For the 714 station parallel folders to further increase capability, BAUM has developed a new
optional cartridge slitter shaft design that can be installed in place
of the existing fixed center distance slitter shafts. The adjustable
slitter shafts enable better scoring capabilities that could not be
accomplished using the “Fixed” center distance shafts.
The new design includes adjustment points at both ends of the slitter
shaft cartridge assembly using a ball driver tool provided with the
assembly. A simple turn of the adjustment screw will open or close the
center distance between the parallel shafts to enable micro adjustment
for select scoring using scoring tooling designs offered by BAUM on
larger floor model folding machines. The adjustment can also now enable
Microperforating of sheets by adjusting the fine tooth blade depth into
the paper stocks.
The assembly can only be added to
select BAUM 714 series folders with rack and pinion side guide design on
the feed table, found on the 714XLT and 714XA series folders. It cannot
be added to 714 right angle folders or on previous series folders that
do not have the rack and pinion side guides on the feed table.
The maximum sheet width is 14.00 (35.56cm) width. The maximum stock
weight is limited to the acceptable “curl” from running the sheets
through the folding rollers before reaching the adjustable slitter shaft
For heavier weight stocks that can curl due to the back-bending in
the folding rollers, BAUM also has the UltraScore attachment for the
714XLT folders. This enables the sheet to be run straight through using
just the main drive roller and the roller directly above to drive the
sheet in the Ultrascore assembly. The same tooling used on the new 714
adjustable slitter shafts is also used on the Ultrascore attachment.
It is also very important when adding the new BAUM 714 Adjustable
slitter shaft assembly that your folding rollers and deflectors on the
fold plates are in their best condition. Be sure to check these items
and contact us to update your machine to perform at its best.
