LONGFORD was the first company to automatically package greeting cards and envelopes in 1970, and we've continually improved that equipment ever since. Our B855 high-speed batch counter supplies the sets of cards and envelopes while the C700 card feeder places locator cards into the in-feed of wrapping lines, or into boxes. LONGFORD's experience is unsurpassed in the area of interfacing our collating systems to any horizontal wrapper or cartoner.
Longford revolutionized the folding operation by the cut/score system instead of buckle folding. This unique concept allows for speeds of up to 90,000 cards per hour on the CF200 machine.
