Product Description

Formax FD-390 high speed air feed paper document folder features five different standard fold types: half fold, letter, double parallel, z-fold, and engineering. Custom folds like cross fold and baronial are also possible. A chart for these folds are located on the out-feed stacker for easy setup. Memory can hold up to 20 custom folds. Ideal for mail rooms, print shops, mail houses, or virtually any other high volume environment.

The FD-390 paper folding machine uses a bottom in-feed air system to allow for continuous loading of forms while the extended out-feed stacker cuts down on the unloading of folded documents. Both features decrease processing time and increase efficiency. Micro-adjustment knobs are used to fine-tune the stopper position for crisp and accurate folds. Includes a clearly marked control panel conveniently located on the same side as the in-feed and out-feed, saving space and decreasing operator fatigue.

Flexible - The rigid steel fold plate construction gives the FD-390 the strength to absorb the impact of up to 47 lb. bond or 65 lb. cover stock and gives a crisp accurate fold every time. Virtually any coated or uncoated job can be processed ranging in paper size from 3" x 5" up to 14" x 20".

Dependable - Maintenance-free sealed ball bearings eliminate the need to lubricate bearings and provide a long lasting equipment life. Automatic roller tensioning compensates for different paper thicknesses increasing fold roller life and decreasing setup time.

Accurate - An adjustable side guide design compensates for unsquare paper. With this system, side guides are easily adjusted for the paper skew and returned to square. The unique air-blast control increases or decreases airflow to the in-feed table offering better separation of forms and increasing the accuracy of feeding curled forms and/or forms with static electricity.

Easy to Operate - A clearly marked and conveniently located control panel makes for ease of operation. The in-feed and out-feed are located on the same side of the folder decreasing operator fatigue. A fold chart with seven common fold settings is located on the out-feed stacker making setup quick and easy.

Pair with an optional right angle folder to handle in-line right angle and cross folding without needing to intervene or stop the machine. Make the feeding process easier with the use of a paper jogger; multiple joggers available in the "Recommended Accessories" section on the right side-bar.
