A fast and effective solution to the old
cracking problem.
The AutoCreaser, made in the UK by Morgana, provides the complete
solution to the problem of cracking that occurs when folding digitally
printed output. It is equally effective in dealing with conventionally
printed card, laminates or cross-grained stock.
Before Morgana launched the AutoCreaser, printers and finishers faced
with these problems had two choices. The first was to use a platen or
cylinder press. Effective, but very slow to set up and demanding high
skill levels. The second involved the use of rotary scoring, which almost
inevitably damages the material, resulting in white show through on the
spine of the folded document.
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 fibres of the paper
or card in order to create a score. Inevitably this weakens the paper and
encourages cracking.
In contrast, the Morgana AutoCreaser employs a unique creasing rule
and matrix as illustrated overleaf, that eliminates tearing and,
therefore, cracking.
Key Product Features
• Fast & easy to setup
• Fully automatic
• Up to 16 creases per sheet
• Takes stock up to 0.4mm (approx 400 gsm)*
• Rule and matrix guaranteed for life
• 5500 sheets per hour
• Memory for storing repeat jobs
• Adjustable crease depth & square
• Perforating as standard
• Crease without cracking
The AutoCreaser is a fully automatic, suction fed device, which is
infinitely faster to set up than a platen and is supremely easy to use. It
takes a maximum sheet size of 700mm x 330mm and takes stock up to
0.4mm (approx 400 gsm)* including laminated material.
It performs 5500 creases per hour on A4.
The AutoCreaser can also be programmed to make 16 creases in a single
pass with a 1mm minimum distance between creases.
Individual crease adjustments can be made in 0.1mm increments
without affecting other crease positions. For repeat work it will
memorise up to 9 pre-set applications.
The AutoCreaser works by using a creasing rule and matrix action that
applies several tonnes of pressure to weaken the fibres of the paper.
Unlike a scorer, however, this does not tear the surface, so there is no
white show-through even when the fold is made in an area of solid
The AutoCreaser is fully mobile with a small footprint. A single operator
can feed the machine and offload the catch tray or optional jogger.
Morgana use stepping motor technology to accurately position the
substrate before creasing and we use the same technology with the
creasing action. This gives total and consistent accuracy during
operation. With thousands of mechanism’s installed throughout the
world our creasing technology is unparalleled in both performance and
longevity which is why we offer a life long guarantee on the rule and
The AutoCreaser has a Head-up Display for greater ease of use. This is
particularly intuitive as it provides the operator with a series of prompts
which are actioned by a single controller. These include positioning of
the creases, setting the speed of the machine, storing jobs and counting
