T 1020 / T 1120 Perfection

            Size is not the only thing that matters, perfection is also important

More flexibility desired:

The newly developed transfer table with an alternating deflector and waste paper ejector are applied in the T 1120 Perfection.
Tailor-made folding solution 
Buckle folding machines by MBO convince with their universal application range and unique bandwidth of folding types.
All models of the Perfection series basically stand for the highest possible folding performance and maximum output. MBO folding machines and features are orientated on the users – both regarding practical requirements and the variety of the paper medium. Convenience plays a major role. The simpler the processes and workflows, the more efficient becomes production. With their high performance and excellent quality, the T 1020 and T 1120 Perfection provide the ideal preconditions for highest productivity. A broad range of folding types and individual automation options guarantee that the Perfection models live up to their names.
The equipment features of our folding machines have been especially designed for the purpose of their application. We never rest on our well-proven product development achievements but always try to recognise new requirements as early as possible. Ideally soon enough to offer you a solution before you even face the problem. Some of these special solutions can be found on the T 1020 and T 1120 Perfection.

The newly developed transfer table which can be used with the Perfection buckle folding machine T 1120 in folding unit I enables unimagined possibilities with only one additional investment. The transfer table which is fixed at the folding unit I is equipped with a so-called alternating deflector. The alternating deflector can divide the product stream of folding unit I in turns to two sidelays in folding unit II. Therefore, the mechanical speed of folding unit II is cut in half, thus enabling this folding unit to handle a higher output of folding unit I, especially in the case of landscape size. Due to the bisection of speed a very high folding quality and a safe change of transport direction in folding unit II is guaranteed. 
Therefore, for many products that can very often be produced with a high speed in folding unit I but which are then slowed down in folding unit II (due to e.g. variations in folding, difficult changes of transport direction, “flying” paper edges of thin products) the output can be increased by up to 40 %. And all of that with just one touch. 
The waste paper ejector integrated in the transfer table ensures higher net outputs. Misfolded sheets or doublesheets (recognised by the ultrasonic double-sheet control) are ejected before the alternating deflector during production.
