Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1022246A2] A method for folding a media in a folding machine includes the steps of moving the media in the folding machine using at least one feeding/folding roller combination; transporting the media into a buckle chute; decelerating the media within the buckle chute using a smart nip roller configuration while continuing to move the media with the feeding/folding roller combination to form a buckle in the media without the use of a backstop in the buckle chute; and pulling the media from the buckle chute and the feeding/folding roller combination to form a folded panel in the media. <IMAGE>
