The T50 is MBO’s answer to wide-ranging customer requirements in the 50 x 70 cm half-size format and offers more than simply the tried and trusted MBO standards such as belt drive and slitter shafts with plug bearings. Many of the high-end features of its “big brothers” are also available as options. With Vivas vacuum system, slitter shaft cassette and comprehensive automation options, it can be optimally tailored to any requirements. It also features an intuitive operation touchscreen and marking-free sheet alignment via high-speed guides in the second folding unit.
The T50 features the intuitive M1 control which is now present on all MBO folding machines. It is available in M1 Basic and M1 Advanced versions. Both control versions can be optionally connected to an MIS using the planning and analysis software, Datamanager 4.0. Using the RAS remote maintenance software, MBO service technicians can provide optimal support as quickly as possible.
In addition to a 10.1” touch screen, the M1 Basic features sheet monitoring in the first folding unit. Basic functions such as “Start”, “Stop” and “Production” can be carried out at the subsequent folding unit. Jams at the subsequent folding unit outlet are also detected quickly with an optical sensor.
With the M1 Advanced control variant, the fold rollers, slitter shafts and buckle plates can be automated. This makes operation on the 15.6” touch screen of the first folding unit as well as the 10.1” touch screen of the subsequent folding unit even easier. If necessary, the machine combination can be controlled completely via the control panel of the subsequent folding unit.
The T50 can be adjusted to different needs thanks to countless options. For example, customers have the choice of a continuous or a pile feeder. The latter can be equipped with the tried-and-tested Vacustar feeder head. The sheets are transported from the feeder either with a suction wheel and ball rail or with the Vivas vacuum and alignment system, which is very gentle on the product. Four or six buckle plates in the first folding unit as well as in the optional second folding unit determine the spectrum of folding types.
Typical MBO features are also available for shortening set-up times. The optional combi buckle plates do away with the physical exertion needed for opening or closing the buckle plates. The slitter shaft cassettes available for the first folding unit saves the operator both time and money.
