On many occasions the industry is faced with exceptional paper weights and sheet sizes, which make collating on conventional equipment troublesome, or sometimes impossible.

Over the years' Col-Tec have been called upon to build equipment for special applications.  This presents challenges at the time of design but in many cases results in improvements to the standard range of collators.  Some of the applications for which special machines have been made are given below.

In order to support automatic production lines, Col-Tec will produce the necessary interfaces to conveyors, binding equipment, film-wrapping machines, etc all to individual specification.
