Special Offer Feeder Head Conversion

Vacustar feeder head conversion
MBO has advanced the Vacustar feeder head to simplify the transfer of heavy paper (large sheet formats, high grammages) from the pile feeder to the folding machine.
The paper suction systems are now operated by vacuum alone. This makes control of the sheet infeed much more accurate, and the sheets can also be separated more precisely. The number of wear and tear parts can also be reduced thanks to the simplified design.
  • Improved feeding behaviour with heavy paper
  • Self-controlling system with vacuum-operated spring suction cups instead of electrically switching parts
  • Finer adjustment options at the sheet infeed
  • Precise separation of heavy sheets
  • Up to 60,000 cycles an hour
  • Fewer wear and tear parts
  • Easy operability
  • Automatic height adjustment at the rear of the stack

The feeder head conversion "Vacustar" is suited for the T500, T520, T530, T535 buckle fold machines as well as the K530 and K760 combi folding machines, subject to an advance test. Other buckle fold and combi folding machine models on request.


If you are interested, please contact our contact persons or send an e-mail to customer-center@mbo-pps.com.
