TZ Long Folder


The innovative TZ model emerged as a synergy and further development of two preceding models, the THAKO and ZR series.
The TZ unites the best elements of centuries of Swiss engineering skill and is now impressive in its own right through its numerous innovations. 
In particular, the INNOVATIVE VFD (Vertical Force Drive) DESIGN PRINCIPLE is second to none. The machine stands are formed in the shape of “rigid C frames”.
With its vertical tool alignment, the VFD produces a great amount of vertical clamping force for hemming. The integration of the globally unique kinetic CONTROL SHAFT TECHNOLOGY is not only clever from a technical viewpoint, but also offers real added value by distributing the output from all of the machine stands evenly over the clamping and folding beams. Additional free space and flexibility are provided by the newly designed CLAMPING BEAMS and the OFFSET FOLDING BEAM. With the most modern drive technology, the TZ provides measurably improved energy efficiency with considerably higher folding dynamics. Torsion-free profiles are created by a smooth-running, servo-drive-controlled DYNAMIC CROWNING system which impressively compensates for any edge-pressure effects which may occur. The NEW LONGITUDINAL SLITTER concept is detached from the folding beam and thus prevents disruptive influences during the folding process.
