Formax FD 2056 Pressure Sealer

The AutoSeal® FD 2056 is a fully automatic pressure sealer which provides the ultimate high-volume tabletop solution for processing pressure sensitive one-piece mailers. Designed with ease of operation and efficiency in mind, the FD 2056 features a full-color touchscreen control panel, and automatically detects and adjusts for 11”, 14” and 17” forms. It offers 5 pre-programmed standard folds for even panel C, V, Z and uneven/eccentric C and Z folds. It also has the ability to store up to 35 custom fold settings with the simple touch of a button.

The FD 2056 utilizes a drop-in three-roller feed system which produces dependable feeding of forms with no paper fanning required. Forms are processed at speeds up to 16,450 per hour, and are output to an integrated telescoping conveyor with automated nip roller positioning, capable of holding up to 500 processed forms. The color touchscreen control panel makes it simple for untrained operators to walk up and start processing pressure seal forms with little to no instruction.

The FD 2056 advanced software allows for all standard fold types and paper sizes to be customized to meet your particular needs. Options include a fully enclosed cabinet for storage, 402 Series Joggers, and the V-Stack36i Stacker, which vertically stacks up to 22” of processed forms for easy unloading and handling.

These features combine to make the FD 2056 an ideal solution for streamlining your post processing.
