Medical Production Technology Europe BV today presents the PTF-240-M Balloon Pleat & Fold machine. This machine has a 240 mm long servo-pneumatic pleating unit and a 240 mm long servo controlled fold unit with force and position control. The pleaters can be quickly exchanged (typical exchange time for this design-series is 10 seconds) and the machine can accommodate 3,4,5 or 6 fold pleaters. The pleaters and zero-gap fold head can optionally be heated to 85C max.
The PTF-240-M has manual product handling. The product is positioned and moved between the pleat and fold position by the operator. The machine has two inflation/deflation ports allowing for a secondary process either in between the pleat and fold step or after the fold step, without using too much production time. The PTF-240-M is an addition to the earlier presented fully automated systems (PTF-120) and the systems with product tensioning (PTF-240-T)
As with all the Medical Production Technology Europe BV machines this new Balloon Peat & Fold machine is built with a very high quality standard and is easy to use and maintain.
