Crease and Fold at the time with the Horizon CRF-362
Paper Creasing and Folding in One Pass
Horizon has created an extremely productive paper creaser and folder. Toner cracking on folds will be eliminated with a proper crease done before folding. Almost all creased jobs are folded so it makes perfect sense to do both processes at the same time in one machine.
A color touch screen makes it easy for anyone to walk up and use this device. The operator is guided through the job setup. You just have to enter the sheet dimensions and fold pattern, then the machine will take over and set itself up automatically. Minor adjustments are made with touch screen menus to make it easy for next generation operators to produce quality work.
Creasing printed sheets before you fold them is very important. When there is toner along the fold the paper will crack and make the fold look terrible. It ruins a job to have all of the effort of designing and printing nice artwork only to have it cracked at the end of production. Creasing the toner stops cracking from happening and gives the piece a finished look that is very professional. Take a look below at the image to compare what a fold looks like with and without creasing.
The Horizon CRF-362 Paper Creaser and Folder has been designed to handle the unique requirements of creasing and folding digital color output across a wide range of light and heavyweight stocks, coated or uncoated. Creasing and folding can be done in one pass for easy and accurate processing of a variety of applications such as restaurant menus, greeting cards, book covers, and marketing collateral.
