T 800.1 Buckle Folder


The T 800.1 is MBO’s premium buckle folding machine with a universal scope of applications.  With a blazing maximum machine speed, and wide range of fold patterns it suits the North American Commercial Print Market well.  At 230 m/m (9,055 ipm), a common 25″ x 38″ printed sheet can be processed up to 13,930 sph!  This represents a substantial increase in production output over nearly any earlier vintage folding machine in use today, allowing upgrade projects to have replacement goals of up to 2:1 and sometimes more with MBO’s customized productivity options.  It is built with the operator in mind, both for ergonomics and for paper stock versatility. Ease of operation plays an important role. The easier the procedures and work processes, the more efficient the production can become.  MBO’s latest M1 controls platform leads this challenge with a simple graphical interface, intuitive screen choices, and complete integration.  With high output and excellent quality, the T800.1 maximizes productivity. A wide range of folding types and individualised automation options ensure smooth production for a wide range of print runs and frequent makereadies.
