MPT Europe BV has developed semi automated pleat and fold solutions.

By adding (servo) pneumatic control to the manual PT and FH solutions the already minimal operator influence on the process can further be reduced. Allowing for recipe controlled and repeatable processes.

In many cases the existing PT systems can be modified to fit onto the controlled systems providing a cost effective upgrade of the equipment.
