(Waynesboro, Va.) McClung Companies has installed a Heidelberg Stahl TH82 automated pallet-fed folder and a BR Moll VersaFold table with fold and taping capabilities. The Stahl folder is a major addition to bindery’s equipment and combines level two automation with a presser/stacker delivery. The VersaFold table applies tape to direct mail return postcards as well as adding folding options.
“The new folder gives us a significant increase in production speed and considerable savings on make-ready,” noted JoAnne Estes, Bindery Coordinator. “The folder automatically sets the roller and plate settings, and with the pallet-based feeder, it becomes a one-person operation. The forms compress, batch count and stack while the operator unloads the continuous delivery, saving time and eliminating repetitive motion.”
