    Heavy duty, manual setup folding machine. Folds 16 to 28# bond paper up to 12" x 18". 500 sheet hopper.

    The FD 346 Document Folder is a fast, dependable and easy-to-use solution for virtually all folding applications. The color touchscreen control panel uses internationally-recognized symbols in place of text, making it easy for anyone to use. Six popular folds are clearly marked on the fold plates: simply slide the fold stop to the desired fold. Additional adjustments can be made with the fine tuning knobs at the end of each fold plate for precision folding.

    No need to stand and watch over this folder: operators can load up to 500 sheets in the hopper, set the fold plates, press start and walk away to attend to other important tasks. The FD 346 will fold the 500 sheets in no time and hold the finished pieces on its patented telescoping conveyor system. For easy batch processing, users can choose the Formax AutoBatch program. Simply input a specific number of sets, number of sheets per set, and the delay between sets, then press start. It’s that easy.

    The optional multi-sheet feeder allows up to 4 sheets stapled or unstapled to be folded at one time through a dedicated feed system with its own side guides and skew adjustment system.

    The FD 346 is capable of processing paper up to 18” (457mm) in length and up to 12.25” (311mm) in width giving it the flexibility
    to handle a variety of paper sizes. The fold plates are easily adjusted for custom jobs, and operators can fold in virtually any configuration that requires only two folds. A cross folding guide is included, which adds to the FD 346’s flexibility allowing for additional folds in a second pass.

    The innovative touchscreen, simple set-up and operation make the FD 346 an ideal solution for any church, school or small business that is cost conscious but requires the versatility and dependability of a more expensive folder.
