Abstract (en)

[origin: EP2177465A2] The apparatus (1) has a transfer cylinder (26) for transferring printing products produced from a web strand (7), to a collecting cylinder (12) so that the printing products are joined in the collecting cylinder and cross-folded during transfer to a folding flap cylinder (13). Folding hoppers (5, 16, 17) are provided upstream to a transverse cutting device and an auxiliary transverse cutting device (21). A longitudinal cutting device (4) with a cutter is attached to the folding hoppers that are attached to the transverse cutting device. The cutter is aligned with a hopper fold. An independent claim is also included for a method for folding printing products.
