Choosing a Paper Folder: Why the Martin Yale 1611 Ease-of-Use AutoFold Paper Folder is the Right Choice

***Part of our Made In The USA Special***

Purchasing a paper folder is an investment to be considered by all businesses looking to increase productivity and save money. Before choosing a paper folding machine, it is important to consider the following:

1) Volume: How often do you plan on using the machine?

2) Fold Types: What types of folds do you need this machine to perform?

3) Paper Types: What kind of paper do you plan to fold?

4) Programmable Memory: Will you have multiple recurring folding jobs? Programmable Memory makes it possible to record or “program” the details of any given job, therefore, reducing future set-up time and improving overall efficiency.

In addition, you will need to decide whether your work load requires a friction fed paper folder or an air fed paper folder. A Friction Fed Paper Folder uses rubber rollers to grab and insert the paper into the folding machine. This is the most commonly used type of feeding system, and works great for offices and production facilities / print shops. One of the most popular friction-fed paper folding machines is the Martin Yale 1611 Ease-of-Use AutoFold Paper Folder, which is perfect for large mailrooms and offices in need of high output rates in a short amount of time.

There is no fanning needed when you use the Martin Yale 1611 AutoFolder all you have to do is put the paper in the machine and it automatically folds to the desired fold type. The conveyor exit table makes it convenient and easy to handle folded stacks.
