B&R Moll Compact Folder/Gluer Delivers High Performance For Digital Press Output
WICKFORD, ESSEX, UK – 12 August, 2014 – B&R Moll, Inc., the industry’s leading supplier of folder/gluers and specialized 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.
