Item #: 04MBM408A
Brand: MBM


The MBM408A is a powerful friction-fed paper folding machine that will help you achieve perfectly folded sheets without much labor involved. It will automatic fold sheets as small as 3 ½" x 5" up to 11" x 17"* in a variety fold types, including 18 pre-sets popular folds, as well as any custom fold that you manually set-up with some simple folding bar adjustments. The friction-feed picking system is perfect for non-glossy paper stocks, and used three total rollers to grab the sheets, which lends to a quieter operation. It can complete folds at speeds up to 14,400 sheets per hour*, and has a simple-to-use LED touch screen. The controls feature a 4-digit add and subtract digital counter that can help you keep track of the running job status. You can also store up to 12 jobs in the memory for quick and simple recall of common job orders. A "test fold" button on the controls will pull through just two sheets so that you can inspect them for accuracy before you run the entire job. The feed tray will hold a stack of up to about 500 sheets*, so once your test job is inspected and approved, you can press start and walk away while the machine does the rest. Folded sheets exit onto a convenient tray with conveyor that creates neat stacking for easy finished handling. Maintenance on the 408A paper folder is also simple with a quick-release roller system that allows access to parts without any specialty tools or training.

The MBM 408A automatic paper folder is a dependable automatic paper folding machine that is a great fit for any mid- to high-volume office or mail room that is tired of inaccurate and labor-intensive hand-folding. The automatic single-sheet folding is maintained for different paper weights from 12 to 80 lb*, and an included auxiliary guide can be used for unique cross-folding (also called right angle folding**). An audible alert will sound when the machine is incorrectly operated and skew/micro-adjustment dials allow for precise settings. Ready to speed up operations?
