The FD 38Xi 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 38Xi 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 36 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 38Xi folding machine 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 with this Formax folding machine 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.


The large full-color touchscreen display and user friendly control panel allows for untrained operators to walk up and start folding with little to no instruction. The FD 38Xi advanced software allows for all standard fold types and paper sizes to be customized to meet your particular needs.


The FD 38Xi can also be used with the optional Formax V-Stack36i Vertical Stacker, which stacks up to 22" of folded documents, making them easier to unload for further processing. When it comes to paper folding, no one does it faster or with higher quality than Formax!
