Morgana DigiFold Pro 385 Creaser - Folder
Summary
The DigiFold Pro 385 is the latest, fourth generation of the DigiFold series, offering further levels of
automation to meet today’s demanding applications. It is specifically designed for digital and litho printers
who have a need to crease and fold digitally-printed, heavy-weight or cross-grained stock.
The DigiFold Pro 385 is equipped with the very latest in technology to enable automatic set up of jobs,
including setting of all feeder functions and fold roller settings, by selecting just a few simple parameters on
the Morgana SmartScreen touch screen control. The new deep pile feeder allows stacking of up to 17.72” of
paper to enable longer runs and is equipped with a SmartStep table drop for fast loading of shorter run jobs.
Paper feeding is controlled by a new vacuum top feeding drum that can automatically change between a
wide range of paper types and thickness with little operator intervention.
The DigiFold Pro 385 is equipped with a Dynacrease blade and matrix, to allow the highest speed when
creasing and folding, and with a fixed blade and matrix for crease-only mode. This allows operators to select
the widest range of applications to be produced from the SmartScreen with all other functions being set
automatically.
The unique DynaCrease system places creases into the stock whilst running to an accuracy of +/- 0.004”. This
system allows the production of up to 6000 sheets per hour.
The DigiFold Pro 385 is controlled entirely by the latest version of the Morgana SmartScreen touchscreen
control. Sheet size and thickness are entered, along with finish fold type. All other functions are then set
automatically by the machine, including the air separation, side guide position, fold roller, and table height.
For non-standard sheet sizes or fold types, an alpha-numeric memory allows an unlimited number of jobs to
be stored and named as you choose, making job recall much easier using your own job name and numbers.
The DigiFold Pro 385 uses our patented flying knife technology which was developed to prevent the scuffing
and marking on digital stocks that are caused by folding using conventional methods. This dispenses entirely
with buckle plates and conventional knives, using instead an electronically controlled contoured flying knife
around extra-large diameter rollers and moving at the same speed as the material passing through the
machine.
The folding section uses a dynamic sheet deflector at the leading edge of the sheet to allow single or
multiple folds to be performed without risk of scratching or marking.
The DigiFold Pro 385 can be used as an integrated creaser/folder performing both functions in a single pass,
as a stand-alone creaser when folding is not required, or as a perforator when creasing and folding are not
required. Up to five perforation wheels can be fitted across the width of the sheet.

The DigiFold Pro 385 is simplicity itself…the quickest of set up times with virtually no waste, allowing the
user to improve their productivity and quality immediately.
Creasing versus Scoring
Traditional rotary scoring machines use circular blades that are in constant motion as the stock passes
through them. This creates a ploughing action that actually cuts through the top fibers of the paper or card
in order to create a score. Inevitably this weakens the paper and encourages cracking. In contrast, the
Morgana DigiFold Pro employs a unique creasing rule and matrix, the DynaCrease, that eliminates tearing
and therefore, cracking. By using this patented technology, the DynaCrease, we have managed to increase
the speed to over 6,000 8.5" x 11" sheets an hour.
Speed increases when running smaller stocks and is achieved by creasing the sheet without stopping it, yet
maintaining an accuracy of +/- 0.003". This speed is maintained irrespective of the number creases being
applied to the sheet. 9 sheets each with 9 creases can now be produced in less than 9 seconds!
Flying Knife Technology
The DigiFold Pro uses our patented flying knife technology which was developed to prevent the scuffing and
marking on digital stocks that are caused by folding using conventional methods. This dispenses entirely
with buckle plates and conventional knives, using instead an electronically-controlled contoured flying knife
around extra-large diameter rollers and moving at the same speed as the material passing through the
machine. Rather than the solid deflector used in most folders, the DigiFold Pro uses another patented device
in the form of a dynamic sheet deflector that only comes in contact with the leading edge of the sheet. This
allows single or multiple folds to be performed without risk of scratching or marking.
This technology allows delicate digital stocks, cross-grained materials and heavy-weight stocks to be folded
without any of the scratching and marking caused with conventional folders. Users will benefit from the
simplicity of the system which will give unparalleled performance and longevity.
