Bobst Launches Redesigned Folder/Gluer

ROSELAND, NJ | Bobst recently introduced the MASTERFOLD 110 A3 folder/gluer. Available in two widths, 75 cm and 110 cm, the redesigned MASTERFOLD features running speeds to 700 mpm, increased automation, up to 15% faster setup, a 10% increase in throughput, added versatility in the types and styles of packaging it can handle, and a re-thought safety concept centered on the operator which is complemented by a 10% reduction in noise.

Jacques Reymond, head of product marketing for Bobst’s Business Unit Sheet-fed, says, “We believe that the new MASTERFOLD is the most productive folder/gluer in the world and answers customer concerns about how they can decrease setting times to cope with reducing run lengths and how they can achieve the high net outputs they need to maintain margins. This new machine can perfectly fold and glue more than a million boxes in a single shift. Yet the setting and running…has never been easier or quicker thanks to a host of new systems that we have developed. The new models are also truly versatile machines. They are highly configurable, so they can be tailored perfectly to users’ needs, adapted as those needs change, and grow with their businesses.”

Company says set-up times are minimum, and stored jobs can be recalled on the new Human Machine Interface (HMI) which also saves time during makeready. Units such as the line’s ACCUFEED module, or optional modules and peripherals such as SPEEDWAVE 3, EASYFEEDER/BATCH INVERTER 4, and CARTONPACK 4, have all been designed to be set quickly and easily with minimum operator intervention.

New open-frame design is said to maintain high levels of operator safety and provide faster access to the machine, while podiums on each module mean that making adjustments is easier.
