Boost your production of small-sized boxes by installing the BOBST MultiFold function. Increase your production rate, process 2 or 3 blanks in a single pass, improve the final appearance of your boxes.
Designed for large-scale production, the MultiFold is the ultimate solution for box production on your FFG lines. The MultiFold adapts to the size of your machine and is available in two versions: DualFold and TriFold
Increase productivity and quality
On the DualFold version, each sheet in the feeder produces 2 boxes out on the line. On the TriFold version, each sheet in the feeder produces 3 boxes out on the line. In other words, you can double or even triple your production rate and produce even more boxes than before.
However, the MultiFold not only increases your productivity, it also improves the quality of the finished product. This is thanks to a rotary cutter, which optimises your production quality while maintaining BOBST standard specifications. It also uses continuous multi-T belts in the folder, guaranteeing a perfect finish for flat boxes or boxes folded in-line.
A host of applications
The MultiFold can be used for several applications, such as producing small-sized boxes for the agri-foods market (e.g. biscuit boxes, fruit packaging boxes), or for high-quality printing with a special mode, which slows the production speed to enable the ink and varnish to dry optimally.
Don't delay! Choose a device which is quick to deliver a very high return on investment.

For non NT machines (controlled by an MPC2/MPC3i type supervisory system), the MultiFold must be adjusted manually. For NT-type machines, the MultiFold function is automatically controlled by the MPC3 supervisor.
The TEC counter with Siemens S5 PLC on your FFG machine must be replaced with the S7 version. TEC398-type counters installed before 1998 running on software version V51 (or earlier) must be replaced.
To further boost your performance, BOBST is offering an optional one-week training course on the use of rotary die cutters, to enable your teams to master this process.
