The CreaseStream Mini series is extremely versatile. Our machines can feed, crease and perforate stocks from 65 to 350gsm, including some plastics: our deep score method creates a strong crease that makes it easy to fold the material.

Minimum sheet format is 80mm width x 120mm length. Maximum sheet format is 520mm width x 520mm length.

All our machines have a small footprint, so they fit anywhere. Dimensions are 830mm length x 750mm width x 200mm height. Weight (standard version) is 24kg.

The Card Creaser and mini Standard can process between 1,000 and 2,000 sheets per hour, the mini Quick-Feed processes up to 3,000 sheets per hour, the mini Auto-Feed processes up to 4,000 sheets per hour and the Pro processes up to 18,000 sheets per hour.

Our machines don’t require maintenance. All you need to do is wipe them down and keep them dust free – especially the 25mm shafts and the feeding belt. This ensures that the tools slide freely and insert easily into the bushings, and that stock feeds smoothly.

Our patented rotary technology features a soft creasing rib that gently stretches stock fibres to produce a U-shaped groove. It’s the only approach that achieves the high quality of the proven letterpress method.

Yes, you can add an optional micro-perforator to your Mini, making it a creasing and perforating machine in the same pass.

CreaseStream spent two years perfecting their micro-perforating application so that they could guarantee excellent quality. In fact, their micro-perforation is almost invisible, and is of such quality that the finished sheet can run through laser printers.

Basically, they apply the perforating blade on top of a special nylon anvil. This way the teeth of the blade kiss-cut the sheet and only slightly penetrate the nylon anvil, giving you a flatter result.

The standard blades are specially manufactured because they’re so fine – 17, 25 and 52 teeth per inch depending on the version of machine you order. It’s easy to add this precision tool to turn any CreaseStream Mini into a perforating machine.

CreaseStream machines are designed to work straight out of the box.

Set-up is easy thanks to our popular video tutorials. The slim, instant-play video card comes loaded with step-by-step instructions and common troubleshooting tips.

You can rewind, fast forward, pause and replay with ease – no computers or DVD players required. If you have any questions, please call us on 02382 357940.
