The new HERZOG + HEYMANN Miniature Folding Machine

The new KL 45 from HERZOG+HEYMANN is the latest development for the miniature folding market segment. This entry level miniature folder was developed from the well established KL 112 platform, and is designed specifically for lightweight paper processing. With its high quality components, integrated batch counter, and double sheet detection, this machine has all the basics in one self contained solution.

Whether you are doing short or long job runs, the KL 45 can be optimised for your production with either a pile feeder or continuous feeder. Additionally, this system can be configured with a number of fold plate combinations for different job applications.

  • Dual-calibrating fold rollers increase control of product
  • Belt driven rollers reduce noise
  • Fold roller calibration via easily accessible paper callipers
  • Slitter shaft
  • High-Grip fold rollers
  • Integrated batch counter
  • Ultrasonic double sheet control
  • Transport rollers optimized for smooth transport of small products
  • Kicker in vertical delivery unit for batch separation
  • Noise hoods
KL 112 - The machine for the smallest folds

The K112 is specifically designed for the most difficult of tasks, but is still capable of producing at the highest production speed.  It is provided with up to 14 buckle plates, and is perfectly adapted to produce:

Small folded and glued information material
Pharmaceutical instruction leaflets using lightweight printed paper, e.g., outserts
Lottery products

Standard equipment on the KL 112 includes:

  • Buckles fold units with radial roller adjustment
  • Folding rollers in steel / plastic combination
  • Buckle fold units with a pair of slitting rollers as knock-out spindles with one tool for slitting, perforating and scoring
  • Central roller setting by under-laying paper to shorten set-up times
  • Hinged buckle plates with sheet deflectors at the end of buckles
  • Transfer unit if two buckle folding units are supplied
  • MS control
M7/M8 - fully automatic folding machine
The M7/M8 are the profit centres for standard folds and products, especially in specific ‘niche’ areas.  

All feeders with this unit, starting with the first folding unit onwards.  As a result, subsequent extension with aggregates for lucrative additional tasks such as rubber coating, slitting in cycles, doubling paper or gluing products is possible.  The M7 can be supplied in different working widths, from
42 cm up to 162 cm, as well as with up to 16 buckle plates.

Specific application areas for the M7 include:

  • Special multiple folds such as pyramid shaped spiral fold
  • Map folding machine - Multiple folding in first or second unit allows the folding of maps in any style.
  • Placards in formats up to 162cm x 205cm in size
  • Direct mail production
  • Booklet applications - The M 7 multiple pocket folder allows the production of glued or stitched booklets with a high number of pages. With or without separate cover, glued or stitched, booklet labels with a closing tab or without
  • Poster folding machine - Folding of large formats of posters with optimized folding roller diameters and working widths.
  • 2 x 32-page Signature folding - Working widths up to 165 cm for large format folding allow the production of 32-page signatures in 2up.
With both of the above models Herzog + Heymann can supply a large range of optional extras to further enhance available folding solutions.  Two notable items are:

Pick + Place module
The Pick + Place module is designed for universal use in folding systems and mailing systems in any position, or directly following the gatherer and stitcher.  Attachment is possible in all printed product positions.  The ‘GS’ version has a gripper / suction cup combination attachment for products that open at the front.

Tip it (and enhance your message!)
Draw attention to your printed direct mail product by gluing on coins, sweet packages, product samples, credit cards, postcards or small pamphlets!  For example, if your printed product advertises your company and the key to the front door is attached, this sends out a very ‘welcoming’ message and you can be certain of receiving a very positive response!  Additional attention can also be achieved if your attachment is glued on to you printed product at an angle.

DRUPA 2016

Although Friedheim International does not have a stand at DRUPA 2016, the majority of the companies that Friedheim represents in the UK & Ireland will be participating – Herzog + Heymann being one of them:

Hall 6 / Stands B40-1 / B40-2

Sharing a stand as part of the MBO Group, Herzog + Heymann will be highlighting four specialty finishing systems at DRUPA.  Creasing and grooving finishing technology, a Vario line for merging individual sheets, and new pharmaceutical finishing technology will all be on display. 

Certain to receive a lot of attention will be the new ‘Stamina’ line – a folding carton system with an integrated rotary die-cutter from Bograma AG.  By combining the rotary die-cutting and folder-gluer processes, printers gain the ability to produce ‘nick-less’ folding cartons in one pass – thereby eliminating the need for additional production steps like refining, because the product is cut without holding points that are required in a flatbed die-cutting system. The combination also eliminates transfers and staging between the die-cutting and folder-gluer processes because they are occurring in-line – giving printers a streamlined folding carton process. The ‘Stamina’ line also features an integrated camera system that can match pre-printed inserts to the folding carton job. This greatly improves job integrity as it practically eliminates the possibility of accidental job mixing.
