Formax FD 38X - Automatic Tabletop Document Folder

The Fully Automatic FD 38X Document Folder is the ideal folding solution for any business, church, school or print-for-pay center that demands quick and easy set-up. Jobs are completed exceptionally fast with the FD 38X folding up to 20,100 pieces per hour! The new 2.8? (71mm) backlit LCD display and control panel makes the FD 38X extremely easy to use and provides a user interface that is second to none. Fully automated fold plates and AutoStack™ Stacker Wheels provide one touch set-up of the 18 pre-programmed fold settings or for choosing one of the 35 custom folds that can be stored into memory.

The patented Multi-Sheet Feeder allows up to 4 sheets stapled or unstapled to be folded at one time through the dedicated feed system with its own side guides and skew adjustment system.

Operators can load up to 500 sheets in the hopper, select their fold, press start and walk away to attend to other important tasks. The FD 38X will fold the 500 sheets in as fast as 2 minutes and hold the folded pieces on its patented Telescoping Conveyor System.

The large 2.8? (71mm) backlit LCD display and user friendly control panel allows for untrained operators to walk up and start folding with little to no instruction. The FD 38X advanced software allows for all standard fold types and paper sizes to be customized to meet your particular needs.

When it comes to paper folding, no one does it faster or with higher quality than the Formax FD 38X!
