Horizon AFV-566FKT iCE – Folder

The automated Horizon AFV-566FKT Folder is a 6-buckle folder with integrated knife/buckle cross-folding that contains 44 fully-automated settings for improved efficiency, more operator-friendly production, and reduced waste and make-ready. Roller gaps and buckle plates can be easily fine-tuned from the improved touchscreen control panel, and automated stop adjustment under the knife and trailing edge roller adjustments reduce operator intervention and maximize machine uptime.

The Horizon AFV-566FKT comes equipped with iCE LiNK, a cloud-based monitoring tool from Horizon that can also handle KPI analysis, PM schedule/alerts, JDF/JMF workflow, scheduling, job creation, editing, and more.

Advantages at a Glance
