Knife folding unit Z 2/5

The mobile knife folding units Z 2 and Z 5 with MC Control can be pivoted by 180 °, thus allowing folding both from the top and from the bottom. They can be used for various application purposes. Z 5 has a lateral fine adjustment for the entire knife unit. The height is adjusted with a handwheel. The larger infeed width and length of the Z 5 allow to handle larger formats.
