G-Grafix Flexo Folder Gluer

Product Description

The G-Grafix Flexo Folder Gluer has a simple and robust design that is easier to operate and maintain than previous generations of Flexo Folder Gluers. This alone makes it a valuable addition to your production line; but that’s not all.

The human machine interaction (HMI) is intuitive and user-friendly for both operators and maintenance personnel.

The Shark Anvil Trimming System trims the anvil while the machine is in operation to address uneven anvil wear and reduce downtime.

Lead-Edge Feeder with Extended Feed
The MarquipWardUnited Extended Feed Lead-Edge Feeder combines long wearing urethane feed belts with extreme gripping characteristics, a vacuum table, low crush feed rolls, and an extended stroke to provide registration and maximum sheet control while maintaining physical and aesthetic sheet quality. An optional Variable Stroke Feeder is available to minimize board crush.

Flexographic Print Section
The MarquipWardUnited flexographic print station provides precision control of registration by a harmonic drive register system. Impression, sheet transfer, and ink metering provide the capability to print top quality, value-added: process, fine screen, and block work with quick and easy changeover for specific jobs.

Vacuum Transfer Print Stations
This transfer system provides constant surface speed for life of the belt. This minimizes problems of warped board and enhances print registration.

Folding Section
The folding rails allow for a gentle, gradual rate of fold for quality and consistency. A vacuum over the entire rail length dramatically reduces fishtail and folder jams. The folding rods and holders provide increased range of motion, more ergonomic adjustment and better durability.

Forming and Ironing Wheels
A proper score is essential to produce a square box and acceptable manufacturer’s joint. The Forming Wheels pressure the box to achieve the desired joint gap and the Iron Wheels suppress the boxes to give a consistent edge and 'memory' to the fold.

Counter Ejector
MarquipWardUnited offers a top loading counter ejector on the G-Grafix for an economical, simplistic method for stacking, counting and ejecting bundles.

A Legacy of Durability
The G-Grafix line maintains the great quality of high- performance, accurate feeders, rugged rotary die cut sections and the ability to continuously handle a wide-range of product designs and configurations.
