Standard PF-P330 Desktop Air Feed Automatic Setup Paper Folder Review
For the widest variety of paper weights that can be folded, many offices turn to air feed machines, which are especially handy for processing glossy and coated stocks. The downside is that these machines are usually extremely large and take up a lot of space. But thanks to Standard's revolutionary design, the PF-P330 is able to offer the same features seen on larger machines in a compact desktop model. Here is a closer look at this innovative machine.
The innovative feed system uses a patented rotary vacuum system that eradicates the need for adjusting for various paper stocks. The space-saving pump only takes up an 8x8 footprint and easily sits on a desk or table top next to the folder. It offers quiet operation when compared to traditional air feed machines, only producing about the same amount of noise as a mid-volume copier. Manual volume control allows the user to increase or decrease the amount of suction as needed.
Simple push-button controls offer easy operation. Status indicators and current settings are shown on the LCD screen. A handy counter provides batch folding as well as recording the total number folded since the last reset. Other controls offer variable speed adjustment, intermittent delay feeding, manual fold plate adjustment, jam detection, test folding, and an automatic stack roller position indicator.
The machine is preset for six folds: letter, accordion, half, double parallel, engineering, and gate folds. Custom settings are also available and can be stored in the machine's memory. Both automatic and manual micro settings provide exact control over fold stops and paper stock variations.
Four standard paper sizes are pre-programmed into the machine. However, the fold plates can handle sheets as small as 5" by 5.2" up to 12" by 17" in size. Paper stocks accepted range from 14lb bond to 60lb cover, including glossy and coated stocks. Sheets are folded as fast as 240 per minute, assuming letter size in a half fold.
The unique design boasts of mark-free output. An electronic conveyor exit leaves processed documents in neatly folded stacks for easy unloading.
Standard backs this product with a one year warranty.
There isn't a bypass to allow multiple sheets to fold together. While this may not be a problem for some offices, many companies like the convenience of being able to automatically fold multi-sheet newsletters, bulletins and flyers. Unfortunately, this isn't a typical feature on air feed machines. For a device with this specific ability, we recommend the Formax FD38x.
At 176 pounds, this is a very heavy tabletop machine. If you think you'll need to move it regularly, we suggest you store it on a cart for easy rolling from one location to another.
Overall, the Standard PF-P330 is an ideal compact air feed system. It would be especially beneficial to print and copy shops, shipping centers, universities, and other businesses needing professional folding in a limited space. With simple and dependable operation combined with innovative design, this machine is both convenient and efficient. We think the PF-P330 is an excellent choice for any office needing a professional air feed paper folder.
