Our Pleatmaster is designed for a wide range of applications. It shines with excellent pleat height consistency over a wide temperature range. The available working width ranges from 600 mm to 3,200 mm.

Its electronically adjustable pleat height range is from 5 to 104 mm (standard) or 5 to 153 mm (optional). With the aid of so-called pleating programs, different sequences of folds, such as "W" and "M" folds, as well as more complex patterns if required, can be specified by the user. By loading alternative pleating programs, the machine automatically retools itself so that the respective pleating sequence can be produced.

A large touch panel with a Windows 10 interface is available for easy operation of the Pleatmaster. The user interface is designed to be intuitive and self-explanatory.


inexpensive to buy, worth its weight in gold in production.
