Stahlfolder TX

Stahlfolder TX folding systems for maximum performance improvement in industrial signature production

The new Stahlfolder TX folding systems from Heidelberg benefit from exclusive folding machine configurations that are optimized for industrial signature applications.


Depending on the fold type used, this can boost performance levels by up to 50 percent compared with conventional production options. What's more, the coordinated operating concept streamlines makeready processes and completely eliminates many of the setup steps normally required on folding machines. The Stahlfolder TX folding systems are available in working widths 82 and 96 centimeters and are individually designed for specific folding applications.

The Stahlfolder TX folding systems are based on tried-and-tested Stahlfolder TH buckle plate folding components and - in conjunction with the new PFX pallet feeder, TX folding unit, and pneumatic twin-lay system modules - create production lines for optimized folding. Components are coordinated at the factory, so that industrial folding with a Stahlfolder TX reaches a whole new level - without increasing the speed of paper travel.

For the first time ever, the Stahlfolder TX folding systems make it possible to process the shingled stream of sheets from the feeder in the folding unit. Based on a maximum overlap of up to 1/3 of the sheet length in the folding unit, this enables a total of up to 50 percent more sheets to be folded in the same time and at the same speed. Moreover, the Stahlfolder TX 96 is especially suitable to also process oblong sheets up to 965 mm - which can increase productivity by up to 30%.

Technical Features

The Stahlfolder TX Folding Systems at a glance:

  • Minimal setup times: The folding systems process a wide range of signature folding types without complicated changeovers
  • Improved performance and higher quality: The innovative parallel folding types improve folding quality and ensure stable production
  • Shingled sheet separation: The PFX pallet feeder can feed sheets both conventionally with sheet gap as well as in overlapping sheet separation mode
