ElectroCreaser – Fast & Felxible Finishing

Morgana ElectroCrease

 

ElectroCreaser – Fast & Felxible Finishing

The ElectroCreaser is designed for the smaller printer or inplant, the ElectroCreaswer is available in 36 & 52cm widths with two creasing profiles. Easily set up to handle jobs needing multiple creases. Handles stock up to 0.015″ (approx 150lb cover)*.

The semi-automatic ElectroCreaser is the ideal unit for printers who need something faster than a manual creaser – such as the Morgana DocuCrease – but do not have the volume of work to justify a fully automated machine like the Morgana AutoCreaser.Creasing versus Scoring. Traditional rotary scoring machines use circular blades that are in constant motion as the stock passes through them. This creates a ploughing action that actually cuts through the top fibres of the paper or card in order to create a score. Inevitably this weakens the paper and encourages cracking. In contrast, the Morgana DocuCrease employs a unique creasing rule and matrix as illustrated overleaf, that eliminates tearing and, therefore, cracking.Key Product Features

  • Fast & easy to setup
  • Semi-automatic
  • Foot switch operation
  • Takes stock up to 0.015″ (approx 150lb cover)*
  • Rule and matrix guaranteed for life
  • Heavy duty
  • 36cm or 52cm sizes
  • Crease without cracking

The ElectroCreaser is ideal for the smaller printer or inplant. A compact, table-top unit, it is fast to set up and simplicity itself to operate.

Like other Morgana products, it employs a blade and matrix action which, unlike scoring, will not cause any damage to the substrate, and will produce a superb crease on stocks up to 0.015″ (approx 150lb cover)* including laminated material.

Unlike scoring, which can damage card or paper, the Morgana blade and matrix method ensures a clean sharp fold without damage to the substrate. It provides 2 creasing widths as standard, 0.04″ and 0.06″ – with the ability to change from one to another in seconds. It also has a special “Super Speed” stop system, which greatly simplifies jobs that call for multiple creases. The creasing matrix is electronically activated by a foot switch for increased accuracy and productivity.

DigiCreaser – Creasing Made Easy

Morgana DigiCreaser

 

Digi Creaser – Creasing Made Easy 

The Morgana manufactured DigiCreaser fills the gap between our manual machines and fully automatic machines like the best selling AutoCreaser Pro range.

Creasing versus Scoring. Traditional rotary scoring machines use circular blades that are in constant motion as the stock passes through them. This creates a ploughing action that actually cuts through the top fibres of the paper or card in order to create a score. Inevitably this weakens the paper and encourages cracking. In contrast, the Morgana DigiCreaser employs a unique creasing rule and matrix as illustrated overleaf, that eliminates tearing and, therefore, cracking.

Key Product Features

  • Fast & easy to setup
  • Fully automatic after feeding
  • Bench top with small footprint
  • Takes stock up to 0.015″ (approx 150lb cover)*
  • Rule and matrix guaranteed for life
  • 4000 sheets per hour
  • Memory for storing repeat jobs
  • Adjustable crease depth & square
  • Perforating as standard
  • Crease without cracking

Whilst it’s cost is little over half that of an AutoCreaser, it offers exactly the same creasing quality and accuracy. This is because it uses an identical matrix and rule action, with the same technology to control both the positioning of the creases, but also to give a completely consistent creasing depth. With the rule and matrix manufactured from high quality tooled steel we can guarantee this mechanism for life.

In instances where the crease has to be set to an image which is not correctly registered you can swing the rule/matrix mechanism to compensate. The speed at which the sheets are taken into the in-put rollers can also be adjusted.

The DigiCreaser is no slouch when it comes to productivity. All functions are fully automatic after feeding and the unit can operate at speeds up to 4,000 sheets per hour. Up to 9 creases can be achieved in one pass and the sophisticated controls enable jobs to be stored and retrieved for repeat work.

The class leading specification of the DigiCreaser includes a maximum sheet size of 24.8″ x 12.9″ and it will handle weights of stock up to 0.015″ (approx 150lb cover)* including laminated material.

The DigiCreaser has a Head-up display for greater ease of use. This is particularly intuitive as it provides the operator with a series of prompts which are actioned by a single controller. These include positioning of the creases, setting the speed of the machine, storing jobs and counting facility.

Standard features includes the same high quality perforating as the larger AutoCreasers. The perforating wheels are available with a variety of teeth to suit all applications.

The DigiCreaser can be supplied as either a bench top or floor standing model.

AutoCreaser Pro 33 – Automatically Calculate Creases

Morgana AutoCreaser Pro 33

The AutoCreaser, made in the UK by Morgana, provides the complete solution to the problem of cracking that occurs when folding digitally printed output. It is equally effective in dealing with conventionally printed card, laminates or cross grained stock.

Creasing versus Scoring. Traditional rotary scoring machines use circular blades that are in constant motion as the stock passes through them. This creates a ploughing action that actually cuts through the top fibres of the paper or card in order to create a score. Inevitably this weakens the paper and encourages cracking. In contrast, the Morgana AutoCreaser Pro 50 employs a unique creasing rule and matrix as illustrated overleaf, that eliminates tearing and, therefore, cracking.

Key Product Features

  • 7″ SmartScreen touch screen
  • 27.5″ x 19.6″ sheet size
  • Intuitive and easy to use
  • Fully automatic
  • Up to 16 creases per sheet
  • Takes stock up to 0.015″ (approx 150lb cover)*
  • Rule and matrix guaranteed for life
  • 8500 sheets per hour
  • Unlimited alpha numeric memory
  • Adjustable crease depth & square
  • Perforating as standard
  • Crease without cracking

The new intuitive 7″ SmartScreen controls all the main functions of the AutoCreaser Pro 50. Using the screen is simplicity itself. Key in the sheet length (popular sizes are pre-set), touch the fold type for the finished product (letter, gate etc) and press the green button. The AutoCreaser Pro 50 will automatically calculate where the creases need to be and set them accordingly.

Any minor changes to the crease position can be made by touching an arrow in the relevant direction. The productivity of the AutoCreaser Pro 50 has been improved with a massive 30% increase in speed with no loss of accuracy. Now running at 8,500 8.5″ x 11″ sheets per hour, and an astonishing 11,000 6.5″ x 8.5″ sph this is our most productive creaser to date. The increased sheet size of 27.5″ x 19.6″ can be extended with an optional tray making sheet lengths of 35.4″ possible.

The AutoCreaser Pro 50 has the new Morgana PosiFeed feeding system. The drum stops as the vacuum pulls the sheet down before the drum starts to feed. This significant change will enable the feeder to be piled higher and feed the most difficult of stocks.

All settings and adjustments are made using the new SmartScreen and as only symbols are used, operation couldn’t be simpler. An alpha-numeric memory allows an unlimited number of jobs to be stored and named as you choose. This makes job recall much easier as you can use your own job name and numbers for storage.

An alpha-numeric memory allows an unlimited number of jobs to be stored and named as you choose. This makes job recall much easier as you can use your own job name and numbers for storage. Any changes to the suction drum, feed method, crease position and engineering settings are all made through the SmartScreen which we have developed and designed to make the AutoCreaser Pro 50 the easiest machine to operate whilst offering levels of sophistication never before seen at this price point.

Perforation comes as standard on the AutoCreaser Pro range with a wide variety of wheels available to suit all applications.
