Designed to accurately score or crease, while preventing cracking of images when creating folded documents, these best-in-class scoring & creasing machines are used for making spines/creases on greeting cards, menus and all other folded documents made out of a variety of paper stocks. The main difference between Scoring and Creasing is that a Scoring Machine uses a rotary tool to roll along a sheet to create a crease, while a Creasing Machine uses an anvil style arm to create a crease. When should you use which? The Creasing Machines are great for when your document has a lot of ink coverage. The single press arm will help to avoid cracking the ink coverage on the paper. The Creasing Machine is also ideal if you have a textured paper with a lot of fibers because the Scoring Machine might actually tear the fibers apart. Scoring Machines are great for plain paper, or gloss paper, and are very popular in office environments for memos, and other documents with light ink coverage.
A Perforating Machine uses a rotary tool to create evenly spaced holes in a sheet of paper. A perforated edge allows for easy tearing, so this machine if great for brochures with coupons, product information sheets with contact information, and anything else that you can think of where a perforated edge might come in handy.
