datamanager 4.0 contains a folding imposition catalogue which supports the user during set-up.
Sheet Return Device RFE
The sheet return device RFE is available as an option for the third folding unit. The folded sheets are returned under the third folding unit via bands. This makes it possible to position the delivery near the feeder. This has become more ergonomic and leads to less strain on the operator, since the path between the feeder and delivery is shortened by about 80 %. Thanks to the sheet return device the machine can now be operated by a single person instead of two. The sheet return device therefore lowers staff requirements as well as saves a considerable amount of space.
T800.1 in Comparison
In addition to the T800.1, the MBO range includes the B30 buckle fold machine for the B1 / 70 x 100 cm format range.
The B30 is a fully manual buckle folder, therefore a very cost-effective solution. It is particularly well-suited for operations with high print runs and nearly uniform folding types. Of course, the B30 folds with the same quality and accuracy as the T800.1, thanks to the high-quality MBO features and components. For example, these features include the maintenance-free belt drive, the continuous sheet stop in the first buckle plate or buckle plates with swing deflectors.
