Welcome to MyBinding video. Let’s have a look at the Martin Yale 1711 Autofolder, a high performance paper folding machine. If your business has a high demand for easy to use paper folding, this Martin Yale 1711 could be a great bet. Let’s go step-by-step in using the machine.
Paper goes into the feed tray on the top. The red button selects your size of paper you’ll be using. And the blue go button will send papers through as long as you hold it down. The green button is continuous feed until you push it again. Choose between different folding patterns with the blue selection button on the bottom. Wait just a moment and the machine will make automatic adjustments for the new fold. Use the left and right arrow buttons for enhanced precision paper skew adjustment or for making custom folds. Already built into the machine are six common preset fold types. And complete your project with a folding speed of up to 9,000 sheets per hour. Use the bypass slot for up to five sheets of stapled paper to be folded all together at once. That’s it. It’s as fast and easy as that with the Martin Yale 1711.

Welcome to MyBinding video. This is a review of the Martin Yale 1711 Autofolder, a high-performance paper folding machine. Martin Yale has delivered another high quality office product in the 1711 Autofolder. Designed for the medium sized organization with frequent folding needs, the 1711 delivers with ease, precision, and speed. Let's watch it in action and review its features.
First off, the speed is fantastic at 9,000 sheets an hour. You only wish the feed table capacity was larger because it's only 150 sheets. In terms of ease of use, everything is right there in front of you with one control panel. One button selects the paper size between legal, letter, and A4, and one button selects between six preset common fold types. In mere moments, the table will adjust automatically to the fold selected. Minor adjustments, skewed paper adjustments, or custom folds can all be done with the left and right arrows. And again, the machine will reset and move on its own. The blue go button feeds the papers through until released. The green button is continuous feed until pressed again. An extra excellent feature is the bypass slot where you can put five sheets of paper, stapled or not, together to be folded at once. We really liked and enjoyed using the Martin Yale 1711. The only two major drawbacks are that it cannot handle glossy or anything larger than legal size paper. But there is no assembly; just plug it in the wall and go. At right around $1,900, this certainly is an investment. But if this is what you need, it is a great machine. For more demos and reviews of this product and many more, check out MyBinding.com.
Martin Yale 1711 Autofolder Paper Folding Machine Review
Martin Yale is known for delivering high quality office products and the 1711 Paper Folder is no exception. Designed to handle frequent medium to larger folding jobs, the 1711 is perfect for large mail rooms, churches, schools, and offices. Easy operation at high speeds provides an efficient folder that will save you money. Let's take a closer look at the pros and cons of this machine.
This machine is easy to use right out of the box. No setup is necessary, other than plugging it in. The paper tray automatically feeds and folds a stack of documents as large as legal size paper. Once the feed tray is empty, an auto shut-off sensor cuts power to the motor. Preset options for legal, letter, and A4 size paper make switching a breeze. The retarder self-adjusts for various paper thicknesses and a precision paper skew adjustment mechanism helps to ensure all your documents come out precisely folded, not crooked. In the rare case of a paper jam, the automatic jam detector alerts the user right away. Neatly creased items emerge from the folder via conveyor belt exit.
Six standard folds are created by this machine: "C" fold, single fold, "Z" fold, double parallel, baronial, and French or right angle fold. Seventeen preset fold and paper size combinations are pre-programmed into this device with additional options for custom folds.
The hopper can hold up to 150 sheets at once. But with speeds up to 9000 sheets per hour, the tray will need to be refilled quickly. An additional manual bypass offers the insertion of up to five loose or stapled sheets for combined folding.
This folder can handle items as small as 3-1/2" x 5" and as large as 8-3/4" x 14". Weights accepted range from 16lb bond to 70lb index.
Martin Yale offers a one year warranty on this product. Be aware it doesn't include consumable parts, labor, or shipping.
As with many folders, this one is not rated to handle glossy paper. Many offices don't use coated materials for large folding jobs and won't be affected by this downside. However, if your business prefers glossy or coated paper for mass mailings, we suggest you look into an air-feed machine, such as the 959AF. That model, though much more expensive, is rated to handle specialty paper types.
This machine only folds as large as legal size paper. Often this is all the larger offices need to fold and this wouldn't cause a problem for them. But if your company needs to be able to fold bigger sheets, an upgrade to the next model up, the 1217A, will satisfy this.
Overall, the Martin Yale 1711 is well-able to accommodate the folding needs of any medium to large office. The plethora of automatic features ensure simple, uncomplicated operation. Electronically adjusted fold plates add to the high convenience of this device. We think this paper folder is an excellent addition to any office.
