The Formax FD 396 Right-Angle Air-Feed Folder saves time and money. The FD 396 is combined with the FD 390 air feed machine to create a 2 machine system that can perform a right angle or cross fold (fold once in half, then fold again from the side) in one pass. Any other machine or system requires putting the paper through 2 times.The Formax FD396 folder is an air feed folding system that can handle very high volume and glossy stock. It is typically used to create a folded brochure, calendar or a self mailer. It will fold the paper the long way in half, and then fold the folded sheet in half or thirds from the side. The first fold is limited to a half fold. The second fold is limited to either a half or letter fold. So for example, you can fold a piece of 11 x 17 inch paper into a piece 8.5 x 3.75 (trifold). or 8.5 x 5.5 inches (half fold).Microadjustment knobs are used to fine-tune the stopper position making crisp and accurate folds every time. It also has multiple air adjustments for feed consistency across paper types. The FD 396 can handle a wide variety of paper sizes and weights, including glossy and coated papers. It is designed by the manufacturer to process up to 500,000 sheets per month.
