M&R LAUNCHES AMSCOMATIC K-950 AUTOMATIC FOLDING SYSTEM

814

M&R has launched the Amscomatic K-950, a sophisticated high-speed automatic folding system designed to precisely fold a wide variety of garments and other textile items. It’s engineered for dependable performance and low maintenance in demanding, high-production environments, and can be easily integrated with other Amscomatic equipment to create a highly-productive folding/labeling/bagging/sealing system.

M&R’s patented bottom pulling dual-belt (upper and lower) transport system carries garments on a moving belt instead of the stationary plate used on competing systems. The K-950’s dual-belt makes it easy to fold garments printed with high density or gel inks.

Updated folding plates electronically adjust over a wider 13-33 cm (5” to 13”) range while staying parallel to each other. This allows tighter, more consistent folding on all types of products. Wide transfer belts in the second-fold area minimise maintenance and improve performance. The entire garment transport system uses a timing belt drive, which runs quieter and requires less long-term maintenance than chain and sprocket drives.

Plexiglas top covers provide a clear view of the folding process while offering easy access to components from both sides of the machine. Quick-release side-panel covers allow easy access to the inner workings of the machine. All covers are interlocked, ensuring that the machine will not operate when a cover has been loosened or removed. K-950’s touch-screen control panel is mounted on a convenient swiveling arm, which allows tailoring of the machine’s control configuration to better suit operator preferences. This touch-screen interface controls all machine operating parameters, while Job Recall™ provides storage and retrieval of up to 99 fold settings for quick changeover.
