Our Pleatmaster is designed for a wide range of applications. It stands out due to its excellent pleat height constancy in a wide temperature range. The available working width is between 600 mm and 3,200 mm.

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

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