The BAUM 20 VFM is a unique design that includes finishing modules that can be placed in-line with other equipment or offline with other VFM modules in order to provide complete finishing solutions.
The BAUM 20 VFM design incorporates the already well proven robustness and superior features of the popular BAUM 20 Pile feed 1st, 2nd and 3rd station folders.
The VFM 20 can handle light to heavy weight stocks. One big advantage of the VFM 20 series is the ability to score, slit and perforate heavier stocks without creating any curl in the sheet that is found when trying to run heavy stocks through a buckle folder to perform the same tasks.
On the BAUM 20 VFM, the stocks stay straight and flat as they travel through the slitter shafts versus the back-bending of a buckle folding machine as the heavier sheets try to conform to the radius of the folding rollers.
Each BAUM 20 VFM unit has three sets of removable cartridge slitter shaft assembles that use the same tooling as the BAUM 20 folders.
The three slitter shaft design provides superior sheet control and alignment for multiple applications. This allows you to do multiple lines of scoring and perforating in a single pass. The three shaft design allows you to place your perforations and/or scores much closer together than on a single shaft design.
The BAUM VFM 20 series provides you with up to three versatile finishing modules that adapt to other BAUM products and to other manufacturers products to provide complete finishing solutions.
Since the 20VFM utilizes rotary scoring and perforating verses strike scoring and or perforating is much faster and more versatile. This with reduce your scoring and perforating costs considerably.
Some of the applications that can be done on the VFM 20 include:
- Single or Multiple Lines of Scoring
- Single or Multiple Lines of Perforating
- Timed Perforating
- Edge Trimming
- Center Slitting
- Gutter Slitting
- Timed Slitting
- And More!
The BAUM 20VFM-1P 1st station module with pile feeder register, and scoring unit can be used with a BAUM CF20 Folder allowing you to do scoring, slitting, perforating and folding heavy weight stock all in one pass. The CF20 can handle heavier weight stocks due to its large diameter fold rolls and gear plate drive for the fold rolls.
