Formax Atlas Air-Feed Document Folder

Formax Atlas Air-Feed Document Folder

The ATLAS Air-Feed Document Folder combines high-volume output with user-friendly features in a rugged, small footprint. With variable speed control, it can process up to 27,000 sheets per hour. Six standard folds are pre-set in letter, legal and ledger paper sizes, making it easy for operators to setup and run jobs. Fully-enclosed fold plates feature dials to select fold plate position and LED displays accurate to 0.1mm. The fold rollers are made of a durable composite material designed to easily grip high-gloss paper, and are housed in a single patented pull-out cassette.

The powerful air suction feed table handles a wide variety of coated or non-coated stock, up to 25.5” in length, and aligns the sheets prior to folding. It also features a suction chamber to control curled or statically charged paper.

Standard features include a modular perforator/scorer which can also be used as a roller bypass, allowing cover stock to be folded and output flat. The belt-driven outfeed stacker is located on the same side as the infeed, allowing operators to easily operate the Atlas from a single position. Double document and jam detection, batch counting, anti-static brushes, skew and micro adjustments complete the user-friendly package.

The Atlas Air-Feed Folder is ideal for those with big folding jobs and limited space.
