Folding machine perfs are known for being ragged, puffy and unsightly. Most won't run through a laser printer or copier without jamming up or falling apart. Folding machine micro-perf blades are known for breaking teeth.
Until now, if you wanted a micro perf on your job, you would have to run it through a separate operation on your press or die cutter using special steel rule dies or press perf...OR run it on a specially equipped stand-alone perforator...OR just sent it out.
Today, with our unique Micro Perforator Tools, you can produce a flat, nearly invisible micro-perf at up to 72 teeth per inch, in-line on your MBO, Stahl, Horizon, Baumfolder or MB folding machine, as well as on Rosback and Rollem scoring machines.
One of these reams of 24# bond is micro-perfed...
How do your folding machine perfs compare?
Conventional folding machine perf systems are well known for distorting the sheet in three directions: downward, as the perf blade enters the sheet, upward as it exits (Figure 1, below left) and horizontally, as it pushes the paper away from the counter knife (Figure 1, below right). Take a look at what the perfed sheets look like coming off your folding machine. You'll probably agree, not only are they unsightly, but the lighter stocks simply do not run well through laser printers or color copiers, breaking apart or jamming up as the jagged edges catch inside.
Unlike these conventional perf systems, our Micro-Perforator is designed to cut through only to the bottom of the sheet and not beyond - much like a precise kiss-cut. The knife area actually touching the sheet is extremely small compared to a regular perf blade.
And since we're not cutting against a counter knife, we can use a much stronger double-bevel blade with extremely fine tooth patterns.
This means you get a cleaner, finer cut equal to-and often better-than what you'd get on a die cutter. So the sheet lays flat and passes easily through any laser printer, copier or press.
We hear that dozens of times at every trade show we do. Clutching a sample micro-perfed sheet from our display and approaching our stand, they think they've got us in a big mistake..."hey chief, I hate to tell you this but you forgot to perf these sheets!"
Seconds later, as we tear along the nearly invisible micro perf, their amazement outweighs their embarrassment and they're ready to talk...
