QuoteThis year is the launch of the new fold n´stitch, one of the more significant announcements, which allows a folding and stitching line to go on the end of a press inline operating at 40,000cph folding and stitching in one pass. Moeckli says fold n´stitch was developed in response from printer and publishers for such a solution, no need to take off the end of the press and process at the usual 8000 cph. It will enable a larger variety of products to be produced economically. Currently of course products are printed, stacked, fed to a gatherer stitcher at 8000 cph, packed, which means both labour and time are both high.Fold n´stitch operates on a quarterfold line, and makes use of a new rotary stitching head, enabling the very high speeds. It requires no manual intervention when online, although it can be operated as an off line solutions.
