B&R Moll Vantage 720 Folder/Gluer Delivers
Fast Production Rates in a Compact, In-Line Machine
WICKFORD, ESSEX – 25 March, 2014 – B&R Moll, Inc., the industry’s leading supplier of folder/gluers and specialised bindery finishing equipment for printing and packaging facilities, developed the Vantage 720 In-Line Folder/Gluer to provide printers and packagers with a reliable, compact folder/gluer capable of producing straight-line cartons, auto-lock bottom boxes, and four-corner boxes at production rates up to 30,000 pieces per hour.
An operating Vantage 720 Folder/Gluer will be demonstrated at the international IPEX 2014 exhibition in London from 24 to 29 March, 2014 at Moll International’s stand #N4-D362.
“The Vantage 720 Folder/Gluer System is significantly more compact than conventional folding and gluing equipment, making it ideal for smaller work spaces,” said Darren Vernon, director of Moll International. “The machine’s open format layout enables operators to quickly change over between jobs to meet tight production schedules, and its dual stream feeding capability means that two operations can be performed simultaneously to increase throughput. It can be configured to produce a wide range of finished pieces, including straight-line boxes, room key holders, table tents, sleeves, CD wallets, computer software cartons or presentation folders.”
The Vantage 720 Folder/Gluer is available in both 30” and 36” formats. Designed as belt-driven in-line system, the Vantage 720 delivers quieter, smoother, more reliable operation with less maintenance and more uptime. Stainless steel guides and formers provide a non-marring rust-resistant surface that’s easier to clean.
A trombone delivery system provides tighter stacking, and the quad glue system ensures consistent adhesive dispensing. Optional equipment for the Vantage 720 system includes a pre-break kit to stack boxes in fulfillment lines, a kit for producing auto-lock bottom boxes, and pressure stacker for materials requiring extra glue penetration time.
The Vantage 720 Folder/Gluer can handle paper weights ranging from 140 to 500g/m2 stocks (70lb. cover to 28pt.) in sizes ranging from 50 x 102mm (2 x 4 inches) up to 762 x 508mm (30 x 20 inches). Maximum linear speed is 130m/min (425 ft/min). The system is available for either 400V 3-phase, 60A/50Hz or 220V 3-phase, 60A/60Hz power connections.
