Available from Amscomatic Inc., an M&R Co.
Amscomatic's K-840 and K-895 are sophisticated high-speed automatic folding systems designed to precisely fold a wide variety of garments and other textile items. They’re engineered for dependable performance and low maintenance in demanding, high-production environments, and can be easily integrated with other Amscomatic equipment into automatic folding/bagging/sealing systems. A significant technological breakthrough—M&R’s patented bottom pulling dual-belt (upper and lower) transport system—finally makes it possible to fold garments printed with high density or gel inks.
Folding plates electronically adjust to the desired width while staying parallel to each other. This allows tighter, more consistent folding on all types of products. Wide transfer belts in the second-fold area minimize maintenance and improve performance. The entire garment transport system uses a timing belt drive, which runs quieter and requires less long-term maintenance than chain & sprocket drives.
Top covers of Plexiglas and extruded aluminum provide clear views and easy access to components from both sides of the folder. K-840 folding adjustments are made using the dials and switches on the control panel. The K-895’s touch-screen user interface allows users to quickly change fold sizes. It also allows K-895 users to store up to 99 fold settings for quick changeover. Both machines can be combined with various styles of label applicators and printers, further improving productivity.
