Described by Morgana as a “heavy-duty” automatic creasing and folding system, the DigiFold Pro XL is designed to complement mid to high volume digital and offset production presses.

The DigiFold Pro XL is developed from the Morgana DigiFold Pro, and is equipped with the latest version of the patented DynaCrease creasing system. The unit incorporates a suction feeder that handles stock sizes from 210mm to 1300mm in length.

The Morgana DigiFold Pro XL fits with long-sheet capabilities of today’s production printers by featuring a pull-out extension that handles sheet sizes up to 1300mm as standard. This opens the door to new applications, such as landscape booklet covers, book covers for oversized perfect bound books, multi-panel brochures, and other applications made possible by long sheet presses.

The DigiFold Pro XL is equipped with the latest version of Morgana’s DynaCrease, with Morgana saying the creasing blades can now be easily changed without the use of tools. An additional Static Crease option can be installed to enable different crease profiles to be applied in one pass, commonly used in the production of hinge and spine creases in book covers. Morgana says changing the Static Crease blade for a perforation tool will provide “the full range” of crease and perforation options, such as tear out coupons and reply cards.

Morgana’s DigiFold Pro XL can fold up to 6000 A4 sheets per hour, and when using crease-only mode, can produce up to 7500 sheets per hour. The feeding unit has a maximum loading capacity of 200mm.

According to Morgana the top-fed vacuum feeder ensures stable production for long runs. The operator panel allows for the simple input of sheet size, media type and thickness. With this information, the Pro XL can automatically set the speed, roller gap, and fan settings.

An air-knife system is used for sheet separation. Full cross perforation is available, plus up to five inline perforation/scoring wheels. The unit can produce up to 30 creases per sheet (Static Crease). It is equipped with both a belt-stacker for folded sheets and a delivery tray for crease only jobs.

The loading and unloading areas are an open design to make it easy to monitor performance and make changing from job to job fast and efficient. The new open feeder design is capable of efficiently feeding a wide range of media types and weights. It is equipped with automated vacuum feed technology, specifically designed to handle the widest range of pre-printed media.

Commenting on this latest addition to the Morgana range, Ray Hillhouse, VP sales & marketing said: “The Pro XL is an important addition because of its wide stock range. We work closely with the print engine manufacturers on several levels. All of them were pushing into longer sheet applications with their latest print engines. As well as opening up a new range of possibilities, we’ve made the DigiFold easier to operate and automated much of the feeder set-up with our new vacuum feeder.”
