The Prestigefold Net 52 is a highly efficient solution that can be easily operated without special training. Bingo Servi-Jeux will see higher production with less downtime and waste – resulting in more business and higher profits. Many different, repetitive jobs can be automatically programmed – and its special tooling quick changeover makes this system unique in its market. It features fully automatic setting, from feeder to delivery. Starting with the unfolded sheet size, the selected type of fold and the paper thickness measured by its paper-thickness sensor, its computer control system calculates the positions of the various setting elements and adjusts them accordingly. Intelligent machine control and touchscreen operation simplify the folding process. The central touchscreen panel is the interactive operator interface where all important settings can be made. Manual error is reduced to a minimum and operator guidance is easy and self-explanatory. The operator knows at any time what menu is active and which options are still available. Its interface prestigeFOLD allows integration into existing in-plant networks. This is the basis for transfer of data to the machine by means of a JDF file, or for production-data acquisition. The Prestigefold Net 52 has automatic settings for feeders, fold plates, deflectors, alignment rails, fold rollers and deliveries.

Bingo Servi-Jeux in Montreal will be the first company in Canada to install the MB Bäuerle Prestigefold Net 52 from Insource.
