Formax FD 180 Booklet Maker Review
Making booklets is fast and easy when you have the right machine. One that you should check out is the Formax FD 180. Here's what you should know about it to decide if it's right for you.
The FD 180 can create booklets containing as many as 60 pages. To get this many pages, you'll need to use 15 sheets of 20 lb. bond paper.
This machine can fold all 15 of your sheets at once and them staple them together, so your booklets will be ready in no time. In fact, this device can produce as many as 500 booklets at once thanks to its time-delay feature and automatic operation.
This device is compatible with different sizes of paper. You can use sheets ranging in size from 8.25" x 10" to 12" x 17". This includes letter-sized paper. (In other words, the typical paper you use in a printer or photocopier.)
The FD 180 has 6 paper sizes already programmed into the machine. There's space for 6 more sizes that you can program yourself. Meanwhile, the device has 2 staple heads and they can be placed in 5 different positions depending on what your documents need.
If you've never used a booklet maker before, you'll find using this device to be pretty easy. It has an LCD display so you can keep track of what's going on as well as clearly marked controls.
One of the best things about the FD 180 is that it's not very large. It only measures 22" (length) x 17.25" (width) x 6.5" (height) so it will be able to fit on a desktop without any problems. It will complement your other office devices too, since it looks like a scanner. This machine weighs 65 pounds so moving it won't be too hard either.
This machine is durably constructed and contains steel parts. You should be able to get a lot of use out of it even if you use it frequently.
The FD 180 comes with a one-year warranty so you'll be covered in case anything happens.
The Formax FD 180 is a good booklet maker that would be a good choice for just about any business or organization that needs such a device. This machine can produce books that contain a lot of pages (60 pages is very good for a booklet) and it does so quickly and automatically. (However, this device isn't a good choice if your documents need to be longer. If that's the case you may want to get a binding machine instead.) It's great that this device can handle different sizes of paper because you'll be able to use the materials that are right for your particular documents. You'll also find that this machine is easy to use and it's also durable. Plus, it's small enough to fit on a desk or table. Overall, the FD 180 is a great device for your booklet-making needs.
