The Automatic FD 386 Document Folder offers any business, church, school or print-for-pay center quick, easy set-up, and the versatility to complete a variety of fold jobs in minutes. Jobs are completed exceptionally fast with the FD 386, folding up to 17,000 pieces per hour! Fully automated fold plates provide one touch set-up of the 18 pre-programmed fold settings or for choosing one of the 27 custom folds that can be stored into memory. In addition, the full-color touchscreen control panel makes the FD 386 extremely easy to use with a step-by-step user interface that is second to none.
Operators can load up to 500 sheets in the hopper, select their fold, press start and walk away to attend to other important tasks. The FD 386 will fold the 500 sheets in as fast as 2 minutes and hold the folded pieces on its patented Telescoping Conveyor System.
The patented Multi-Sheet Feeder is an optional feature that allows up to 4 stapled or unstapled sheets to be folded at one time through the dedicated feed system with its own side guides and skew adjustment.
The large full-color touchscreen control panel allows for untrained operators to walk up and start folding with little to no instruction. The FD 386 advanced software allows for all standard fold types and paper sizes to be customized to meet your particular needs.
The FD 386 can also be combined with the optional Formax V-Stack36i Vertical Stacker, which stacks up to 22” of folded documents, making them easier to unload for further processing.
