Description

The Atlas C150 from Formax is a premium automatic creaser and perforator that creates professional finishing for paper weights from 80 to 400gsm. The extending feed table pulls out to accommodate sheets as large as 15 inches wide and 51 inches long. Automatic adjustment of the top-loading vacuum infeed allows for quick handling of media stacks up to 7.8 inches high. The optical sensors control the sheet separation by consistently monitoring the “float zone” between sheets and making any necessary adjustments automatically and “on the fly”. The exit tray/outfeed stacker can hold your processed pages in a neat, easy-to-manage stack up to 4.7 inches high.

Setup and operation of this powerful creasing machine is simple with the intuitive color touchscreen control panel. To start processing your job, just follow the instructions on the screen to set your sheet length, weight, and fold type; the Atlas C150 automatically calculates the crease locations based on that information and adjusts accordingly. You can easily select any of the pre-programmed common sheet sizes and jobs or create your own. The storage capacity in the machine allows for unlimited storage of custom jobs for quick, accessible recall; save every job for your repeat customers and make repeat order production faster and easier than ever before. It also includes an in-line rotary perforation kit, which allows for creasing and perforating in a single pass.

The Atlas C150 can be equipped with an optional 2nd creasing/perforating blade kit that allows for single-pass up and down creasing along with cross/partial perforation for hinges, book covers, multi-panel brochures, and tear-off applications. An optional cross perforating blade kit can be used to combine creasing and cross perforating in a single pass for a variety of jobs including brochures with tear-offs. The quick-change creasing matrices are easy to swap in and out in only a few seconds and without any tools, keeping your production room moving with less down-time between jobs. You can also add an optional ultra-narrow creasing blade kit, and the AC-10 Folder which enables users to crease, perforate, and fold in-line.

Incorporating high-speed output, incredibly user friendly features, and the strength and power to handle large media sizes at high-volume industrial levels, the Atlas C150 is a powerhouse addition to today’s digital print environment.
