    Die Falttrommel taktet weiter und die Leimköpfe werden in ihre Initialstellung gebracht.

    Does this simply mean that the folding drum "continues" ?

    Can you describe the context at all? What's happening?

    My understanding would be more like "keeps pace", but that seems off too.

    The context is an instruction manual for a packaging machine.

    "taktet weiter" comes up a few times when they are describing how different parts of the machine work. One machine part does something, then another part "taktet weiter".

    It continues/rotates in discrete steps.

    My interpretation:
    The folding drum keeps performing (continues to perform) work cycles.
