T-Flex 500 Series

T-Flex500 series – Fold & Stack up to 2000 items/ hr

T-Flexx500Series

The T-FLEX500 series is a small piece folding & stacking solution for large output requirements.

The T-Flex500 allows the options to either

a) Just stacking flat fabrics

b) T-Flex 500-1: One lateral fold & stack (half fold)

c) T-Flex 500-2: Two lateral folds & stack (1/4 fold)

With speeds of up to 2,000 units/ hr, it has been designed to keep up with the highest output requirements in its industry. 

The T-Flex500 can be used  as either a stand-alone unit, or it can be connected to packaging equipment, such as our L-sealer LS-56

 

Application Examples:

  • Napkins,
  • Cleaning Towels,
  • Kitchen Towels,
  • Table Cloth,
  • Rags,
  • other small Flat Textiles.

 

Minimum piece sizes: 

T-Flex 500-1 (one lateral fold): L 12″ x W 12″, folds into a L 6″ x W 12″

T-Flex 500-2 (two lateral folds): L 24″ x W 12″, folds into a L 6″ x W 12″

 

Maximum piece sizes: 

T-Flex 500-1 (one lateral fold): L 29″ x W 19″, folds into a L 14.5″ x W 19″

T-Flex 500-2 (two lateral folds): L 51″ x W 19″, folds into a L 12.75″ x W 19 ”

 

How the process works: 

The pieces are folded by means of a reversing belts in combination with an air-blast. By keeping the pieces confined between the two sets of transport belts, a high quality & consistent fold is achieved.

After the folding section, the pieces are directed towards a high speed roll-off stacking system. As soon as the piece reaches its position on the slide, it stops and the slide is retracted.

The retraction movement is carried out by 2 oversized cylinders and controlled by an intelligent linear encoder. This way, the movement is carefully monitored and controlled, ensuring a long operating lifespan.

Pieces are collected on a lifting stacker. Once its preset stacking height is reached, the pile is put on the final collection belt. A couple of piles can be stored.

As the speed and height of the final belt is adjustable, it is easy to synchronize with any external packing machine. 

The T-Flex500 has a PLC based control system and a color touchscreen. Creating or changing a folding program is very simple, due to operator-friendly layout and simple menu settings.

Return to Feed Conveyor:

The T-Flex500 can be connected to a conveyor conducting back to the operator. This can be single items or stacks. 

In other cases, the T-Flex500 may be connected to a fully automated bagging solution, as well.
