The FD 38X 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. In addition, the new 2.8” (71mm) backlit LCD display and control panel makes the Formax FD 38X folder machine extremely easy to use with a step by step user interface that is second to none. Fully automated fold plates and AutoStack Stacker Wheels provide one touch setup of the 18 pre-programmed fold settings or for choosing one of the 35 custom folds that can be stored into memory.


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 Formax FD 38X folding machine will fold the 500 sheets in as fast as 2 minutes and hold the folded pieces on its patented Telescoping Conveyor System.
