The PTF-240-T automatic pleat and fold machine has been developed for long balloon products (upto 220 mm balloons can be processed).

The machine has internal tensioning systems to keep the product tensioned while the balloons are pleated and folded. Doing this ensures the inner bodies are not caught in the pleater heads during the pleating action. And super crisp pleats are the result!

The machine has quick interchangeable pleater heads (typically pleaters are changed in a matter of seconds) and a servo controlled folding head. The machine can be equipped with 3,4,5 or 6 pleat pleaterheads.

The pleat and fold heads can be heated (max 90C).
