The AIRSPEED 43 is a single lane towel folder, enabling mixed size pieces to be presented in any order and graded by length, French folded, cross folded and stacked. The standard machine configuration will allow the folding of items up to 1800mm in length. An extended length fold range is available which enables the processing of pieces above 1800mm long and up to a maximum of 2400mm.
Hand-fed pieces are automatically measured for width and the machine adjusted to form the perfect French fold. The piece is then transported to the cross fold section, at which time * Autograding takes place and up to two cross folds added. The Autograded piece, once cross folded, is stacked on the *appropriate conveyor, each of which can discharge independently to a directional change conveyor mounted to the side of the AIRSPEED 43. The completed stack is conveyed back to the operator for manual discharge, or to the rear of the machine where it may be linked to an automated handling system.
*Autograding version complete with 3 stack conveyors.
A Non-Autograding version with 1 stack conveyor is also available, although items will require pre-sorting to achieve a uniform stack presentation.
PLC electronics with easy to use Touch Screen Interface with 16 available programs and simple selection procedure for machine operators.
Full automation of completed stacks is achievable when the AIRSPEED 43 is supplied with an integrated conveyor system option. This system may include duplex discharge conveyors incorporating a tipping conveyor that can transfer completed stacks onto a new or an existing auxiliary conveyor for onward delivery to packaging equipment.
