The Palamides Alpha has been developed as a universal delivery for the processing of folds, especially signatures. The products are collected by the machine, stacked and the cleanly shaken piles are delivered to a storage table. The operator removes the shaken stacks from the delivery table, ergonomically favorable, and does not have to bump the products anymore. This means that the performance of the folding machine can be fully exploited even after several hours of production without fatiguing the operator. The alpha is free of marking, which means no smearing of freshly printed products. In order to reduce set-up times, the machine is largely automatically adjusted. The pressing station can be opened at the push of a button, which considerably simplifies the cleaning of the press rolls and the removal of double sheets.
