DOVER, NH: Formax Direct introduces the new FD 3300 Tabletop Air-Suction Folder to replace the discontinued FD 3200 with enhanced standard features and increased speed. Fully automated, compact and quiet, it’s ideal for processing on-demand digitally printed documents.
Air-suction feed technology is designed to handle heavy or coated stock, and helps to eliminate feed marks which may occur with friction feed systems. Instead of a traditional external compressor or air pump, the FD 3300 uses internal DC fans to produce suction, which minimizes static electricity and improves feed performance. Fan speed and air flow can be adjusted independently, utilizing the interactive control panel and external adjustment knobs. In addition, the FD 3300 includes a side fan system to further enhance the feeding quality.
The FD 3300 features automatic fold settings, automatic paper size detection, control panel with LCD display, and both Optical and Ultrasonic Double Feed Detection, which provide enhanced document security. The FD 3300 is programmed with 6 common folds: C, V, Z, fold out, double parallel, and gate, and can store up to 30 custom folds in memory. With variable speed to accommodate a range of paper thicknesses, it processes up to 18,600 sheets per hour, producing crisp, accurate folds.
The FD 3300 comes standard with a cross-folding guide, a four-digit counter with batch counting capability, four fold rollers for accuracy, and a variety of document security features.
