Fold&Fix

The Fold&Fix machine folds flat printed sheets (to produce the leaflet) and adheres them onto pre-printed or unprinted web using discrete lines of hotmelt glue.  The machines can also laminate, die cut and strip the waste, to produce the finished product, the Fix-a-Form leaflet label® all in a single pass.
