ET 46

More folding options on one hand, more gain of time on the other hand.

The mobile cross carrier ET 46 meet various application purposes. Since ET 46 can be swivelled by 180 ° it is suitable for both left hand and right hand lay. The alignment ruler of ET 46 is equipped with a ball rail for standard products; for thick products conical rollers are recommended which are optionally available. In combination with a mobile knife folding unit, cross carriers are applied on combi folding machines to produce a parallel fold to the cross and three fold or a double gate fold. Following a saddle stitcher it is possible to produce a parallel fold to the back. The combination of a cross carrier, rotary feeder and mobile knife folding unit leads to a signature folding unit.
