The Formax Atlas C102 Automatic Air-Feed Programmable Creaser/Perforator is a fully-automatic, user-friendly solution to solve the problem of cracking in toner-based digital prints. It utilizes a unique creasing matrix to compresses paper fibers instead of cutting them, virtually eliminating cracks on a creased or folded edge.
The quick-release blade system makes it easy to swap between creasing and perforating blades and requires no tools. It is featured with a variable creasing depth, which can be adjusted using a simple sliding lever, to accommodate different paper weights. An extended infeed deck now accommodates sheets up to 35" L x 13" W. The height-adjustable outfeed stacker can be moved to match the paper stack height and keeps processed sheets neatly organized for quick and easy removal.
The Atlas C102 is equipped with 7" Color Touchscreen that features a full color graphics-based control panel. Operators can easily use one of the six pre-programmed settings or run custom jobs. Set-up and save jobs in just minutes, simply enter the sheet size and number of creases and the crease positions are set automatically. Users can program and save up to an unlimited number of jobs using alpha-numeric naming for easy retrieval. The Atlas C102 automatically calculates the crease positions based on paper size and sets them accordingly. The powerful bottom-suction air-feed system allows for continuous loading of sheets, which increases productivity while maintaining accuracy, even with heavier stocks.
The Atlas C102 is a fully-automatic air-feed creaser offers variable speed control to accommodate a wide variety of sheet sizes and thicknesses. The Atlas Creaser line features a powerful bottom-suction air-feed system which allows for continuous loading of documents. The feed drum pauses as the vacuum pulls down the sheet to ensure accurate feeding. This permits a greater number of sheets to be loaded at once, including heavier stocks. The feed gap is easily set by turning the gate disk left or right to accommodate the paper thickness
The rugged and accurate creasing matrix is guaranteed for life. The heavy-duty creasing matrix uses a channel and anvil to create the crease. This embosses the printed sheet and eliminates cracking of the folded edge, providing a clean, professional piece. The creasing angle and pressure can be adjusted to accommodate different paper weights to provide the most accurate crease possible. With the ability to produce up to 16 creases per sheet, it can process up to 11,000 sheets (6.5" x 8.5") per hour. Perforating capabilities are also standard, with a wide range of perf wheels to suit many different applications. Options include a cross and part perforation kit, narrow sheet guide, narrow creasing matrix, and a variety of perforating wheels in fine and coarse teeth configurations.
This Formax Atlas C102 Automatic Air-Feed Programmable Creaser/Perforator has a rugged metal construction and a compact footprint that is ideal for small print shops and production facilities that want to expand their digital print finishing capabilities.
