Double folding machine KST is the latest innovation in product development. Welded steel frame provides a strong body for sheets bending. New KST is more efficient and quieter. Its speed demanding movements carried out by servo-controlled electric motors; the power and strength for the sheet bending by hydraulic actuators. The hydraulic unit has silent double action cogwheel pumps. Thanks to product development travel of pneumatically actuated grippers has increased, and the adhesive strength improved.

VP5000PC 3D software is easy to use and can be customised individually. Network Interface allows remote access to libraries and profiles editing, import and export are easy.

Open hem pressing and rounded corner profile folding as standard features.

Manual and automatic mode.
