The FlexFold AT180 towel folder is the perfect solution for folding and stacking all kinds of towels, garments, fitted sheets and other tumbler dried pieces.
An operator puts the piece onto the infeed conveyor. This piece is automatically recognized by sensors and will thereafter automatically be folded and sorted onto the dedicated stacker station. Due to this automatic sorting system, no manual pre-sort is needed. As a result, each folding program can handle up to 4 different pieces, which are automatically recognized, folded and dispatched on dedicated stacker station. After the preset stack height is achieved, pile with folded pieces is put onto the final incline conveyor belt.
The FlexFold AT180 is able to fold pieces up to maximum dimensions of 180 x 120 cm.
Pieces are put on the infeed conveyor belt. For a perfect feeding quality, the conveyor belt can be selected between three running modes: automatic start, after pressing a push button (mostly used for garments), automatic start after infeed sensor is covered or continuously running.
LONGITUDINAL FOLD PRINCIPLE
The longitudinal fold(s) are made by position controlled folding templates in combination with a pulsed air flow. Once the piece enters the longitudinal fold section, the length (and possibly width) is measured and the folding templates are automatically adjusted.
CROSS FOLD PRINCIPLE
After the longitudinal fold section, the piece enters the cross fold section. Up to 2 cross folds can be made, offering all kinds of folding patterns required nowadays.
