We have a wide range of creasing and perforating machines available to us. We have listed, the more popular models based on their relibility, flexibility and value for money. If you do not see the perfect machine for your application, call our expert staff to discuss your application in more detail. Because we are experts in print finishing should you wish to see the finished result from a particular creaser or perforator, we are happy to do test runs with your material on any machine and post the results to you.
Creasing machines. When paper or card is manufactured the fibres in the material lay in all directions. When folded by hand the fibres fold in various directions, this breaks the surface creating a messy unprofessional finish, when printing on coloured stock this will also show through the ink. Using a creasing machine prevents these problems from occurring. Creasing machines compress the fibres in the material forming a u shaped channel. The material can now be folded without cracking.
Perforating machine. A perfortion is a process that creates a line of tiny holes in the paper or card. These holes act to create a join point in the paper, strong enough to hold the material together, but weak enough, so that should a deliberate pulling pressure be applied, the material will seperate in a clean straight cut. Typical applications for perforating included, tear off cheques, vouchers etc.
Multi Function creaser / perforators. A machine that does both of the above, these tends to happen by a simple swap from crease to perforation blade or vis versa.
