This machine has been well looked after and is in great condition. The machine has been fully serviced by Morgana trained engineers and ready to go.
The revolutionary DigiFold is manufactured in the UK by Morgana Systems Ltd., the company that made an earlier breakthrough in digital finishing technology with the AutoCreaser. The DigiFold goes a vital step further by combining this proven creasing technology with a new, patented folding method that reduces the possibility of marking or scratching even the most sensitive materials. By combining the functions of creasing and folding in a single, compact unit, Morgana has provided the user with a highly productive, easy to use and mobile finishing centre that is equally effective with digital output or with heavy, cross-grained stocks printed by conventional means. Versatile DigiFold Works in two ways.
• As an integrated creaser/folder performing both functions in a single pass
• As a creaser alone, when folding is not required.
DigiFold – How it Operates
For standard configurations, DigiFold works in ‘Set-to-Fold’ mode. Once the required fold and sheet length have been selected, a powerful programme automatically sets the creasing and folding position. ‘Set-to-Position’ operation is employed when extra creases are needed or difficult configurations have to be programmed. In this mode the operator dials in the creasing and folding positions. A third method of operation allows the DigiFold to be used as an automated creasing machine when folding is not required.
Set up as easy as 123
The digital print market demands document finishing products that not only overcome the problems associated with new printing technologies but also products which are easy to set-up. This market very often lends itself to shorter run lengths. therefore speed of ‘make-ready’, minimal wastage and ease of operation are key purchasing criteria. The Morgana DigiFold matches these criteria by using advanced electronics. A two level menu shown on the ‘head-up’ display asks whether you want to crease and fold, crease only, or fold only. Thereafter the operator simply selects the type of job required, dials in the sheet length or crease positions and automation takes over. With any document finisher it may be necessary to make small adjustments. The DigiFold allows crease or fold positions to be adjusted by increments of 0.1mm (0.004″). The position of the delivery stacker and fold rollers can also be adjusted to compensate for substrate thickness.
Creasing versus Scoring Traditional rotary scoring machines use circular blades that are in constant motion as the stock passes through them. This creates a ploughing action that actually cuts through the top fibres of the paper or card in order to create a score. Inevitably this weakens the paper and encourages cracking. In contrast, the Morgana DigiFold employs a unique creasing rule and matrix that eliminates tearing and, therefore, cracking.
