Large Format Paper Folder Rowe VarioFold
THE NEW ROWE VarioFold Compact folding machine.
Patented: offline becomes online.
More than half of all users of offline folding systems want to be able to fold online in the medium term. Up to now this has meant expensive re-construction of the folding system. With VarioFold Compact you can spare yourself this, thanks to its modular construction. This is the first folding machine worldwide that can be extended from offline to online with minimum outlay, even after it has already been put into operation. This guarantees you maximum security for your investment.
ROWE even goes a step further: whether it is the height adjustment that’s easy on your back, the whisper quiet folding, the patented endless folding or the user-specific folding programs – the VarioFold Compact can be extended at any time. This means it’s the first folding machine worldwide that grows with its user.
OFFLINE SAVES SPACE LIKE NO OTHER.
The VarioFold Compact is the user-friendly folding system that operates efficiently and is operated intuitively. The folding quality is the benchmark.
Perfect for all different heights
VarioFold Compact in the offline configuration is the compact system for professional folding. It is ideal for all folding volumes. Space requirement is, thanks to the Front Delivery Tray, minimal. Extremely ergonomic: the height adjustment means the VarioFold Compact adjusts exactly to your height – standard with all Floorstands.
Compact space saver
If you’ve had to do without a folding system in the past due to space restrictions ROWE now offers the best solution: the VarioFold Compact with Tablestand – an extremely space saving stand. Simply put the VarioFold Compact on a table e.g. the one previously used for manual folding. Thanks to its being extremely compact, this system is ideally suited to users who want automatic folding in a limited space.
UPERIOR FOLDING PRECISION AND MAXIMUM SECURITY FOR YOUR INVESTMENT.
ROWE is the benchmark for quality thanks to 60 years of experience and specialization in wide format.
Maximum folding quality – precise with sharp edges – is guaranteed by the sophisticated interaction of micro-controllers and step motor drivers of the latest generation, patented holding rollers and the torsion resistant aluminum spaceframe construction.
ROWE: a once in a lifetime acquisition
ROWE stands for durability. The new VarioFold Compact carries on this tradition. High-tech materials like the aluminum spaceframe and the manufacture 100 % ‘Made in Germany’ make the VarioFold Compact a once-in-a-lifetime acquisition. Simply futureproof – typically ROWE.
60 years of experience
Perfection requires specialization – that’s the ROWE creed. ROWE has focused on wide format for more than 60 years. As user of our products you are profiting from 60 years of daily research and continuous development of our technologies. We can offer you mature solutions which can be smoothly integrated into your infrastructure thus creating a perfect workflow.
During the design of the VarioFold Compact ROWE kept strictly to the principles of modular construction. This ensures the new folding system is a very safe investment: when demand increases simply extend the VarioFold Compact by an additional module – up to and including an online folding system.
