Formax FD 324 Paper Folding Machine, Paper Folder

Economical and User Friendly
The FD 324 Document Folder offers an unmatched level of performance and affordability. This rugged, compact unit processes up to 8,600 sheets per hour and can accommodate paper sizes up to 12” x 18”. The removable fold plates are clearly marked with four common fold settings for Letter, Zig-Zag, Double Parallel, and Half Fold, in 11”, 14” and 17” paper sizes. Quick release fold stops and fine tune adjustment knobs ensure crisp, accurate folds every time.

Designed with ease of operation in mind, it utilizes a three-tire drop-in feed system, eliminating the need to fan paper. Simply square the paper stack and load it into the feed tray. The LCD control panel features a 3-digit resettable counter with AutoBatch, which allows users to process a specific number of sheets with a pause between sets, ideal for groups of flyers or mailings. In addition, the output conveyor includes easily adjustable stacker wheels for neat, sequential stacking of folded pieces.

The FD 324 is constructed with a durable all-metal frame and side covers. The three-tire friction feed system accurately pulls paper into the folder, while the skew knob allows for moving the feed table left or right, to adjust for minor misalignments.

Clearly-marked fold settings and simple out-of-the-box operation make the FD 324 a perfect addition to schools, churches, and offices looking for easy setup and minimal adjustments.
