Long Folder – Simplex


The SWI “Simplex” folder has evolved into a class leading simple long folder. The SWI Simplex folder is probably the most popular folder in the southern hemisphere, easily outselling other leading brands. Our machines have a massive list of standard features. The first thing that people comment on, when they use an SWI Simplex Folder, is its ease of use. It’s fast, simple and flexible enough to be used by the most inexperienced, as well as satisfy the most particular, experienced operators.

Our repeat customers are multi-national organisations. They have travelled the world searching for the BEST long folders. In the past, they used Thalmann, Jorns, RAS, Tensol and many others. Now, there is no question as to who they will call when they need a machine. The search is over.

NB: The simplex folder is not available in the USA at the moment.
