…interest in our DE8 Dynafold machine. This machine offers special features such as scoring and perf and even a special badge in base counter. You can purchase those additionally to your basic unit. The unit that I’m about to show you is going to include all of these special features. On our machines, particularly this unit, your DE8, we have a paper thickness adjustment. It will allow your paper to move into your tray, you want in to roll in all the way. We have a knob here on the side of your machine which allows you to adjust for the paper thickness. To make sure you’re doing this right, you watch this wheel. The minute it moves, you know your paper thickness is set correctly. You can place almost a full rim of paper into your paper tray. I’m not going to start with quite that many but I want you to know it will handle a full rim. You have two paper guides on each side which you can set so that your paper goes in smoothly as well as these rollers which are easily adjustable in and out. We want them to be placed on your paper so it grabs your paper evenly. In every bearing roller that you see here in the top and also in the bottom, each one of these has small ball bearing which gives it the perfect amount of weight to grab your paper evenly and pull it into your DE8. This top mechanism here makes it quite unique because you can adjust here and that’s important because when you use thick paper up to 110 hum bond paper or you can even use a glossy paper, you simply adjust on the top here as well as your paper thickness which we already discussed. Your optional feature is a base and batch counter. It’s easily installed by inserting your wire into here, that’s as easy as it is. It has an automatic setting or manual setting. It does batch counting; it has a second or maximum of 5 seconds in between each batch. Once your counter is setup, then you want to set your 2 plates. You have one in the front and one in the back. They both work in basically the same way. You simply push up or lift down and that’s how you’re adjusting. You have two screws, similar two screws on each plate, one here and one here. On the other plate you have them on the same position. this is going to make sure that your paper goes in straight and not crooked. These are used for skewing.

Let me show you 8 ½ x 11 folding in our DE8 and it has perf and scoring attached with it so it will come out with perf and scoring as well. You’ve just seen how your counter is demonstrated as a batch counter. We did a set of ten, paused a few seconds and did another set of ten. As well as perfing and scoring on your machine and folding, you can also use your machine to only perf or only score and fold later. After seeing your DE8 perf and score without folding, another unique feature is to see it fold or refold a folded sheet already. It’s that simple. You place your folded sheets here; you do it as a right angle fold. You adjust your top feed mechanism and you also want to adjust your paper thickness and it will come out as a refolded sheet. Your DE8 machine will fold up to 21” long and 14” wide. It also really does well with thick and glossy paper as we’ve mentioned before. Let me show you another feature your DE8 machine can do. You can stack your paper here, turn your front and your back plate around and it will do perfing and scoring only and no folding. Let me show you how easily this is done. Now your machine is ready for perf and score only. The perf and score wheels we can move, right now they’re set this way but you can move one out, one in, you can move them both in any position you want. You can even add more scores or perf wheels if necessary. In setting your DE8 machine to perf and score only, you want to adjust your feeding tray so that the paper will catch it down here and not up here. We neatly scored and perf. One side is perf and one side is neatly scored.

Now let me show you how we can put the same scored and perf sheets through a different way without folding. You want to loosen up your paper tray to accommodate this different size of paper. Try to center in the middle piece of your paper. This helps to give it the nicest crease in your scoring. Okay, now we’re ready. Now we’ve perf and scored again. We’ve scored first this way, now we’ve scored this way. You can even use this if you have a coupon that you choose to use. There is my coupon. This is a nice feature of your DE8. You can fold after you’ve perf and scored in any position that you set your perf and scoring wheel. I’ve just showed you how to use your perf and score to make a coupon if you wish or a tear-off.

Now let me tell you your DE8 optimum performance is with a 120-pound index paper. It really likes that paper for perfing and scoring features. For most printers, this is truly the bread and butter of your machine, not just folding but scoring and perfing as well. Please let your Dynafold dealer know when you’d like to place your order.

Dynafold DE8 Professional Paper Folding Machine Review

The Dynafold DE8 Pro is a fast, professional grade paper folder that combines speed and convenience. With several features for precise set up as well as rapid folding rates, companies will enjoy increased productivity from the addition of this device to their office. Here is a closer look.

Strengths:

  • Setup up of this machine is manual with a guide to help with accuracy. You can set it for either standard or non-standard paper sizes and folds. A high precision needle bearing ensures consistent exact folds. Differing paper thickness needs to be adjusted for as well as varying amounts of paper in the feed. A wide feed roller helps with accurate paper entry so items exit precisely folded. If a paper jam begins to occur, the machine will automatically shut-off to prevent it from getting worse. Neatly stacked finished sheets exit the machine on a conveyor belt.
  • Folds offered include a traditional trifold letter or “C” fold, “Z” or accordion fold, single fold, double parallel fold, fold-out, gate fold, and cross fold (this one will require re-insertion). Adjustable folding speed helps to provide precise folds every time. A manual micro adjuster can be altered for tiny modifications to the fold placement. Customizable folds are created by plate manipulation. From the various fold styles, you can make countless items, including invoices, flyers, bulletins, newsletters, menus, and correspondence.
  • The motor is rated to fold as many as 22,000 pieces per hour. But the recommended duty cycle is 240,000 pieces per month. If you regularly exceed this recommendation, your machine will wear out quickly.
  • Paper accepted can range from 10lb to 110lb bond. Up to 300 pages of fanned paper can sit in the tray at once. Items as small as 2″ x 2-3/4″ can be folded as well as documents as large as 14″ x 21″.
  • Three optional features are available for added convenience. A 4-digit digital counter keeps track of your documents. It also offers batch folding, eliminating the need to count out the exact number of pages you want folded. The other two are a scoring attachment and a perforator, both helpful in various applications.
  • Dynafold offers a 90-day warranty on this device.

Weaknesses

  • Unfortunately, this machine isn’t rated to fold glossy or coated paper. Offices that don’t utilize these mediums won’t be affected by this. If your business often needs to fold large amounts of specialty material such as these, we suggest you invest in an air feed machine specifically capable of handling glossy paper.
  • The manual setup of this device can be a pain. It is often difficult and time consuming to get precise folds, even with a guide. Businesses that rarely change folds will most likely be fine with the occasional plate change. But if your company regularly utilizes multiple fold styles, we suggest you save yourself the hassle and get an automatically adjustable folder.

As you can see from the many strengths, this folder is a great option for any office. It’s too bad you have to set it all up yourself, but once in place, you can quickly fold thousands of papers within minutes. With all that time and money saved, this device will eventually pay for itself. Optional features offer even more convenience. We think the Dynafold DE8 is an excellent addition to any office.
