Coverbind CBPF480 Expert Review
WHAT I LIKE:
The Coverbind CBPF480 paper folder is the solution to all of my paper folding struggles; no more papercuts or long hours needed to fold by hand. I love how simple it is to set up and use for anyone – with little to no instruction. This paper folding machine has 18 pre-programmed folds with popular folds such as Z, V, C, Double Parallel, Gate, and Fold-Out. If these aren't unique enough, you can program up to 36 additional folds for your pages. The full-color touchscreen control beats out on competitors; easily set your job up and press start. It's that simple.
The CBPF480 paper folding machine also counts your sheets as they’re folded and displays them on a 6-digit counter. It also has an 8-digit lifetime counter for personal use. This letter folder has a loading tray of 500-sheets and an hourly letter folding capacity of 17,000. And with the optional, extended, multi-sheet feeder, you can fold up to 4 pages simultaneously, even if they're stapled.
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
The top thing to consider before purchasing your letter folder is how many sheets a day you’re needing to fold. The CBPF480 might be overkill if you don't need to fold up to 17,000 sheets an hour (or need close to 50 different folding options).
I RECOMMEND THIS FOR: I recommend this for commercial businesses, printshops, or schools that have to send out weekly mailers, bulletins, brochures. A powerhouse, the CBPF480 automatic paper folding machine is a terrific addition for those that need high-volume output and desire the extra folding possibilities. You won't require a paper folding machine of this capacity if you work in a classroom or a small workplace. For smaller demands, you can check out the "little brother," the CBPF400. This letter folding machine still packs a punch with a 7,500 folded sheet output but has fewer pre-programmed fold options than the CBPF480.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
For low to large volume projects, Coverbind has launched a complete line of paper folding machines that can handle every folding need. If you own a large print business, a church that has to fold bulletins, or a school that needs to fold papers for a large student body, the Coverbind CBPF480 paper folding machine is essential. Thanks to the machine's straightforward setup, user-friendly touchscreen LCD, paper size options, and automatic feeding, I only need to load the documents I want to fold and click the button. What is possibly more effective than that?
