Formax FD312 Office Desktop Paper Folder Review
Formax is an industry leader of office equipment. Their FD312 Office Desktop Paper Folder is another example of quality craftsmanship. For low volume folding projects that need to be done swiftly, this machine does the trick. It offers small design and fast speeds to provide you with an efficient folder to fit in even tiny offices. The increased productivity this device provides will save you both time and money, eventually paying for itself. Let's take a closer look at the strengths and weaknesses of the FD312.
This folder is very easy to operate. Right out of the box, it has a quick setup and offers easy push-button control. The drop in feed system allows you to insert up to 200 sheets of 20lb paper and let the machine do the work for you.
Pre-marked settings offer easy plate adjustment to deliver three popular folds: the standard letter trifold or "C" fold, an accordion or "Z" fold, and a half fold. Clearly marked settings make it easy to switch between styles. Custom folds can also be accomplished, such as the gate fold and a double parallel fold. With this variety in styles, you can create bulletins, flyers, newsletter, invoices, and menus, as well as many other items.
Letter, legal, and A4 size documents are all swiftly folded by this machine at weights up to 20lb bond. After setting items in the tray for processing, the device folds them at a rapid rate of up to 150 sheets per minute. They are automatically fed, folded, and stacked for you.
Fanning is not required when feeding this machine. Simply square off your stack and set it in the hopper. For even more convenience, Formax designed the 402 series of joggers that are compatible with this device. A jogger will automatically square off and align your paper as well as reduce static electricity.
A 90 factory direct warranty is included on this product. The warranty begins at the time of shipment.
Since this is a very basic folder, it doesn't allow for much variation in paper weight or size. If you only need to fold legal or letter size paper in the standard 20lb bond weight, this machine will work great for you. However, many businesses will prefer the FD320, which folds a wider range of paper sizes.
This machine doesn't fold glossy or coated paper. Many businesses don't utilize these mediums and as such won't be affected by this. However, if your office deals with a large amount of specialty materials, you will want to invest in an air-feed machine that can handle these specific items.
As you can see, the FD312 is a great basic folder. Easy setup and operation means you won't waste time trying to figure out how to use it. A variety of fold styles allows for the production of multiple documents, whatever your needs may be. When combined with a jogger, you can be sure your papers will come out with precision folds every time. The Formax FD312 is an excellent choice for your next low volume paper folder.
