Formax FD 386 Automatic Touchscreen Folder Machine


The Formax FD 386 Automatic Touchscreen folder machine completes jobs exceptionally fast, folding up to 17,000 pieces per hour! The FD 386 folding machine offers any business, church, school or print-for-pay centers quick, easy set-up, and the versatility to complete a variety of fold jobs in minutes. Fully automated fold plates provide one touch setup of the 18 pre-programmed fold settings or for choosing one of the 27 custom folds that can be stored into memory.


The large full-color touchscreen control panel allows for untrained operators to walk up and start folding with little to no instruction. The Formax FD 386 paper folder is equipped with advanced software that allows for all standard fold types and paper sizes to be customized to meet your particular needs.


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 sheets stapled or unstapled to be folded at one time through the dedicated feed system with its own side guides and skew adjustment system.
