CreaseStream Mini Standard Scoring Machine

The CreaseStream Mini Standard Scoring Machine is the next step up from hand creasing or foot-switch operated creasing machines

The Mini Standard creases jobs at up to six times faster than those entry-level machines. It will crease or perforate at up to about 1,000 sheets per hour!

Unlike hand creasing machines, you can do 2 or 3 creases simultaneously.  Or you can do a combination of multiple creases and perforations.  This means you get significant increases in productivity over the smaller hand-operated machines in which you have to do one tedious crease after another.

 

The Mini Standard is great for shops that need to crease or perforate a small volume of short runs daily.  It will handle a few hundred up to a couple thousand or more per day.  If you get the occasional longer run it will handle it no problem.  If you’re doing a few thousand pieces daily you may want to consider the Quick-Feed or Auto-Feed versions.

 

All Mini machines use the patented Tri-Creaser™ to eliminate fiber cracking on digital or offset stocks, regardless of grain direction.  Technifold’s Micro Perforator can also be added if you need to produce die-quality perforated sheets that can run through laser printers, copiers, or digital presses.

Frequently Asked Questions about our Mini Series

[fa icon="plus-square"] What types of paper stock can I run?
You can crease (score) 100# text up through 120# Cover or 14 pt.  You'll find the Tri-Creasers performs well on digital text stocks (60#-100#) and will typically handle a crease application far better than comparable offset text weight stocks.
[fa icon="plus-square"] How many sheets per hour can I produce?
You will easily average about 300-500 sheets per hour; depending on the job.  An operator with a bit of experience could get up to 1500+ pieces per hour as shown in our demonstration videos.
[fa icon="plus-square"] How long does it take to set up the machine?
For jobs requiring only 1 or 2 creases, the typical set-up should take only a few minutes.  More complex jobs with multiple creases may take slighly longer.
[fa icon="plus-square"] Do I need any special training?
Nope...unskilled staff members will learn how to set up the Mini in one short training session.  The CreaseStream Mini series was designed with ease of opertaion in mind!
[fa icon="plus-square"] How long do the creasing ribs last?
On high-volume production folding and scoring machines, our creasing ribs will produce anywhere from 500,000 sheets up to 1 million sheets or more, depending on the stocks, before needing replacment.  For a low-volume machine such as the Mini, you'll rarely wear out a rib.  If you do, replacements are only $27 each.
[fa icon="plus-square"] Can I perforate on the CreaseStream Mini?
Of course you can!  By simply adding an optional Micro Perforator to your Mini, perforating can be included in most jobs to make your life that much easier!
[fa icon="plus-square"] Is there any maintenance required?
Not really...simply wipe the machine down to keep it free from dust; especially on the 25mm shafts.  This ensures the tools will slide freely and insert into the bushings easily.
[fa icon="plus-square"] What kind of a guarantee do you have?
We have a 6 MONTH, UNCONDITIONAL, 100% PERFORMANCE GUARANTEE!  If after using the CreaseStream Mini for 6 whole months, you are not completely satisfied for any reason, simply ship the machine back to us (in reasonabley good shape) and we'll refund 100% of your purchase price.
