Product Description

The Formax FD 90 Rotary Perforating and Creasing Machine is specially designed for finishing printed sheets, up to 13.8" x 19". Its three-tire friction feeding system reliably feeds up to 6,800 sheets per hour, and can create up to 5 parallel perforations and/or creases in a single pass. Perforating allows for easy separation of multiple printouts, tear-offs, postcards or tickets on a single sheet, while creasing allows for easy folding and reduces unsightly cracking in digital printouts. Operation is easy: simply load printed sheets on the extendable infeed table, adjust the side guides and press the power button. Sheets are fed and perforated and/or creased automatically then stacked neatly on the telescoping outfeed table. The FD 90 can easily accommodate paper weights from 55 - 180gsm. Standard set-up includes two perforating wheels, one creasing wheel and paper guides. Options include additional perforating sets, microperforating sets (17 tpi), creasing sets and guide strips to accommodate 55 - 60gsm paper. The Formax FD 90 Rotary Perforating and Creasing Machine is ideal for small print shops, on-demand and in-plant finishing applications including postcards, invitations, tear-offs, brochures, billing statements and more.

Questions & Answers

Thank you for your question. There is not a setting that would need to be set or adjusted for the thickness of the paper for scoring or perfing. There is just the range of paper weights the machine will work with. The Formax FD 90 Rotary Perforating and Creasing Machine is able to work with paper weights from 55gsm to180gsm. As long as your stock falls within that range it would be able to score or perf it.
