Buckle plates play an integral role in the folding process. They are responsible for ensuring greater quality, shorter set up times, and increased production efficiency. Here’s an insight on the different varieties of buckle plates available for new & Used Stahl Folding Machines.

  1. Small format

This serves as the ideal solution for processing miniature foldings. In fact, it is also capable of processing products having a fold length of just about 35 millimeters.

  1. Buckle plate with swing deflector

This may be used as either a sheet deflector or buckle plate. Thanks to the handwheel, the position and angle of the sheet stop may be adjusted precisely. Even if it is used as a sheet deflector, the sheet stop remains exactly in its position.

  1. Pneumatic Gate fold

This enables print shops to produce a range of three-fold gate fold products. There is the digital control module ACC 2.4, which is responsible for ensuring the exact switching time and pneumatic opening & closing of the deflector profile. Running at a speed of 15,000 cycles per hour, this is the perfect equipment for large run lengths. With the help of spindles, it positions the sheet stop at its precise position, that too with an accuracy of 0.1 millimeters.

  1. Combination

These buckle plates help the print shops to experience shorter set-up times, whilst lessening the burden for the operators. This is possible because the activity of switching from the sheet deflector to the buckle plate may be carried out without moving the buckle plate from the folding machine. They also facilitate carrying out of precise adjustments in the various buckle spaces, such as pre-tension and clearance.

  1. Motor-driven combination

These come equipped with two spindle drives that enable parallel movement of the sheet stop as well as motor-driven corrections of angle and deflector. They also enable storing of adjustments, which may be retrieved at any time in case of repeat jobs.
