The PTF-240-M has been developed to pleat and fold balloons upto 200 mm. The machine is semi automatic as the product has to be transfered from the pleat to the fold station by the operator. The easy to use product clamp and slide system uses a guide plate to force the operator to only position according a certain pattern.

The machine has two inflation and deflation connections. This allows processing of the product after the pleat and fold step still connected to the vacuum, when the new product is already clamped.

The machine has a servo controlled pleat head and a servo controlled fold head.

The quick exchange pleaters allow the system to be setup for 3,4,5 or 6 fold within seconds.

Unique in the design is the ability to change the pleat direction from CW two CCW just by placing the right module
