Folding and creasing are crucial processes when finishing printed documents, are essential for products such as books, magazines and promotional materials, and make it possible for a large sheet to fit into an envelope. Creasing forms the fold so the ink doesn't crack. A third process, perforating, is used when producing media with tear-away panels.
There are many options to consider when folding or creasing and the equipment available reflects these requirements. These considerations include output volume, fold pattern, fold quality and paper weight. When folding a laminated, varnished or digitally printed piece, creasing the fold line is recommended to prevent the finish from cracking and splitting.
Skandacor's extensive range of folding / creasing equipment includes a variety of three-in-one systems which are also capable of perforating, although your print jobs may not require all three processes. Our folders and creasers are available with manual or automated setup in tabletop, floor standing, friction-fed and air-fed models. Folders may use a buckle fold or a knife fold, or a combination of both when creating the fold.
