Amscomatic's K-950™ is a sophisticated high-speed automatic folding system designed to precisely fold a wide variety of garments and other textile items. It’s engineered for dependable performance and low maintenance in demanding, high-production environments, and can be easily integrated with other Amscomatic equipment to create a highly-productive folding/labeling/bagging/sealing system. A significant technological breakthrough—M&R’s patented bottom pulling dual-belt (upper and lower) transport system—carries garments on a moving belt instead of the stationary plate used on competing systems. The K-950’s dual-belt makes it easy to fold garments printed with high density or gel inks.

Folding plates electronically adjust to the desired width while staying parallel to each other. This allows tighter, more consistent folding on all types of products. Wide transfer belts in the second-fold area minimize maintenance and improve performance. The entire garment transport system uses a timing belt drive, which runs quieter and requires less long-term maintenance than chain & sprocket drives.
Plexiglas top covers provide a clear view of the folding process while offering easy access to components from both sides of the machine. Quick-release side-panel covers allow easy access to the inner workings of the machine. All covers are interlocked, ensuring that the machine will not operate when a cover has been loosened or removed. K-950’s touch-screen control panel is mounted on a convenient swiveling arm, which allows tailoring of the machine’s control configuration to better suit operator preferences. This touch-screen interface controls all machine operating parameters, while Job Recall™ provides storage and retrieval of up to 99 fold settings for quick changeover. The K-950’s optional LoadRate™ feature enables operators to set folding speed in loads per minute. A tower light displays green as long as the load rate is met, but turns red and issues an audible alarm if the operator’s load rate falls below the set amount. Capable of cycle speeds in excess of 1500 garments per hour, Amscomatic’s automatic folding machines are the most efficient and productive in the world.
