ColourCo has upgraded its creasing and folding capability with the installation of a Morgana DigiFold Pro XL. The new machine joins an existing Morgana DigiFold Pro and a Morgana AutoCreaser at ColourCo’s premises in Southampton. 

The DigiFold Pro XL is a heavy-duty automatic creasing and folding system designed to complement mid-to-high volume digital and offset production presses. ColourCo’s model can handle stock sizes ranging from 210 to 1300mm in length and is able to fold up to 6000 A4 sheets per hour, rising to 7500 in crease only mode. The machine, which is able to create up to 30 creases per sheet, has a maximum loading capacity 200mm, and a stock range of 80 to 400gsm.

Kevin West, managing director of ColourCo, commented on the machine. ‘It’s fantastic,’ he said. ‘We don’t have any spare room here so versatile finishing equipment is an essential. We’ve had a long-standing relationship with Morgana. Their equipment is ideal for our needs, and the latest DigiFold Pro XL is an excellent example of that: creasing, folding, perforating – it’s amazing!

‘We are now able to produce a six-page A5 brochure which has a perforated section on the last page, all in one pass – creasing, perfing, and folding. A real time saver.’

Ray Hillhouse, VP of sales and marketing for the Plockmatic Group Offline Business Unit, added, ‘It’s great to be able to continue our relationship with Kevin and the ColourCo team. The versatility of the DigiFold machine frequently comes into its own in the smaller premises, where space is at a premium. This latest DigiFold Pro XL product really is the finishing device that can speed up production of a great many of the UK’s print businesses.’
