Quality Press signs for top-spec MBO folder from Ferrostaal at Ipex

Quality director Ramesh Patel invested in an MBO T800 644R plus presser stacker with Navigator – the highest-spec model in Australia. It will replace a pair of MBO B30 buckle folders.

Patel (second from right) was drawn to the machine’s high level of automation. “We always keep in front with technology,” he told ProPrint.

“We already have the capacity for folding, but the high automation on this machine made us want to buy,” he added.

Rayne Simpson, Ferrostaal’s general manager, print finishing, said the T800 Navigator had the top of the range MBO technology, pointing to the device’s Rapidset automation.

“For Ferrostaal and MBO, this sale will assist us launch the new range of folding equipment released at Ipex into Australia NZ.

“It will be a huge benefit for Quality in productivity and shorter makereadies, in particular slitter shaft setups through the slide out canister system, which is unique to MBO,” added Simpson (right).

The T800 will get to work at the 70-staff company’s Osborne Park factory within the next month, finishing work from its extensive arsenal of B2 presses.

The plant list includes a 10-colour Komori perfector, a five-colour Komori with coater and an eight-colour Heidelberg CD 74.

The five-colour Komori was ordered from Ferrostaal a month ago and is currently being installed.

Quality’s plant list also includes a digital line-up, topped by a Kodak Nexpress 4200 and an HP Indigo 5500.

Patel said he wasn’t planning to invest any further at Ipex but would treat the rest of his trip as an “information-gathering exercise”.
