MBM 408A Expert Review

WHAT I LIKE:
I love having an automatic paper folding machine like the MBM 408A around the office; it’s like having an extra person around to help! I don’t need to stand around to switch paper sizes between jobs. I load up to 500 sheets in the paper folder loading tray, select my preferences on the touchscreen, and work on the next thing. I love how I don’t have to supervise closely on jobs.
 

There’s seemingly no limit when it comes to options on the 408A paper folding machine. It can automatically switch between fold jobs, even if they’re different sizes, from 3.5” x 5” to 11” x 17”. Along with versatility in size handling, I have a large selection of pre-programmed folds to choose from, 36 to be exact. But I can preprogram up to 12 more folds if needed.
 

The MBM 408A desktop paper folder also has additional hardware, such as micro-adjustment dials, because precision and professionalism are important. Don't worry about any of your projects being folded slightly off thanks to these. Because feeding and collecting occur from the same side and an exit conveyor also produces neat stacks, the process doesn't require a ton of manual labor. My time is saved, and jams are avoided when the system automatically detects a double feed and alerts me.

THINGS TO CONSIDER:
If you need absolute perfection when it comes to your folded sheets, you should know that with friction-feeding, there are some light markings that can occur due to the pressure applied by the rollers. Not to worry, it’s common in the industry with friction feeders, but to avoid this you need to look at air-fed paper folders instead.
 

I RECOMMEND THIS FOR:
I recommend the MBM 408A automatic paper folder to medium-sized churches, mailrooms, offices, schools, or print-shops. If you’re looking for a higher sheet capacity, higher production output, and larger paper sizes, you could consider the MBM 1800S Tabletop Paper Folder. This “big brother” can fold sheets at a rate of 18,000 sheets an hour and handle larger paper sizes up to 13” x 19”. The MBM 1800S also is air fed instead friction fed. This will help your sheets avoid some of those common light markings left behind by friction feeders.
 

THE BOTTOM LINE:
Overall, the MBM 408A is the best tabletop paper folder in its class. This is a great addition for those looking for the compact size, 48 pre-programmed fold options, and an output of 14,400 every hour. Easily set up in 15 minutes without any extensive training. Great for businesses, churches, mailrooms, and printshops, it’s easy enough for anyone to use.
