TECH-NI-FOLD CREASING SOLUTION: A SIMPLE AND VERY EFFECTIVE DEVICE THAT CONCLUSIVELY DISMISSES THE SCORING THEORY.
Nov 10, 2016

Previously, the steel score that’s used in most devices was only designed to apply a slight indentation in pre-folded sheets so that right angle folds can be made more accurately.  However, this hasn’t stopped literally thousands of folding machine operators from trying to use it to stop single sheets from cracking.
Unfortunately, no matter how much time operators spend trying to create a deep enough crease to aid the perfect fold, it usually ends up with the substrate filters being crushed, split or damaged.
The truth of the matter is that UV varnish or gloss-finished materials are extremely prone to these issues. Dry and brittle toner-based digital stocks are often cut by half by such harsh, metallic applications.
Tech-ni-fold creasing device was developed to replace destructive scoring blades with a softer patented creasing solution. Made in circular moulds, it penetrates the material up to three times deeper, without splitting or damaging the stock. The forgiving and gentle application manipulates and stretches even the most difficult print and stock combinations known to us, including oven baked web offset, UV coated and toner based digital applications. Our “rubber technology” gets to work directly on top of the area that is prone to cracking.
Besides, the V-shape created by such configurations is obviously ideal for preparing text weight substrates for cross folding, because the score impression is sharp and concise. However, you will see how the V-shape exposes critical flaws on cover stock materials. If you were to look into a magnifying glass at the score, just after it was applied, you would already see fibres breaking away along a thin line in the centre of the impression. This is often referred to as a “ploughing motion,” in other words the blade is creating a sharp ridge, damaging everything in its path, and effecting the quality of the substrate either side.
Tech-ni-fold succeeded in meeting clients requirements and produced the world’s first and only rotary creasing solution that totally eliminates fibre cracking; and named it the Tri-Creaser.
The Tri-Creaser range of products eliminates completely fibre cracking 100% on stock ranges 100-350gsm. It will also produce a crease that is better than a flatbed Cylinder impression, with multiple crease settings for any print/stock combination and works like magic on difficult toner based digital outputs
The device works just as well when it creases and folds against the grain, and as fast as your folding machine can run with no limitations on speed. It takes only minutes to set up and seconds to change from one crease setting to another. With a return on investment within 1-3 jobs runs. The tri-creaser saves time and expensive outsourcing cost.
