Formax Expands Atlas Digital Print Finishing Line

September, 2016

DOVER, NH, SEPTEMBER ’16: Formax announces a dramatic expansion to its line of Atlas Digital Print Finishing equipment with the introduction of three new machines: the Atlas C100 and Atlas C200 High-Speed Creasers and the Atlas C300 Automatic Creaser/Folder.

In today’s digital print environment, it’s not enough to simply print a piece; it must be finished properly for a clean, professional look. Traditional scoring uses circular blades which can result in cracking of the printed edge. Formax Atlas Creasers utilize a unique rule-and-matrix mechanism which compresses paper fibers instead of cutting them, virtually eliminating cracks on a creased or folded edge. The creasing matrix is guaranteed for life.

Each Atlas unit features a 7” color touchscreen with user-friendly graphics-based set-up, unlimited programmable jobs, and the unique bottom-suction air-feed system which allows for continuous loading of printed sheets, with no loss of feeding accuracy.

The Atlas C100 and C200 are fully-automatic air-feed creasers with variable speed control to accommodate a wide variety of sheet sizes and thicknesses. With the ability to produce up to 16 creases per sheet, they can process up to 8,500 sheets (8.5” x 11”) or up to 11,000 sheets (6.5” x 8.5”) per hour.

The Atlas C300 Automatic Creaser/Folder provides both high-speed creasing and folding in a single pass, up to 6,000 sheets per hour. The folding process features large-diameter ribbed rollers and patented “flying knife” folding technology to minimize marking of the digital printout. The Atlas C300 can process paper weights up to 400gsm, and includes a digital thickness gauge for accurate measurement.

All three models feature rugged metal construction and a compact footprint, making them ideal additions to small print shops and production facilities with limited space that want to expand their digital print finishing capabilities.
