ROWE Offline and Online folder – Incredible flexibility
The Rowe VarioFold Compact is a modular folding system that can be configured as either an online or offline folder. This unique modular system means the folder can be set up to the user’s precise requirements. The robust build quality and modern design along with the quiet operation allows it to located in an open space office or print room. The Rowe folder will save staff hours of manual drawing folding time, which can be tedious and time consuming.
Engineered to the highest level, the fold system produces a high quality, crisply folded drawing at an impressive 10 A0 drawings per minute. The 12 folder pre -sets allows the user to select the fold pattern that suits their requirements.
In the basic configuration, the Rowe folder can be placed against a wall as the folded drawings exit into the front delivery tray. This could be important for
offices or print rooms with very little space. The folder can be floor stood on its height adjustable floor stand or it can be desk mounted using the folder’s desk stand.
The 12 pre-sets allow the user to select the finished fold or add a compensation fold, which could then be punched. This is especially useful for drawings that are needed to be kept in binders. The folder has 2 standard Cross Fold options of 297mm and 305mm widths, but if a special width is required, the fold pattern can be saved in the 2 favorite keys.
The Rowe folder has 3 further App’s that can be installed if longer drawings require folding. APP SE increases the fanfold capability to 4 meters . APP PRO, increases this to 30 metres as well as increasing the crossfold width between 180mm to 420mm. APP Endless allows the user to fold drawing of unlimited length.
For drawings over 4 meters, the rear delivery tray needs to be fitted. Again the Rowe folder offers two rear delivery tray options. The standard tray holds up to 25 folded drawings or alternatively, the high volume motorised tray will hold up to 75 folded drawings.
The modular construction allows the folder to be configured to work as an online folder by way of adding a bridge unit, which connects the folder to the printing device. The current online options available are for HP’s wide format T series printer range which include the T920, T930, T1500, T1530, T2500 & T2530 as well as Rowe’s wide format printer range.
When the online bridge unit option is chosen, this also includes a feed table to allow drawings from another device to be folded as well.
Folding plans and drawings by hand is a laborious task tying up staff time on non productive work. In a busy design office or reprographics department the Rowe VariFold folder could pay for itself in little under 2 years or less.
The folder is rated at 20m / min which equates to approximately 15 A0 drawings per minute which will save hours of manual folding time. The speed of operation can be adjusted down, this can be done by the engineer when the folder is initially installed. Even at full speed the folder produces high quality fanfolded prints.
