Why are Electric Card Creasing Machines Important?
Card Creasing Machines have become an important part of the Print and Craft industries since Digital Print revolution. Digital print engines create the images using a mixture of toners and oils which are applied to the media by a selection of rollers and heat. As a result the images are often very clear and precise but the material is dry and brittle meaning that if the document is then folded it causes toner cracking along the folded spine, this is both unsightly and completely ruins the image.
Unlike traditional water based inks such as those found in Lithographic print applications where simple scoring wheels can be used to iron out any damage to a folded spine a digital print requires a bit more care and caressing in order to reach the required finish. This is where Card Creasing machines step in with an important process. Creasing the cards, a crease actually forms and shapes the media similar to the shape of a human lip, stretches the paper fibre and the toner into a channel, scoring merely crushes a line in to the card. As the card fibres are now stretched in the channel when the media is folded the fibre does not crack and you get a completely smooth wrap around image.
Perfect for Greeting Cards, Folded Business Cards and high end digital Book Covers.
Which Electric Creasing Machines are Best?
Our large range of card creasing machines are designed to offer solutions across a wide array of requirements and volumes meaning that no one machine is best for any given application. To purchase the correct card creasing machines for your requirements you need to consider a few questions: How often am I going to be using the card creasing machines, What quantities am I creasing? What sizes of sheets do I need to crease? What timescales am I working towards to get the job completed? These few questions will give you the answer to which card creasing machines is best for you, not best over all but specifically for your application.
For instance, the CreaseStream Mini Auto offers everything that the CreaseStream Pro offers but the two card creasing machines are designed for very different environments. The smaller Mini Auto is perfect for low to mid volumes of creasing and fits neatly on to a desktop, whereas the CreaseStream Pro is a high speed, high production machine designed to partner an existing high capacity folding machine. You can say the same about the Duplo DC446 and the Touchline CP375, the Duplo offers high speed creasing and perforating just like the CP375, however, the CP375 is much quicker and offers complex perforation and two directional creasing. Again the latter option is more suited to a higher volume environment where specialist jobs are in production.
