The reliable gathering machine

The Sprinter gathering machines are designed based on the modular concept. All elements can be combined individually and used both as stand-alone machines or inline with a perfect binder. The machine's low height, clearly laid out arrangement and functional design represent a visible expression of modern mechanical engineering, always with an eye on technical safety and reliability aspects.

The Winjector is a new, compact and patented suction pump system for optimized vacuum generation. Based on the multi-stage ejector technology (Coax®-Technology) vacuum is locally generated from compressed air. Its compact design allows the use in the various stations of the gathering machine Sprinter i.e. each station has two decoupled Winjectors creating a vacuum where it is needed.

This new technology also offers the advantage that the vacuum can be controlled individually in its strength and the sheet is separated by a blow-off specifically from the sucker. This increases process reliability and productivity. The elimination of conventional vacuum pumps results in and up to 80% less noise.

Features as standard

  • Universal double gripper system for separating of sections and single sheets without any adjustments
  • Separate, shaftless servo drive for use as stand-alone or inline operation
  • Upright, smooth product transfer in the transport channel supported by blowing air
  • Reliable and non-marking separating of sections thanks to the 25° incline of the stations
  • No spiral race element required for infeed into a perfect binder
  • Integrated, patented vacuum technique Winjector
  • Integrated terminal with graphic display and touch-screen function
  • Motorized adjustment of the transport channel
  • Control system for automatic run-up and run-down as standard
  • Pulsing blowing air in front in the magazine ensure reliable processing of single sheets down to 70 g/m²
