Purchasing a paper folder is an investment to be considered by all businesses looking to increase productivity and save money. However, choosing the wrong folder can be costly and time consuming. At Binding101 we would like to help guide you towards making the right decision for your investment.
Paper folders can be divided into two main categories by type of feeding system, Friction Feed and Air Feed. Friction Feed paper folders use rubber rollers to grab and insert the paper into the folding machine. This is the most commonly used type of feeding system, however it cannot be used with all applications. The rubber rollers can cause tracking or smudging of copier toner. In addition, the rubber rollers do not work well with glossy paper stock. The paper slips, is mis-fed, and ultimately causes paper jams. Therefore, applications with heavy toner coverage or on glossy stock should be run on air-feed folders. Air-Feed folders use a vacuum pump that picks up individual sheets of paper and inserts them into the machine.
