Edgefolding and Edgewrapping

Edgefinishing technology is a critical process applied to many products in the transportation industry and consumer goods market. Koops customizable edgewrap and edgefold machines create a clean, crisp look that is visually appealing to consumers. Product-specific tooling configurations allow machines to run multiple part versions and enables higher utilization of capital equipment. Edgefold machines perform a localized thermoforming process where the substrate and coverstock are heated and formed in specific areas
