M&R announces the addition of the Amscomatic K-950 to M&R’s line of folding and packaging equipment. This high-speed automatic folding system is designed to precisely fold a wide variety of garments and other textile items.
The Amscomatic K/950 is engineered for dependable performance and low maintenance in demanding, high-production environments, and can be easily integrated with other Amscomatic equipment to create a highly-productive folding/labeling/bagging/sealing system. A significant technological breakthrough – M&R’s patented bottom pulling dual-belt (upper and lower) transport system – carries garments on a moving belt instead of the stationary plate used on competing systems. The K-950’s dual-belt makes it easy to fold garments printed with high density or gel inks.
Updated folding plates electronically adjust over a wider 13-33 cm (5” to 13”) range while staying parallel to each other. This allows tighter, more consistent folding on all types of products. Wide transfer belts in the second-fold area minimize maintenance and improve performance. The entire garment transport system uses a timing belt drive, which runs quieter and requires less long-term maintenance than chain & sprocket drives.
