|B&R MOLL COMPACT FOLDER/GLUER DELIVERS HIGH PERFORMANCE FOR DIGITAL PRESS OUTPUT
B&R Moll, Inc., a supplier of folder/gluers and specialised bindery finishing equipment for printing and packaging facilities, has developed the Moll Compact, a space efficient versatile folder/gluer machine with one of the smallest footprints available. Based on B&R Moll's full-size Vantage 720 finishing system, the Moll Compact is a friction-fed folder/gluer that is ideal for small format folding and finishing work, including straight-line boxes, pillow packs, coffee cup sleeves, and more.
The Moll Compact folder/gluer has overall dimensions of 1.5mW x 3.7mL x 1.2mH, and is available in 66cm, 91cm and 101cm configurations to accommodate a wide variety of materials and run multiple streams. Equipped with a tipper fold plate and plow fold capability to handle multiple fold formats, the Moll Compact also features a two-line hot-melt gluing system and a standard Dial-A-Stack unit with a batch counter.
"The Moll Compact folder/gluer delivers a lot of the features and functionality of our full-size folder/gluers, but in a reduced footprint machine ideal for smaller print and finishing shop areas," Darren Vernon, director of Moll International. "Its quick change over time also makes it ideal for use with digital printing systems. When the time comes to upgrade, the Moll Compact can be converted to a full-size Vantage 720 system with the addition of a Versa-Fold unit."
The Moll Compact folder/gluer can handle paper weights ranging from 140g/m2 to 500g/m2 (70lb. cover to 28pt.) stocks in sizes ranging from 50mm x 102mm (2 x 4 inches) up to 838mm x 508mm (33 x 20 inches). Maximum linear speed is 130m/min (425ft/min). The system is available for either 400V 3-phase, 60A/50Hz or 220V 3-phase, 60A/60Hz power connections and a 0.7mPa (90psi) compressed air connection.
