Today, a Speedmaster XL 106 can run at maximum speeds of up to 18,000 sheets per hour. An older folder running at just 6,000 sheets per hour will not be able to support the capacity of the newer press. You may find yourself having to run multiple folders to keep up with demand or find that overtime in your shop is eroding your bottom line.

With the revolutionary Stahlfolder TH 82-P, Heidelberg’s peak performance approach expands to its successful Stahlfolder line. The new leading-edge “P” technology feeds a stream with an overlap of up to half the sheet length in the parallel and cross folding stations. This enables a 50% higher throughput at the same linear speed. Three sheets can now pass through each fold station at the same speed and time that it took before to process two sheets when producing 16-page signatures.
