Product 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.

Formax presents the Atlas C150 Automatic Pile Feed Creaser. The Atlas C150 is a powerful, accurate, easy to use auto feeding creaser that meets the quality demands of high-volume digital finishing in today's print world. On-demand digital printing has become the standard for fast turnaround and short run jobs, finishing the piece properly for a professional high-quality look is a key part of the process when it comes to folding digitally printed pieces. Creasing is essential to avoid cracking and tearing on the folded edges as shown here; without creasing the folded piece is cracked and looks of poor quality while the creased piece looks clean and professional. Accuracy, power, durability, and ease of use separate this auto feed creaser from all the rest. The Atlas C150 features a powerful air suction pile feeder with lead edge tracking registration and multiple sensors for accurate feeding of paper weights up to 400 gsm. Automatic adjustments and a state-of-the-art intuitive color touchscreen ensure quick and easy setup. Let's take a closer look at how the C150 creaser works. To begin, load the printed pieces onto the feeder and set the feeding guides, the standard extension tray can be pulled out to accommodate sheets up to 15 inches wide by 51 inches long. With the sheets in position, it's time to enter the creasing configuration. The Atlas C150 is pre-programmed for nine popular crease types in six different sizes along with five settings for perfect bound book covers. In addition, users can program and save an unlimited number of custom jobs using the color touch screen panel. Select the crease type and paper size, the C150 will adjust the crease settings. Automatically switching between crease settings is easy, simply select the new crease type and press enter, with the settings entered press Start. Sheets are processed consistently at speeds of up to 8,500 per hour. Multiple sensors monitor the infeed for variations and make adjustments on the fly for enhanced performance and accuracy. The quick release dual creasing module allows for the option of up and down creasing or creasing and cross perforating in a single pass. The quick release system requires no tools which allows creasing and perforating matrices to be changed in seconds. Simply push down and pull to release the top cover, remove the matrix, rotate or replace the matrix then reinstall the top cover. Let's take a closer look at the rugged and innovative design of the creaser matrix. Atlas creasers feature a heavy-duty creasing mechanism which utilizes a channel and anvil to create the crease. This embosses the printed sheet and eliminates cracking of the folded edge providing a clean professional piece. A rotary perforator tool is standard equipment which is easily attached to the exit feed rollers to add perforations at the same time the piece is being creased. An optional cross perforation kit is available that can be run in line with both the creasing matrix and the rotary perforator to maximize creasing and perforation finishing options. The Formax Atlas C150 Automatic Creaser is the most versatile and efficient creaser on the market with the power, ease of setup, and operation durability and accuracy essential for today's digital print finishing.
